The book you’re about to read, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, is Carroll’s best-known work and was published in 1865. (Mark Twain was just starting to write at this time.) This book was born when Carroll was on a boat trip with a friend and the friend?s three daughters, one of whom was named Alice. Carroll started by inventing a simple story on the boat, then expanded it when he wrote it down. If you enjoy it, you might want to read its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There?.
