The Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, writing under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll, bequeathed to the world a singular treasure with Alice and her adventures in Wonderland. He has left us a record of how Alice came to be written: "I distinctly remember, now as I write, how in a desperate attempt to strike out some new line of fairy-lore, I had sent my heroine down a rabbit hole, without the least idea of what was to happen afterwards...Full many a year has slipped away, since that 'golden afternoon' that gave thee birth, but I can call it up as if it were yesterday - the cloudless blue above, the watery mirror below, the boat drifting idly on its way, the tinkle of the drops that fell from the oars, as they waved so sleepily to and fro, and (the one bright gleam of light in all the slumbrous scene) the three eager faces hungry for news of fairy-land and who would not be said 'Nay' to; from whose lips 'Tell us a story, please,' had all the stern immutability of fate."

Source of legend and lyric, reference and conjecture, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is for most children pure pleasure in prose. While adults try to decipher Lewis Carroll's putative use of complex mathematical codes in the text, or debate his alleged use of opium, young readers simply dive with Alice through the rabbit hole, pursuing "The dream-child moving through a land / Of wonders wild and new." There they encounter the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter, among a multitude of other characters--extinct, fantastical, and commonplace creatures. Alice journeys through this Wonderland, trying to fathom the meaning of her strange experiences. But they turn out to be "curiouser and curiouser," seemingly without moral or sense.
For more than 130 years, children have reveled in the delightfully non-moralistic, non-educational virtues of this classic. In fact, at every turn, Alice's new companions scoff at her traditional education. The Mock Turtle, for example, remarks that he took the "regular course" in school: Reeling, Writhing, and branches of Arithmetic-Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision. Carroll believed John Tenniel's illustrations were as important as his text. Naturally, Carroll's instincts were good; the masterful drawings are inextricably tied to the well-loved story.
