     Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a book that tells the story of a girl names Alice who follows a white rabbit into a rabbit hole that leads into a strange world. The author, Lewis Carroll (18321898) was a mathematician and logician, but was famous for this book. He first thought of these stories one day while he was boating up the Thames River with a friend and her three daughters. Carroll started to tell the children stories about a girl named Alice. He later wrote these stories down for those three girls, and later, in 1865, the tales were published as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The book was a slow but steadily increasing success, and by the time of Lewis Carroll's death it had become the most popular children's book in England.
