"Curiouser and curiouser!" cried Alice  (she was so much surprised, that for the moment  she quite forgot how to speak good English.)  "Now I'm opening out like the largest telescope that  ever was! Good-bye,  feet!"

Alice and all her many friends will never be  forgotten so long as books for children are published.  The fascinating adventures of this timeless little  girl as she plunges down the rabbit-hole, shrinks  and grows, meets the pack of cards and the chess  pieces -- should be read regularly by all ages for  their totally original fantasy, their humor, and  their charm.

It accidentally started the entire image of Lewis Carroll as a pedophile by deliberately suppressing all the evidence for his sometimes unconventional relationships with women, explaining that some of those women had been little girls… The Victorians had no concept of our modern idea of pedophilia. In fact, a man who loved pre-pubescent girls was considered especially saintly and innocent, and this was why Collingwood over-emphasized this aspect of his uncle's character so much. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll (1832 – 1898), was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer. Stuart Dodgson Collingwood (1870–1937) was an English clergyman and headmaster. He wrote two books about his uncle, Lewis Carroll.
