Alice In Wonderland by Parragon BooksOne summer afternoon, Alice, a little girl in Victorian England, starts to drift off to sleep while sitting under a tree with her sister. I shall be late! But the hole turns out to be very deep, and Alice falls down it for a long time. Finally, Alice lands unhurt on a pile of leaves. Seeing the Rabbit down a hallway, she chases it, but find only an empty hallway lined with doors, as well as a glass table and a golden key. She reduces her size again by waving a fan which the Rabbit drops when he scurries through the hall, but — now only a few inches high — she slips and falls into a salty lake created by the tears she wept when she was huge. Alice meets a number of creatures in the pool, and after climbing out, they tell stories and have a Caucus-race to dry off.

With its fantastical tales and riddles , it became one of the most popular works of English-language fiction. It was notably illustrated by British artist John Tenniel. The story centres on Alice, a young girl who falls asleep in a meadow and dreams that she follows the White Rabbit down a rabbit hole. She has many wondrous, often bizarre adventures with thoroughly illogical and very strange creatures, often changing size unexpectedly she grows as tall as a house and shrinks to 3 inches [7 cm]. She encounters the hookah-smoking Caterpillar, the Duchess with a baby that becomes a pig , and the Cheshire Cat , and she attends a strange endless tea party with the Mad Hatter and the March Hare.
The tale plays with logic , giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. Alice was published in , three years after Charles Lutwidge Dodgson and the Reverend Robinson Duckworth rowed in a boat, on 4 July  this popular date of the "golden afternoon"  might be a confusion or even another Alice-tale, for that particular day was cool, cloudy and rainy  , up the Isis with the three young daughters of Henry Liddell the Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University and Dean of Christ Church : Lorina Charlotte Liddell aged 13, born "Prima" in the book's prefatory verse ; Alice Pleasance Liddell aged 10, born "Secunda" in the prefatory verse ; Edith Mary Liddell aged 8, born "Tertia" in the prefatory verse. The journey began at Folly Bridge near Oxford and ended five miles away in the village of Godstow. During the trip Charles Dodgson told the girls a story that featured a bored little girl named Alice who goes looking for an adventure. The girls loved it, and Alice Liddell asked Dodgson to write it down for her. He began writing the manuscript of the story the next day, although that earliest version no longer exists. The girls and Dodgson took another boat trip a month later when he elaborated the plot to the story of Alice, and in November he began working on the manuscript in earnest.
