Published in 1865 by British author Lewis Carroll, this fantasy adventure story introduced the world to Alice and introduced Alice to some very strange but beloved creatures, including The White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, and The Queen of Hearts. This silly tale that started out as a collection of stories written for one little girl became so popular that even Queen Victoria, the British monarch, couldn't put it down! Lewis Carroll, whose real name was Charles L. Dodgson, went on to write several sequels and other books, but Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Alice through the Looking-Glass are by far his most famous stories. Author Dana Meachen Rau takes readers through the book's history--from Carroll's initial inspiration--Alice Liddell--all the way to the movies, plays, and other adaptations that are entertaining fans today.

I am Alice Smith, but my real name Bilari, because under a bilari tree I born, on Rocklea Station...A few years ago we went to the museum in Perth, to see all the old papers, and when my daughter follow them history way back, from Rocklea Station, my name is there- Bilari, and I born 1923. Alice Smith, born 79 years ago in the Pilbara region of W.A. was raised in a traditional hunter-gatherer community, and married in the traditional Aboriginal way. She gave birth to and raised most of her nine children according to the tribal ways. When she moved to Roebourne, later in life, she fostered 15 children and was rewarded for her generous nature and devoted service to the children of the Pilbara with the presentation of a Certificate of Appreciation from Roebourne Community. Delightfully engaging, Alice's story is made all the more vivid by the way she has been able to paint an amazingly detailed picture of a way of life that has, sadly, almost disappeared.
