Author Notes

Charles Luthwidge Dodgson was born in Daresbury, England on January 27, 1832. He became a minister of the Church of England and a lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford. He was the author, under his own name, of An Elementary Treatise on Determinants, Symbolic Logic, and other scholarly treatises.

He is better known by his pen name of Lewis Carroll. Using this name, he wrote Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. He was also a pioneering photographer, and he took many pictures of young children, especially girls, with whom he seemed to empathize. He died on January 14, 1898.

Booklist Review

Gr. 5-8. Librarians who purchased Todd's rendition of Alice in Wonderland (Booklist 81:1552 Jl 85) and like the illustrator's portrayal of Alice as a fragile child with short, dark hair will want to add this companion volume to their collections. Todd chose as his model Alice Liddell-the young girl who inspired Carroll to write the original book. Full-color single-page spreads have a haunting quality that works well with the story's magic and fantasy. BE. Fantasy [CIP] 87-9761
