Written by Charles Dodgson (1832-1898), this well-received author is best known by his pseudonym Lewis Carroll. A polymath who is arguably best known as an author, but who also worked as a mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer, his most famous works are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and the sequel Alice Through the Looking-Glass. Dodgson was a prolific writer who contributed children's stories, mathematical theses and political pamphlets to a variety of magazines.

This wonderful book is beautifully pictured by Jessie Willcox Smith, born in Philadelphia, USA. In 1894 she took classes under the artist Howard Pyle and embarked on a career as an illustrator. She quickly became a prolific and successful artist best-known for her Good Housekeeping covers and her twelve illustrations for Charles Kingsley's The Water-Babies (1916).
