Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, commonly abbreviated to Alice in Wonderland, is a fantasy novel written by British mathematician, logician, photographer, and writer Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, published in 1865. The story tells how a girl named Alice falls down a hole, finding herself in a peculiar world, populated by humans and anthropomorphic creatures. The book plays with logic, giving the novel great popularity with both children and adults. It is considered one of the best novels of the genre of Nonsense. Its narrative and structure, along with its characters, have been a great influence on both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre.Some of Lewis Carroll's most famous characters appear in this work, such as the White Rabbit, the March Hare, the Hatter, the Blue Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat or the Queen of Hearts. Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There is a children's novel written by Lewis Carroll in 1871.1 It is the continuation of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (although it does not make references to what happens in that book). Many things that happen in the book seem, metaphorically, reflected in a mirror.While the first book plays with living cards, this time Alice is involved in a crazy game of chess. Carroll provides us with a list of the movements that occur in it, although some of them go against the rules of the game, as if it were a small child who was playing.

His best known works are Alice in Wonderland and its continuation, Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There.
