Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) was the pen name for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. A mathematics lecturer at Oxford, Dodgson enjoyed mathematical puzzles and jokes, several of which are included in his best-known works, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass."
"Only Lewis Carroll has shown us the world upside down the way a child sees it, and has made us laugh as children laugh." --Virginia Woolf; 'Usborne are widely known for their very popular range of abridged classics... Chunky and complete with clear print and colour illustrations, these should appeal to those parents and grandparents keen to encourage children to encounter past great reads in their entirety. With this very approachable and palatable format there is a good chance they will succeed' - The Guardian
