Born on January 27, 1832 in Daresbury, London, (United Kingdom), Lewis Carroll was actually the pen name for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson – a mathematician and gifted writer renowned for his word play and whimsical writings, including the ever-popular Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1871).
Carroll was an ordained beacon but had a stammer that prevented him from speaking in public. He was always fond of children and loved writing stories for them. His fun and imaginative characters, including The Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat and White Rabbit, are widely celebrated.

Happy Birthday Mr. Carroll!
