Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was published in 1865. The story goes that Lewis Carroll, whose real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, and Reverend Robinson Duckworth rowed the Liddell girls from Folly Bridge to Godstow. It was a rainy, gloomy day so Lewis Carroll entertained them all with the story of a bored girl named Alice who finds herself falling into an adventure. Alice Liddell loved the story so much that she asked Carroll to write it down for her. A month later he took the girls on another boat ride and expanded the story for them. He set to work, not long after, on the version we all know and love.
