Alice in Wonderland must be one of the most creative stories ever. The story goes way back until 1865. The writers name is Lewis Caroll, but this is an pseudonym. His real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. 

Alice in Wonderland must be one of the most creative stories ever. The story goes way back until 1865. Lewis Caroll originally illustrated his book by himself but he did not have as much talent as John Tenniel (The original illustrator) has. Author Lewis Caroll asked if John Tenniel would do his illustrations which he agreed to. Only was Caroll not the easiest person to work with. He wanted everything in a very specific way. At first he refused to work for the other two books as well when Caroll asked him. Caroll contacted lots of other illustrators but none of them would live up to his expectations. After two and a half years persuading, Tenniel finally agreed to work on the other two books.

After all these years, Alice in Wonderland is still a widely beloved children’s book that has been turn into films, theatrical performances, ballets etc. 

And John Tenniel still gets remembered for all his amazing and creative illustrations all over the world.
