The Original Alice in Wonderland

On July 4th, 1862, Alice In Wonderland was born. Lewis and the Liddell sisters set out from Folly Bridge in a rowing boat. Along the way, the sisters asked for a story, and Lewis told them about a girl named Alice who fell down a rabbit hole. Alice Liddell, one of the sisters, loved it so much that she asked Lewis to write it down. His story fell into hands of novelist Henry Kingsley, and pushed him to publish his story. His story became the most famous book in the United Kingdom, and as a result Carroll wrote a sequel "Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There".
