Today it is exactly 154 years ago that Lewis Carroll made up the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ story!
The story arose at 4 July 1862, when Lewis Carroll (pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), was on a boat trip with a friend, Alice, and her sisters Lorina and Edith. Alice grew restless and begged Dodgson for a story “with lots of nonsense in it”. So started the famous tale, which was continued on further outings, and was later expanded for publication.
Exactly three years later, on 4 July 1865, the first edition of the book was printed.
