Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll - is an 1865 English novel by Lewis Carroll. A young girl named Alice falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world of anthropomorphic creatures. It is seen as an example of the literary nonsense genre.

One of the best-known works of Victorian literature, its narrative, structure, characters and imagery have had huge influence on popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre. The book has never been out of print and has been translated into 174 languages. Its legacy covers adaptations for screen, radio, art, ballet, opera, musicals, theme parks, board games and video games. Carroll published a sequel in 1871 entitled Through the Looking-Glass and a shortened version for young children, The Nursery 'Alice', in 1890.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was inspired when, on 4 July 1862, Lewis Carroll and Reverend Robinson Duckworth rowed up The Isis in a boat with three young girls.

The three girls were the daughters of scholar Henry Liddell: Lorina Charlotte Liddell (aged 13; 'Prima' in the book's prefatory verse); Alice Pleasance Liddell (aged 10; 'Secunda' in the verse); and Edith Mary Liddell (aged 8; 'Tertia' in the verse).

The journey began at Folly Bridge, Oxford, and ended 5 miles (8.0 km) away in Godstow, Oxfordshire. During the trip Carroll told the girls a story that he described in his diary as 'Alice's Adventures Under Ground' and which his journal says he 'undertook to write out for Alice'.
