Lewis Carroll was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (27 January 1832 – 14 January 1898), a British writer, poet, logician (mathematics expert), Anglican clergyman, and photographer. He was born in Daresbury, Cheshire. He is most famous for his story Alice's Adventures in Wonderland which he told to a young friend, Alice Liddell, when he took the girl and two of her sisters on a boat trip. Alice enjoyed the story and asked Dodgson to write it down. Carroll then wrote a second story about Alice called Through the Looking-Glass. Both stories are still popular with people all over the world.
