Author biography: Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) - Though he published many works of nonfiction and fiction, today the nineteenth-century English author Lewis Carroll is best remembered for his fantasy novels for older children and for his nonsensical poems; in particular, his character Alice remains a perennial favorite of popular culture and the subject of countless adaptations in various media. Readers of all ages enjoy Carroll's sense of magic and mischief, his inventive use of language, and his surreal fantasy world, Wonderland -- but note that Carroll's absurdist style and occasionally scary situations can be intense and even disturbing, especially for younger readers. Start with: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
