‘Alice’s Adventures Under Ground’, was first version of the story told to Alice and her sisters, Lorina and Edith, on a trip down the river on the 4th July 1862. The children enjoyed the story so much that Alice asked Dodgson to write it down for her. The manuscript was presented to Alice as an early Christmas present on 26 November 1864. The very original adventures of Alice are now reprinted and re-illustrated in a classic, yet modern way by children artist Laura Livi. The book also contains a biography of Lewis Carroll and a survey about the Victorian girls that might have inspired the literary Alice.
