Down the Rabbit Hole



You may know Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, or better yet, his pen name Lewis Carroll, as the creator of the imaginative and very strange world of Wonderland. He is the man who taught us how to catch the ferocious Jabberwock and taught us how to enjoy tea with a few mad fellows. January 27 is this remarkable man's birthday, and to show some proper heart, that won't get our heads chopped off that is, let's journey down the rabbit hole with some inspiring reads based on his famous story Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass.
