Today, May 4th, Alice Pleasance Liddell (1852 - 1934) completes 161 years old.
Alice was the “real Alice in Wonderland”. This little girl, as a child, inspired the brilliant mind of Mr. Charles Dodgson (you may know him as Lewis Carroll) to write Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, one of children’s literature’s most precious and iconic books of all time.
Happy birthday, dreamchild.
