Early narrations of the story

The story of Alice in Wonderland Experience was first narrated Carroll to Lorina, Alice and Edith Liddel, who were the daughters of Henry Gearge Liddell the dean of Christ Church in Oxford. Then, Alice requested Carroll to write the stories for her, and in response to her request, he produced a collection of stories entitled “Alice Adventures Under Ground”. Later, a visitor to Carroll home saw the book and through that, it was necessary to have it published. As a result, Carroll revised and expanded the book. However, upon its publishing, the book received significant criticism. The reason was that it was published in the time when moral lessons to the children were more emphasized on. Having understoog how the mind of the children  work, Carroll appealed to their sense of ridiculous. Using the book’s riddle and poems, Alice in Wonderland Experience managed to reach greater heights. From the success of the book, Carroll went ahead and published other books such as ‘Through the Looking-Grass’ and ‘What Alice Found There’ published in 1871. By the end of the 19th century, Alice in Wonderland Experience and the other books had become the most popular children’s book in England. In the following two decades, it was among the most popular storybooks around the world.
