Alice

Alice the heroine of two books by Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1872); as depicted by the illustrator Tenniel, Alice is a child with long straight fair hair held back with a band of ribbon (in a style now known as an Alice band), who meets a bewildering variety of playing-card, chess-board, and other characters in the worlds she finds down a rabbit hole and on the other side of a mirror. The stories were originally told by Carroll (pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, 1832–98) to Alice Liddell, 10-year-old daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, Oxford.
