Lewis Carroll, whose real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 – 1898), was the third of eleven children. Charles was a clever boy, educated first at home and then later at Rugby School, a well-known English boarding school, where he was not very happy. In 1851 he went to study at Oxford. There he won a lectureship in mathematics which enabled him to earn a living. As a young man, he wrote funny and satirical poetry and short stories. In 1856, he published his first piece of work, a poem, under the name of “Lewis Carroll.” That same year he took up photography, and he also met the new Dean of Christ Church and his family, who became close friends of his. He spent a lot of time with the mother, and the three daughters Ina, Alice and Edith. They used to go out on the river for picnics, and on one such excursion in 1862, Dodgson told them a story. Alice Liddell begged him to write it down. The story became Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and was an immediate sensation. (penguinreaders.com)

Peter Newell (1862 – 1924) was an American artist and author. A native of McDonough County, Illinois, Newell built a reputation in the 1880’s and 1890’s for his humorous drawings and poems, which appeared in numerous period magazines. He later wrote and illustrated several popular children’s boks, such as Topsys and Turvys, a collection of poetry and images which could be viewed upside-down or right-side up. Newell often illustrated the works of other authors, such as Mark Twain, Stephen Crane, John Kendrick Bangs, and Lewis Carroll. He also created a comic strip serial, The Naps of Polly Sleepyhead, which debuted in the New York Herald in 1905. (Wikipedia)
