Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Caroll
Translated into at least 97 languages, Lewis Caroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" has never been out of print since 1865.
The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children.
One of the best-known and most popular works of English-language fiction, its narrative, structure, characters and imagery have been enormously influential in popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre.
Its ongoing legacy encompasses many adaptations for stage, screen, radio, art, ballet, theme parks, board games, and video games.
Carroll published a sequel in 1871, titled Through the Looking-Glass, and a shortened version for young children, The Nursery "Alice" in 1890.
It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre.
