Author Bio
Lewis Carroll
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) was an Anglican deacon and a tutor in mathematics--his great love--at Oxford. All his life, he was fond of puzzles and word games, and he published several mathematical treatises. He was also an amateur photographer, specializing in portraits of children which, in the late 20th century, are considered somewhat ambiguous. His great works, ALICE IN WONDERLAND (1865) and THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS (1872) were written to amuse the daughters of a friend; Lewis Carroll himself, though he loved children, never produced any. Carroll's books are full of wonders, and are often quoted; perhaps the most famous quote is something the Red Queen says in THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: "Now here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"

Even as a child, pop-up master Robert Sabuda was interested in this difficult art form: his creation of a pop-up WIZARD OF OZ for his mother was the precursor of a wildly successful career. Many years later, Sabuda revisited that project, and in November 2000 he published a bestselling pop-up version of WIZARD OF OZ. Sabuda earned a B.F.A. from the Pratt Institute in 1987, and is best known for his various Christmas pop-ups, as well the opulent, informative Encyclopedia Prehistorica series.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"The quintessential Victorian children's classic, Carroll's ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND has been gloriously re-envisioned by pop-up master Sabuda. The bizarre settings and rude creatures of Wonderland burst out with every turn of the page, starting with an ingenious peep-show rabbit hole and ending with an explosion of cards." 09/15/2003

Publishers Weekly
"Readers will be astonished by every tableau in this pop-up extravaganza." 09/22/2003
