Five fun facts about Alice:

  1. The novels were banned in China in 1931, on the grounds that “animals should not use human language…”
  2. The tree that is said to have inspired the Cheshire Cat’s tree stands in the garden behind Alice’s home at Christ Church College, Oxford.
  3. Lewis Carroll suffered from a rare neurological disorder that causes strange hallucinations and affects the size of visual objects, which can make the sufferer feel bigger or smaller than they are – a huge theme of the book. The disease, first discovered by English psychiatrist John Todd in 1955, was later named Alice in Wonderland Syndrome. It is also known as Todd’s syndrome.
  4. Dinah (Alice’s cat) has become a popular literary cat. Not directly linked but if you like cats why not visit Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium?
  5. Kathryn Beaumont voices Alice in the Disney animated film. She also voices Wendy Darling in Peter Pan.
