This activity was inspired by the copy of Lewis Carroll's (1832- 1898) Alice's Adeventures in Wonderland held in our Special Collections.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was originally published in 1895 but the version held in our Special Collections was published in 1922.
It is full of colourful prints of different scenes from the story, such as the Mad Hatter's Tea Party!
