The Real Alice in Wonderland: A Role Model for the Ages
by C.M. Rubin
Publisher's Description
There are over 1000 books, films, operas, plays and video games based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. It is estimated that over 7 billion people have seen or read the book. Disney’s new Tim Burton/Johnny Depp movie will increase that audience base even further.

Alice Pleasance Liddell inspired what is considered today to be the greatest children’s story of all time. The book brought Alice and Lewis Carroll together forever. The story behind the story is a dramatic saga of a very creative, curious, and magnetic young girl who grew up to become a cultural icon and one of the most celebrated women of the last 100 years. It is a story of love, tragedy, duty, courage and loyalty to family and country – that will surprise and deeply move you. It will make you think again about what it means to inspire.

In 2006, best-selling author C.M. Rubin and her daughter, Gabriella Rubin (who are related to the Liddell family), began an incredible journey to create the ultimate book about Alice’s life. Their grand pictorial biographic vision for the book involved collecting photographs spanning two centuries, reaching out to many celebrated Alice in Wonderland artists (including Vik Muniz, Annie Liebovitz, Mark Steele, Lizzy Rockwell, Helen Oxenbury, Frances Broomfield, David Cooper and Tom Otterness), and connecting with museums, libraries and schools around the world. The Real Alice in Wonderland is told using never before seen pictures along with prominent voices from Alice’s lifetime and from the present day.
