"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" was written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pen name Lewis Carroll and was originally published in 1865. Lewis Carroll was born on 27 January 1832 in Daresbury, Chesire, England. He studied at Christ Church where he also taught Mathematics. He was the eldest son of a church minister and although a very shy individual, he loved to entertain his younger siblings with fabulous imaginary animals and unusual creatures, and humans doing extraordinary fetes. In spite of a debilitating stammer and poor hearing, Carroll possessed a talent in storytelling and writing which entertained many generations to come. "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" made him famous in England and by 1932, it had become the most popular story around the world. Carroll died in 1898.
Samoan readers, particularly the children, are familiar with various retellings of fairytale classics such as Cinderella, Snow White, or Uncle Remus' Tales, and religious texts such as biblical stories in Samoan; but this is the first known published translation of "Alice" in their language.
