Happy birthday, Alice!

On May 4th, 1852, Alice Pleasance Liddell was born.
She is THE Alice which inspired the wonderful book, "Alice in Wonderland".
I'm currently reading a fascinating children's book about her, and how she met Charles Dodgson. (Lewis Carroll) The name of the book is "The Other Alice", by Cristina Bjork.
The book has exquisite illustrations by Inga-Karin Eriksson. I've always loved illustrations better than the story in a book!
Happy 158th birthday, dear Alice!
