No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Rage-filled by abuse, author Lewis Carroll hid smut in his children's books.
-- Was on the "short list" for the Children's Literature Association's annual award based on the quality of its research.
-- Shows how the famous "Alice" books were filled with hidden smut and intended to fool both children and adults.
-- This work suggests strongly why Carroll's children's books are decidedly not for children.
-- The research on this title identified a very angry man and led to its 1996 sequel, Jack the Ripper: "Light-hearted Friend" which identified Lewis Carroll as the famous murderer of London prostitutes.

A psychological biography of Charles Dodgson, aka Lewis Carroll. It identifies the rage which lies buried in his children's books, including the famous "Alice" works, and the origins of that rage. Identifies where Dodgson coyly revealed the presence of this hidden material, and presents numerous examples to prove that they are not accidental.
