I heard they aren't really stories about fairytales, but based on real events like some nursery rimes like Mary, Mary Quite Contrary and Humpty dumpty. Is Alice in wonderland about Victorian era or the Elizabeth one? IS Baum the original Ross Perot?
I think Alice in Wonderland is a mesmerizing mishmash of cute little references to things that amused, bemused, or befuddled Lewis Carroll (aka Charles Dodgson).

Mr. Baum was a man of many imaginings.
