Literary Children

As most of you know, I work in the children's department at a book shop. I love it, and I love the books. Let us not check out some of the children that inspired some of those lovely books. To do this, we shall start at the beginning, and when we get to the end, we'll stop. And of course, that beginning begins with a little girl named Alice Liddell:
