Lewis Carroll's real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. He was born in 1832 in Daresbury, England. While teaching mathematics at Oxford University, he made up stories for his friend's three daughters. The story he told the little girl named Alice and her sisters became Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. He had it published into a book in 1865.

Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich made up stories for her little sister when she was young, including one "true story" that she'd starred on Sesame Street, but had turned herself invisible to viewers. Today, she writes fiction and nonfiction,including the NAACP Image Award nominee Two Naomis, with Audrey Vernick, and its sequel, Nerdy Book Club winner Naomis Too. She's the author of 8th Grade Superzero, a Notable Book for a Global Society, Someday is Now: Clara Luper and the 1958 Oklahoma City Sit-ins, a Notable Social Studies Trade Book, Above and Beyond: NASA's Journey to Tomorrow, and the editor of The Hero Next Door, a middle grade anthology from We Need Diverse Books. She lives with her family in NYC where she writes, makes things, and needs to get more sleep.
