  11. MªJOSÉ GASCH LÓPEZ
    1. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson
    2. Author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer.
    3. He suffered from a stammer. As a young child he suffered a fever that left him deaf in one ear. At seventeen he suffered a severe attack of whooping cough which caused him cronical weak chest. He experienced episodes of migraine. Although he was said to suffer from epilepsy, there is not enough evidence of that fact.
    4. Photography
    5. Chess
    6. The very first illustrator of "Alice" was Lewis Carroll himself who illustrated his original handwritten manuscript.
    7. Although famous illustrators at the time, like Denslow or Shepard have never illustrated Lewis Carroll's works, I think the answer is Edward Lear, author and illustrator, because Carroll and Lear are both related with the same genre of literary Nonsense.
    8. Russia
    9. False. He was widely assumed to have derived his own "Alice" from Alice Liddell but Dodgson himself repeatedly denied that his "little heroine" was based on any real child.
    10. On July 4, 1862
    11. That day Dodgson and his friend Robinson Duckworth, rowed the three Liddell children, Alice, Lorina and Edith, up the Thames from Oxford to Godstow. On this trip Doudgson passed the time by telling the children a nonsense tale.
