Among his best loved work is Water Babies, that fascinating mingling of a delightful story for children with nature study and satire. Another child's book that can hardly help be ing a favourite so long as there are children to enjoy it is the Alice in Wonderland of" Lewis Carroll." The story is told that Queen Victoria once asked him if he would not send her another of his delightful books, and that he responded by presenting her with a mathematical treatise ; for " Lewis Carroll " when not telling stories was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a learned professor of mathematics.

Charles Reade wrote far more thrilling stories, Put Yourself in His Place and others, which aimed vigorous blows at some social injustice, as well as The Cloister and the Hearth, which made the Middle Ages live again. In the 'eighties appeared Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, which soon won the popular ear.
