Alice In Wonderland stamps celebrate 150th anniversary

Royal Mail have launched a special collection of stamps to celebrate 150 years since the classic book Alice In Wonderland was published.
It has been 150 years since Charles Lutwidge Dodgson - better known as Lewis Carroll - first told this classic tale to entertain a group of children on a boat trip in 1862. The book has become one of the all-time great children's books.
