well, here's a little extra to spice THIS egg up a bit... queen Victoria (was it her? anyway, whoever reigned at that time) found the book Alice in Wonderland quite amusing, and asked for his other works. He sent her a math book. She was not amused.

There are quite a few people out there who do know about the whole Carroll/mathematics influence of Alice in Wonderland, but there also are people who don't. That is the reason why these eggs have been submitted. Just because you know about it doesn't mean that everyone else does as well.

Look, C'mon! I didn't know anything about the author when i read it (and still dont!)so this is an easter egg to me, and there are probably lots of people out there like me, who think this is a good easter egg.Just 'cos you people know all about the author, doesn't mean everyone else does! I think this a very neat little easter egg!

LSD does wonders. just look at Stephen King's books from the 60's and 70's. In my opinion they're the best. Look at The Beatles. You cant tell me they were clean while making Magical Mystery Tour and Srg. Pepper's. Just add a little clear liquid and creativity booms.

I agree. I give this egg a zero also. Tizzinatrix makes a good point about how this "egg" really isn't one. As a Carroll/Dodgson fan, I knew about this before I even read the books.
