“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. ‘Which road do I take?’ she asked. ‘Where do you want to go?’ was his response. ‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered. ‘Then,’ said the cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.” Celebrate the genius of Lewis Carroll with this picture of the Cheshire Cat from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, either appearing or disappearing in a tree. The illustration is by Sir John Tenniel and was originally published in London in 1890. Shelfmark: Cup.410.g.74.
