* FriendToAllChildren: He loved to be around and entertain children, especially the real Alice Liddell, though the myths surrounding his life tend to overstate this. He had many adult friends as well.
** Slightly averted in that he was very much more fond of small girls than of small boys.

* LiteralGenie: A popular myth is that when ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' was published at the same time as a book of his on mathematical theory, UsefulNotes/QueenVictoria was so charmed by ''Alice'' that she requested Carroll to send her a copy of his next book immediately after it is published. A short time later he sent her "An Elementary Treatise on Determinants : With Their Application to Simultaneous Linear Equations and Algebraical Geometry", hot off the presses. This alas, is not true.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: A popular myth is that when ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' was published at the same time as a book of his on mathematical theory, UsefulNotes/QueenVictoria was so charmed by ''Alice'' that she requested Carroll produce another book like his latest. A short time later he sent her a new math textbook, hot off the presses. When Carroll heard the story, he said that he wished it had happened.

-->''Postscript to '''Symbolic Logic''': I take this opportunity of giving what publicity I can to my contradiction of a silly story, which has been going the round of the papers, about my having presented certain books to Her Majesty the Queen. It is so constantly repeated, and is such absolute fiction, that I think it worth while to state, once for all, that it is utterly false in every particular: nothing even resembling it has occurred.''

* SillySpook: The nameless ghost in [[http://www.gutenberg.org/files/651/651-h/651-h.htm "Phantasmagoria"]] is a bit of a goof with a taste for awful puns. He also mooches food and drink off the narrator.
