* 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.

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.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Citation needed, but he released ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' at the same time as a book of his on mathematical theory. 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.
** This story, though entertaining, is sadly apocryphal. Dodgson was asked about it and said that though he wished it had happened, it did not.
* FriendToAllChildren: Especially the ''real'' Alice.
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gertrude_Chataway Gertrude Chataway]] was also a close friend.
* HeAlsoDid: Aside from his work in mathematics, he was also an Anglican deacon and in his time, a well-known photographer.
