March 31, 2009 - PRLog -- author Robert Batey tells the fascinating story of the girl and her hatter, and how their real-life experiences inspired Lewis Carroll to write his literary masterpiece.

The majority of people do not know that the Alice of Alice in Wonderland was written around a real person, namely an Alice Liddell. Even less known, she had a real life “hatter” to turn to, a north-east English character called Coffee Johnny. Alice met Coffee Johnny when she was a mere child and, despite their cultural and 23 age difference, they had an immediate affinity for one another which lasted their life times.

Under His Hat exposes the real and unknown story of Alice and Coffee Johnny: how he, as an under-privileged orphan, became a local hero and how his life-long relationship with the Liddell family developed and extended to his becoming Alice’s protector and adviser. The book reveals unknown details of Alice’s futile romance with Prince Leopold, and how Johnny was able to provide wise council during her first heartbreak. It tells of Johnny always appearing from seemingly nowhere to rescue the accident-prone Alice from disaster, including putting his own life at stake to save her from certain death in a quagmire. Finally, it reveals the astonishing discovery they both make, which raises the curtain dkxwr on a cover-up that has lasted for over a century.
