How did Alice end up at Sítio do Picapau Amarelo? (Portuguese)

Alice arrived in Brazil through Monteiro Lobato’s portal. It was he who made the first Brazilian translation and adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, with illustrations by A. L. Bowley, in the same year (1931) that As Reinações de Narizinho came out, with illustrations by Jean Villin. Two years later, Looking-Glass, with illustrations by John Tenniel, would also be published by Companhia Editora Nacional, translated and adapted by Lobato.
