More than 70 original illustrations by Robert Ingpen complement the complete and unabridged text in this edition published to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll's first Alice book in November 1865

When Alice steps through the looking-glass in the drawing room one drowsy winter afternoon, she finds herself in a peculiar, topsy-turvy world where chess pieces walk about, flowers talk, and nothing is quite as it seems. Alice is caught up in a bizarre chess game and encounters some rather eccentric characters—including the argumentative Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the Lion and the Unicorn, the nonsensical White Queen, and the quick-tempered Red Queen. The story features the poems, “The Walrus and the Carpenter” and “Jabberwocky," which have become just as well known as Alice’s adventures themselves. The award-winning artist Robert Ingpen has illustrated Lewis Carroll’s enchanting sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in this sumptuous volume. Full of anarchic humour, witty rhymes, and sparkling word play, it will delight new readers and devoted Alice fans alike.

From the Back Cover:

This 1872 sequel to Lewis Carroll's beloved Alice's Adventures in Wonderland finds the inquisitive heroine in a fantastic land where everything is reversed. Looking-glass land, a topsy-turvy world lurking just behind the mirror over Alice's mantel, is a fantastic realm of live chessmen, madcap kings and queens, strange mythological creatures, talking flowers and puddings, and rude insects.
Brooks and hedges divide the lush greenery of looking-glass land into a chessboard, where Alice becomes a pawn in a bizarre game of chess involving Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Lion and the Unicorn, the White Knight, and other nursery-rhyme figures. Promised a crown when she reaches the eighth square, Alice perseveres through a surreal landscape of amusing characters that pelt her with riddles and humorous semantic quibbles and regale her with memorable poetry, including the oft-quoted "Jabberwocky."

About the Author:

Lewis Carroll was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), born in Cheshire, England, who became a lecturer in Mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford. In 1862, on a boating picnic, Carroll made up a story to tell a group of children, among them the eleven-year-old daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, Alice Liddell. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was published three years later and became a publishing sensation, beloved by children and adults alike. Carroll soon began to work on another book featuring his inquisitive young heroine and based on the idea of a chess game. Alice Through the Looking-Glass was published in 1871. Robert Ingpen has designed, illustrated, and written more than 100 published works of fiction and nonfiction, among them The Jungle Book and the centenary edition of Peter Pan and Wendy. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children's literature.
