9781447273097: Through the Looking-Glass (Macmillan Classics)

Alice's second adventure takes her through the looking glass to a place even curiouser than Wonderland, in this gorgeous hardback gift edition

Alice finds herself caught up in the great looking glass chess game and sets off to become a queen. It isn't as easy as she expects: at every step she is hindered by nonsense characters who crop up and insist on reciting poems. Some of these poems, such as "The Walrus and the Carpenter" and "Jabberwocky," are as famous as the Alice stories themselves. Gloriously illustrated with the original line drawings by John Tenniel, plates colored by John Macfarlane, a ribbon marker, and a foreword by Philip Ardagh, this beautiful hardback edition of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass, which was first published by Macmillan in 1871, is a truly special gift to treasure.

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. Born in 1832, Dodgson was a mathematics tutor at Christ Church College, Oxford, where he met Alice Liddell, daughter of the dean, and inspiration for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The book and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, have delighted children all over the world for 150 years. Philip Ardagh is the author of the bestselling Eddie Dickens children's novels, which include A House Called Awful End and have now been translated into more than 30 languages. He won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2009.
