In Part 2, Alice is playing with her kittens-a black kitten and a white kitten, the offspring of Dinah, Alice's cat in the first book-when she ponders what the world is like on the other side of a mirror (the reflected scene displayed on its surface), and to her surprise, is able to pass through to experience the alternate world. There, she discovers a book with looking-glass poetry, "Jabberwocky", which she can read only by holding it up to a mirror. Upon leaving the house, she enters a garden, where the flowers speak to her and mistake her for a flower. There, Alice also meets the Red Queen, who offers a throne to Alice if she moves to the eighth rank in a chess match. Alice is placed as the White Queen's pawn, and begins the game by taking a train to the fourth rank, acting on the rule that pawns in chess can move two spaces on their first move

About the Author:

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (January 27, 1832 – January 14, 1898), better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman, and photographer. His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense. His facility at word play, logic, and fantasy has delighted audiences ranging from children to the literary elite. But beyond this, his work has become embedded deeply in modern culture. He has directly influenced many artists. There are societies dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of his works and the investigation of his life in many parts of the world including North America, Japan, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand. His biography has recently come under much question as a result of what some call the "Carroll Myth."

From AudioFile:

With this work Lewis Carroll delivered a sequel to his best-known work, the classic adventures of ALICE IN WONDERLAND. Similarities abound between the two tales. However, similarities aside, this story gets star treatment with renowned fantasy and science-fiction author Harlan Ellison serving as narrator. Ellison's jaunty reading provides just the right mix of whimsy and awe for the story's rhymes and clever characters. The pleasure is infectious. Children listening to the bizarre adventures will find plenty to enjoy. M.T. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
