About this title:

Synopsis: Alice has become one of the great characters of imaginative literature, as immortal as Don Quixote, Huckleberry Finn, or Dorothy Gale. Her adventures appeal to adults as well as children because they can be read on many levels: a satire on language, a political allegory, or a parody of Victorian children's literature. The short film "The Delivery" on DVD is a journey into the fantastical world of auditory imagination. Reader: Michael York is a well-known actor who has starred in numerous films, including The Three Musketeers and the Austin Powers box-office hits. Reader: Harlan Ellison is an AudieŽ Award-winning narrator and a multiple award-winning author of speculative fiction.

Review: That Alice. When she's not traipsing after a rabbit into Wonderland, she's gallivanting off into the topsy-turvy world behind the drawing-room looking glass. In Through the Looking Glass, Lewis Carroll's masterful and zany sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, she makes more eccentric acquaintances, including Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the White Queen, and a somewhat grumpy Humpty Dumpty. Through a giant and elaborate chess game, Alice explores this odd country, where one must eat dry biscuits to quench thirst, and run like the wind to stay in one place. As in life, Alice must stay on her toes to learn the rules of this game. Through the Looking Glass immediately took its rightful place beside its partner on the shelf of eternal classics. And luckily for generations of enraptured children, Carroll was again able to persuade John Tenniel to create the fantastic woodblock engravings that have become so indelibly associated with the Alice stories. For almost 130 years, Alice's curious adventures have amused, perplexed, and delighted readers, young and old. This gorgeous, deluxe boxed set of both volumes contains engravings from Tenniel's original woodblocks that were discovered in a London bank in 1985, and reproduced for the first time here. "'What is the use of a book,' thought Alice, 'without pictures?'" What indeed? (All ages)

Book Description Blackstone Audiobooks, United States, 2008. CD-Audio. Condition: New. Unabridged. Language: English . Brand New. Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass Lewis Carroll s enduring tale begins with Alice chasing the White Rabbit down a rabbit hole, where she encounters delightfully eccentric characters like the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and the Queen of Hearts. Many view the story as a tale about the trials and tribulations of growing up, as seen through the expert eyes of a child. The book s sequel, Through the Looking Glass, finds Alice in a fantastic land where everything is reversed. While the first book has the deck of cards as a theme, this book is loosely based on a game of chess played on a giant chessboard. Alice encounters madcap kings and queens and strange mythological characters when she becomes a pawn in a chess game involving nursery-rhyme characters. Throughout her fantastic journeys, Alice retains her reason, humor, and sense of justice.Harlan Ellison was a 2009 Grammy nominee for Best Spoken World Album for his performance in Through the Looking Glass. Those purchasing the retail CD will also receive a DVD with the short film The Delivery. Seller Inventory # AAS9781433255700
