One snowy winters afternoon, Alice climbs through the mirror above her drawing-room fireplace, into a back- to-front, topsy-turvy world where flowers talk, chess pieces walk and the faster you run, the more you end up in the same place. As she wanders through this strange, astonishing land, Alice encounters a host Of favourite childhood characters, each clamouring to be rediscovered and given new life by award-winning illustrator Helen Oxenhury. Wonder at Tweedledum and liveedledee, laugh at the Walrus and the Carpenter, cower from the Lion and the Unicorn, ponder the Jabberwock, and beware the proud Humpty Dumpty and snappish Red Queen.

Marvellous story or meaningful text, Alice Through the Looking-Glass has long captivated readers of all ages, Satirical, witty and irreverent, it pokes fun at authority and mocks traditional education in a way that appeals to children 01 any era.

Work Description

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) is a work of children's literature by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), generally categorized in the fairy tale genre. It is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). Although it makes no reference to the events in the earlier book, the themes and settings of Through the Looking-Glass make it a kind of mirror image of Wonderland: the first book begins outdoors, in the warm month of May, uses frequent changes in size as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of playing cards; the second opens indoors on a snowy, wintry night exactly six months later, on November 4 (the day before Guy Fawkes Night), uses frequent changes in time and spatial directions as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of chess. In it, there are many mirror themes, including opposites, time running backwards, and so on. (Wikipedia)
