Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1872) is a work of children's literature by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge... Dodgson), generally categorized as fairy tale. 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, (May 4), 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) read more

Lewis Carroll's stories of Alice have entranced children - and grown-ups - for nearly 150 years. And more than one reader, turning... the last page of "Through the Looking-Glass", must have been saddened by the thought that her adventures had well and truly come to an end. Not so! Setting himself the daily task of believing "as many as six impossible things before breakfast" (or at least before lunch), Gilbert Adair has written a delightful successor to Carroll's two immortal fantasies. Here, with the aid of Jenny Thorne's Tenniel-inspired illustrations, you will find characters as nonsensical as any ever encountered by Alice. The Siamese-Twin Cats joined at the tail, the kindly old Grampus and its Auto-Biography, the Welsh Rabbit with its toasted cheese and Worcestershire Sauce and many, many, more. And perhaps you too will gradually discover, as Alice does, the mysterious pattern which shapes the destiny of her dream. "Alice Through the Needle's Eye" is both a literary tour de force and an enchantingly funny tail for children of, as they say, all ages. read more
Published first in 1900, Florence A. Evans' "Alice's Adventures in Pictureland" is told about a young girl named Alice, whose moth...er's younger sister was the famous Alice of Lewis Carroll's Wonderland. The book, illustrated with delightful drawings by Albertine Randall Wheelan, begins with a set of vignettes exploring the exploits of a number of Wonderland characters, and continues with a series of tales told by story-book animals, some of which are reminiscent of Rudyard Kipling's "Just-So Stories". read more
Lewis Carroll conjured up Alice in Wonderland one afternoon in 1862 to entertain young Alice Liddell, the daughter of the local ch...urch dean. A century and a half later, the original Alice and its sequel, Through the Looking Glass, are still entertaining children and adults alike. Full of nonsense and whimsical characters, sparkling word play, puzzles, and riddles, these books also offer poignant moments of nostalgia for lost childhood. Although he published many books in a variety of genres, Carroll will always be best known for these two childhood classics.In Alice in Wonderland, the young Alice falls asleep in a meadow and dreams that she follows a White Rabbit down a rabbit hole. She has many wondrous, often bizarre adventures with thoroughly illogical and very strange creatures. Often changing size unexpectedly (she grows as tall as a house and shrinks to three inches), Alice encounters such characters as the March Hare, the Cheshire Cat, the Duchess, the Mad Hatter, the Mock Turtle, and the Red Queen.In Through the Looking Glass, Alice, now slightly older, walks through a mirror into the Looking-Glass House and immediately becomes involved in a strange game of chess. Soon, she is exploring the rest of the house, meeting a sequence of characters now familiar to most: Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Red Queen, Humpty Dumpty, and the Walrus, just to name a few. The popular and linguistically playful poem "Jabberwocky" is also featured in Through the Looking Glass. read more
This title is suitable for children aged 7 years and up. Nothing's more magical than going down the rabbit hole and through the lo...oking glass with Alice.

Children will love reading Carroll's many humorous nonsense verses and meeting such unforgettable characters as the Mad Hatter, the Knave of Hearts who steals some tarts, and the grinning Cheshire Cat (in Alice in Wonderland) and Tweedledee, Tweedledum, Humpty Dumpty and the Jabberwock (in Through the Looking Glass). read more
