The Lovereading4Kids comment

A favourite book chosen by Philip Pullman, along with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: "Indispensable. The great classic beginning of English children's literature".

Stepping through the Looking Glass, Alice enters a second wonderful adventure. Here she meets the White Queen and the scarily loud Red Queen, the famous twins Tweedledum and Tweedledee and the tearful Walrus and the Carpenter.

Synopsis

Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll, Chris Riddell

When Alice steps through the looking-glass, she enters a very strange world of chess pieces and nursery rhyme characters such as Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and the angry Red Queen. Nothing is what it seems and, in fact, through the looking-glass, everything is distorted.

About the Author

Lewis Carroll, born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-98), grew up in Cheshire in the village of Daresbury, the son of a parish priest. He was a brilliant mathematician, a skilled photographer and a meticulous letter and diary writer. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, inspired by Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church in Oxford, was published in 1865, followed by Through the Looking-Glass in 1867. He wrote numerous stories and poems for children including the nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark and fairy stories Sylvie and Bruno.
