The Lovereading4Kids comment

Lewis Carroll's enduring classic tale, which has enchanted readers of all ages for more than a hundred years, is brought alive for a new generation in this exquisite picture book by the highly-regarded illustrator Emma Chichester Clark. She has carefully retold the story of Alice Through the Looking Glass as a sequel to her interpretation of Alice in Wonderland bringing Lewis Carroll's story alive through both text and illustration. Step through the looking glass into a topsy-turvy, magical world. A luxurious Gift Book that no child's library should be without!

Synopsis

Alice Through the Looking Glass by Emma Chichester Clark

Alice walks through a mirror straight into the back-to-front Looking-glass Kingdom. There she meets a collection of even 'curiouser' characters than before; the walrus and the carpenter, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the White Knight and the Red Queen, to name but a few. But nothing is quite what it seems...

Reviews

Praise for 'Alice in Wonderland':

This is a real Alice for the present day, but nonetheless one it is easy to imagine living the extraordinary adventure Lewis Carroll wrote for her. Quentin Blake

Emma Chichester Clark's intelligent update of Alice in Wonderland makes it more accessible and less frightening than Lewis Carroll's original, complete with John Tenniel's dark, prickly Victorian pictures. Girls of 5+ should enjoy it. Amanda Craig, The Times

Praise for 'Melrose and Croc':

'Full of bright detail, this is a picture book young readers could well dream about as being the next best thing to entering its pages. The Independent

About the Author

Emma Chichester Clark

Emma Chichester Clark studied at the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art, where she was taught by Quentin Blake. She has worked as a freelance illustrator for various magazines including New Scientist, Cosmopolitan and The Sunday Times, for publishers and advertising agencies as well as teaching art for several years, and has also illustrated numerous book jackets.

In 1988 she won the Mother Goose Award for her first book, Listen to This!, an anthology compiled by Laura Cecil. She also won the Kate Greenaway medal in 1988. Since then, she has become internationally known, illustrating writers such as Roald Dahl, Peter Dickinson, Anne Fine and Margaret Mahy. Emma was the first winner of the newly created Grinzane Junior Award for I Love you, Blue Kangaroo.

Emma was born in London but raised in Ireland. She started drawing "just about as soon as I could hold a pencil. But I could never find enough paper and my mother wouldn't let me use her Basildon Bond. So secretly I used to tear the blank pages out of her grown-up books and draw on them and make my own little books."
