Written by Lewis Carroll
Part of the Walker Illustrated Classics SeriesWrite A Review
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. Helen Oxenbury’s illustrations capture the madness and magic of this classic, which is beautifully published as one of Walker’s Classic titles.
This title is part of the Walker Illustrated Classics, a series which brings together some of the best-loved stories ever told, illustrated by some of today's finest artists. These exquisitely designed books, with their magnificent words and glorious pictures, are a pleasure to read - and re-read. The classics have never looked so good.
