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!
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...

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

'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
