Continuing Alice's adventures, Alice Through the Looking Glass sees her walking through a mirror into a topsy-turvy world. There she meets a host of bizarre characters, including Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty and the Red Queen. But is it all a dream? Delightfully illustrated for a new generation by the award-winning Helen Oxenbury.
