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...
