Through the Looking-Glass Thrift Edition
And What Alice Found There is the subtitle to this charming sequel to Lewis Carroll's infamous Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Once again, the heroine Alice finds herself in a fantastic world after she ventures through the looking glass over the mantel in the drawing-room. In this strange and exciting looking-glass land, everything is reversed and the scenery is a larger-than-life chess game full of live chessmen, kings and queens, and strange mythological creatures. Before Alice knows it, she has become a pawn in a bizarre game of chess, along with famous nursery rhyme figures such as Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and the White Knight. Try every chess move for yourself as the book goes along (a handy diagram is included for the chess-challenged, such as myself). This unabridged, paperback edition is a delightful tale for children of all ages. This whimsical fantasy contains memorable poetry, including the often quoted "Jabberwocky," along with fifty black-and-white original illustrations by John Tenniel. Together, they help to make this cherished story come to life right in your hands. - elise
Lewis Carroll invites you to go with Alice down the rabbit hole. Follow the white rabbit as he's in a hurry for the queen's game of croquet, recite Old Father William with the mushroom-perching caterpillar, find out why the mock turtle is so full of sorrow, and attend a mad tea party. Wonderland is a fantasy world of nonsense, overflowing with contradiction and absurdity. Read how Alice manages to discover her identity and shrink and grow while she struggles to make sense of her kooky environment. Contains original illustrations by John Tenniel. Both versions are unabridged, but the design and layout of the Evergreen Classic edition is more appealing to younger readers.
