When you look at fine connections, it's hard to say exactly what relation "Alice in Wonderland" has to this book, "Through the Looking-Glass," Oh, it's plainly the same girl, though she seems older, here, and some characters (like Tweedledum and Tweedledee) appear in both. But she doesn't get there the same way, and doesn't refer to her adventures in Wonderland so much as once. Oh well: maybe it's all a dream and she can't remember the last one -- or maybe the magic through the Looking-Glass has hold of her, just as it has hold of Humpty Dumpty, or the Walrus and the Carpenter.
An abridged version of the stories that tell of Alice, who falls down a rabbit hole and steps through a mirror, thereby experiencing unusual adventures with a variety of nonsensical characters.

Lewis Carroll's stories about Alice's misadventures in a secret world are some of his best-loved works.

Including ALICE IN WONDERLAND and THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, this two-book set is ideal for readers looking to lose themselves in Wonderland.
This edition contains Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking Glass. It is illustrated throughout by Sir John Tenniel, whose drawings for the books add so much to the enjoyment of them. Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Red Queen and the White Rabbit all make their appearances, and are now familiar figures in writing, conversation and idiom. So too, are Carroll's delightful verses such as 'The Walrus and the Carpenter' and the inspired jargon of that masterly Wordsworthian parody, 'The Jabberwocky'.
A shortened, simplified version of the tale in which a little girl falls down a rabbit hole and discovers a world of nonsensical and amusing characters.
Welcome to the magical world of Wonderland! A stunning eBook edition of the all-time classic, brought to you by Simon & Schuster. Alice is sitting on the edge of a riverbank when she spots a white rabbit in a waistcoat disappearing down a hole. Before long, she finds herself jumping down the rabbit-hole after it, and entering a world unlike any other. Here Alice drinks unknown liquids that shrink her in size and she eats mushrooms that make her gigantic. She encounters a caterpillar who smokes and a dormouse who scolds her, and she morphs into a seven-year-old Queen after winning a game of chess. Of all the daydreams documented in literary history, Alice's is the most outrageous, affecting, imaginative and powerful.

A little girl falls down a rabbit hole and discovers a world of nonsensical and amusing characters.
Alice Through the Looking-Glass was originally commissioned by Stratford Festival Foundation under the artistic directorship of David William. The play opened July 10, 1994 at the Avon Theatre. This edition also contains illustrations by Sir John Tenniel as they appeared in the original (1872) Macmillan edition of Through the Looking-Glass and what Alice found there. When Alice passes through into the Looking Glass World, she suddenly finds herself in a bizarre and chaotic chess game that leads her on an unforgettable adventure. She encounters a dizzying array of extraordinary characters that include talking flowers, Kings and Queens, Tweedledee and Tweedledum and Humpty Dumpty himself. This brand new stage adaptation by one of Canada's most beloved authors and playwrights was a feature production of the 1994 Stratford Festival season. In addition to the text of the play, James Reaney provides the reader with background information and notes as well as useful suggestions for those wishing to stage their own production of Lewis Carroll's classic tale.
Alice is bored at home, but not for long—suddenly, she finds she can step through her mirror into a fantastical world where everything is backwards. From insulting flowers to giant insects to the nonsensical Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Alice's confusing journey through the world of Looking-Glass House is anything but easy. Is it all really just a dream, or could it be something more than that? Featuring the infamous poem "Jabberwocky," this is the unabridged version of Lewis Carroll's sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It was first published in the UK in 1871.
