Overview

Alice sees things that other people miss. Sitting on a riverbank with her sister, she watches a white rabbit run past, wearing clothes and checking a pocket watch. Following the rabbit down its hole, she drops into a fantastic world where she grows and shrinks in an instant, her tears cause a major flood, and caterpillars give sage advice. Soon she is taking directions from the Cheshire Cat, attending a tea party with the March Hare and the Mad Hatter, and playing croquet with a deck of cards.  

     Six months later—sitting by a cozy fire, her adventures over—Alice wonders what life is like on the other side of the mirror above the fireplace. Without a second thought, she climbs up the mantel and steps into a world where people move about in paintings on the wall and chessmen stroll arm in arm around the room. The human-size Red Queen explains that the surrounding countryside is a giant chessboard and that Alice can become a queen by traveling to the eighth row. On her new adventure, Alice encounters Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Humpty Dumpty, a Queen who turns into a talking sheep, and many more bizarre characters.

     Filled with intriguing logic problems, dizzying word play, and delightful distortions of cause and effect, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass are glorious romps through alternate realities where nonsense is deep and meaningful, perception can’t be trusted, and a little girl’s fantasies can charm and challenge even the keenest of adult minds.
