It all begins when Alice wonders what's on the other side of the mirror, and is actually able to pass on through to the other side. Along the way she encounters talking flowers and such unforgettable characters as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Lion and the Unicorn, and Humpty-Dumpty, while somehow becoming the White Queen in a surreal chess match against the Red Queen. All the inspired lunacy of Lewis Carroll's classic book comes alive in this beautiful graphic novel.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Kyle Baker’s adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass blends familiar poems (“Jabberwocky”) with the protagonist’s loquacious first-person narrative and crisply colored, almost stylized illustrations"-School Library Journal

"Baker’s loose art style reflects the mood of this world, and his characters are drawn with great expression"-Kim T. Ha, Elkridge Branch Library, MD, School Library Journal

School Library Journal

Gr 5 Up

This is an admirable attempt at adapting a classic into a graphic novel, but it works better as a supplemental or introductory piece. Baker tries to remain true to the original work by leaving the dialogue mainly intact, though the transitional writing that he removes tends to cause confusion, especially in Carroll's world of fancy, imagination, and nonsense. Baker also has made a stylistic choice to eschew word bubbles; dialogue is instead placed under panels and directly under images of characters to which they belong. This takes some getting used to, even for seasoned graphic-novel readers. Baker's loose art style reflects the mood of this world, and his characters are drawn with great expression. However, small panel size and crowded layouts detract from appreciation of the art and comprehension of the story. A note at the end directs readers to borrow the original work from their school or public library, which is a valid suggestion in order to understand and appreciate Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass fully.-Kim T. Ha, Elkridge Branch Library, MD
