Alice is playing with a white kitten (whom she calls "Snowdrop") and a black kitten (whom she calls "Kitty")—the offspring of Dinah, Alice's cat in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland—when she ponders what the world is like on the other side of a mirror's reflection. Climbing up on the fireplace mantel, she pokes at the wall-hung mirror behind the fireplace and discovers, to her surprise, that she is able to step through it to an alternative world. In this reflected version of her own house, she finds a book with looking-glass poetry, "Jabberwocky", whose reversed printing she can read only by holding it up to the mirror. She also observes that the chess-pieces have come to life, though they remain small enough for her to pick up.

Upon leaving the house (where it had been a cold, snowy night), she enters a sunny spring garden where the flowers have the power of human speech; they perceive Alice as being a "flower that can move about." Elsewhere in the garden, Alice meets the Red Queen (now human-sized), who impresses Alice with her ability to run at breathtaking speeds—a reference to the chess rule that queens are able to move up to seven spaces at once, and in any direction, making them the most "agile" of the pieces. The Red Queen reveals to Alice that the entire countryside is laid out in squares like a gigantic chessboard, and offers to make Alice a queen if she can move all the way to the eighth rank/row in a chess match

Why purchase this book for a couple of dollars when there is a free version? It is exactly the same.

Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Carroll does not fail in this absurd romp through Looking-Glass Land. The story is full of the Topsy-turvey dialog that made Wonderland a classic. A fun read!

I loved this book because it isn't really suposed to make a lot of sense. This is a good choice for you if you like amazing creatures and nonsensical poetry. Overall I think this book is beautifly written, well illustrated, and a classic!

I never get tired of the nonsensical characters and language. I love the language and the world. Fun and whimsical.

It seems a little piontless to even try reading. It's just a run-on from the original, which still wasn't very good.
