Ken Campbell, Windsor Davies, John Bird, and John Fortune star in this BBC Radio full-cast dramatization. When Alice's wish to visit the Looking Glass world comes true, she can't resist delving deeper and deeper into a land of caustic characters and twisted logic. So begins a game of chess on a grand scale, where the inhabitants of each square have their own set of rules. In her bid to become Queen of the Chess Board, Alice takes advice from such peculiar folk as Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Lion and the Unicorn, and a very helpful gnat.

LEWIS CARROLL's real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. He was born on January 27, 1832 at Daresbury in Cheshire. He studied at Christ Church, Oxford University and later became a mathematics lecturer there. He wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1872) for the daughters of the Dean of Christ Church. He was very fond of puzzles and some readers have found mathematical jokes and codes hidden in his Alice books. His other works include Phantasmagoria and Other Poems (1869), The Hunting of the Snark (1876), Rhyme? And Reason? (1882), The Game of Logic (1887) and Sylvie and Bruno (1889, 1893).

This is better than the movie the auther did a wonderful job
Honestly, I am not sure I got the story!I loved the crazy writing but the story was so confusing. It felt like a lot of short stories linked together with some random element,It is a poor relation of alice in wonderland (which I loved).
