Overview

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass (Barnes & Noble Signature Editions) by Kristine Moruzi, John Tenniel, Lewis Carroll

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.

Anne is probably one of the strangest children you will ever meet. She is twisted, ruthless, cunning, and incredibly witty and smart. Her mind is chaotic and psychotic, which suprised her parents greatly. You see, Anne is the great age of ficpve years old. At age thirteen months, she had already learned to walk. And talk. And read. Anne's brain moved quicker than anyone else she knew. In fact, her parents took advantage of that, and posibly drove her a tad bit insane... <br> <br> Anne was always quite the beauty. With long, curly, blonde locks that fell to her feet; bright turquoise eyes; and full pink lips; it wasn't hard to see why. On most days, her hair was tied into pigtails with dark green ribbon. Her favourite dress had short sleeves, just making it past her shoulders. The dress itself, was made out of silk. The skirt was tattered; it was full, ending at about her knees. It was a light, flowy white, silk, the over coat being torn green velevet. It closed at the waist neatly, with a belt buckle. Anne wore no shoes, prefering to go barefoot. <br> <br> Her favourite accessories included a battered dall, whoes dress looked like it had been stained with blood. If parted from that doll, a dangerous fit would be thrown. In her belt resides an ebony dagger, stained with blood.

Deyanira is a troublesome girl with a dark and devious mind. Her first name, meaning "capable of destruction," describes her in the most fitting of ways. Ever since she was little, she has been suffering through delusions of grandeur, swift personality changes, and dark-featured imaginary friends. Now fourteen-years-old, Deyanira has made a few terrible decisions .. <br> Which all led to her becoming more and more interested in the girl she knows to be named Alice. <br> Her outfits change as much as her personality, and that is saying something. Her most favourite dress reaches down to just above her knees with a full, child-like skirt. The sleeves are elegant and bell-shaped, giving a slight rise to her shoulders. A slit up the side of her skirt, which exposes a white ruffled petticoat, ends in a messily tied bow at her hip. She always wears a corset, often ripped, to show off her already naturally small waist. The dress matches the colour of glorious, freshly-drawn blood. <br> Deyanira takes pride in her accessories. Among her most worn and used? A crooked, frayed tophat that has chunks taken out of the brim, a lacy parasol, fishnet gloves that are typically ripped, and a black choker with her family crest. <br> Her eyes are a striking shade of blue; wide, innocent, and darkly-lashed. Blonde hair cascades down her back in choppy strands. Looks don't matter much to her, but she will use them to her advantage. <br> There is something about Deyanira that she would never share with a single soul. Perhaps it is where she is from, what she has done, or the things that haunt her jaded mind.
