Description

The sequel to Alice in Wonderland. Step through the Looking-glass into a topsy-turvy, magical world in this gloriously illustrated picture book re-telling of Lewis Carroll's enduring classic, from the highly-regarded, prize-winning illustrator of Blue Kangaroo and Melrose and Croc. A luxurious gift book that no child's library should be without! In this magnificent sequel to Alice in Wonderland, Alice walks through a mirror straight into the back-to-front Looking-glass Kingdom. There she meets a collection of even 'curiouser' characters than before; the walrus and the carpenter, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the White Knight and the Red Queen, to name but a few. But nothing is quite what it seems...

Reviews

Praise for 'Alice in Wonderland': "This is a real Alice for the present day, but nonetheless one it is easy to image living the extraordinary adventure Lewis Carroll wrote for her." Quentin Blake "Emma Chichester Clark's intelligent update of Alice in Wonderland makes it more accessible and less frightening than Lewis Carroll's original, complete with John Tenniel's dark, prickly Victorian pictures. Girls of 5+ should enjoy it." Amanda Craig, The Times
