Book Overview
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass Lewis Carroll's enduring tale begins with Alice chasing the White Rabbit down a rabbit hole, where she encounters delightfully eccentric characters like the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and the Queen of Hearts. Many view the story as a tale about the trials and tribulations of growing up, as seen through the expert eyes of a child. The book's sequel, Through the Looking Glass, finds Alice in a fantastic land where everything is reversed. While the first book has the deck of cards as a theme, this book is loosely based on a game of chess played on a giant chessboard. Alice encounters madcap kings and queens and strange mythological characters when she becomes a pawn in a chess game involving nursery-rhyme characters. Throughout her fantastic journeys, Alice retains her reason, humor, and sense of justice.Harlan Ellison was a 2009 Grammy nominee for Best Spoken World Album for his performance in Through the Looking Glass.
