Book Overview
Lewis Carroll wrote 'Alice through the Looking Glass' in 1871, five years after his more famous 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'. Partaking of the same surreal and dream-like quality, the book tells the story of Alice's magical trip through her living room mirror and the eccentric army of comic characters she finds on the other side. Illustrated with 50 wonderful original drawings by Sir John Tenniel. An all-time favourite with children of all ages, adults may discern deeper layers of meaning contained in the book- some believe that Lewis Carroll left a code within 'Alice through the Looking Glass' that links - by way of the chess set and six brooks mentioned in the story - with Carroll's favourite number, the mysterious '42'.
