    Publishing status: R/PRINT UND CONSIDERATION

    When Alice steps through the looking-glass in the drawing room one snowy, drowsy afternoon, she finds herself in a peculiar, topsy-turvy world where chess pieces walk about, flowers talk and nothing is quite as it seems. Alice is caught up in a bizarre chess game and encounters some rather eccentric characters, both new and familiar - including the argumentative Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the Lion and the Unicorn, the nonsensical White Queen and the quick-tempered Red Queen.

    The story features the poems, "The Walrus and the Carpenter" and "Jabberwocky", which have become just as well known as Alice's adventures themselves.

    To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll's first Alice book, the award-winning illustrator Robert Ingpen has illustrated its enchanting sequel in this sumptuous volume. Full of anarchic humour, witty rhymes and sparkling word play, it will delight new readers and devoted Alice fans alike.
