That Alice. When she's not traipsing after a rabbit into Wonderland, she's gallivanting off into the topsy-turvy world behind the drawing-room looking glass. In Through the Looking Glass, Lewis Carroll's masterful and zany sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, she makes more eccentric acquaintances, including Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the White Queen, and a somewhat grumpy Humpty Dumpty. Through a giant and elaborate chess game, Alice explores this odd country, where one must eat dry biscuits to quench thirst, and run like the wind to stay in one place. As in life, Alice must stay on her toes to learn the rules of this game. Through the Looking Glass immediately took its rightful place beside its partner on the shelf of eternal classics. And luckily for generations of enraptured children, Carroll was again able to persuade John Tenniel to create the fantastic woodblock engravings that have become so indelibly associated with the Alice stories. For almost 130 years, Alice's curious adventures have amused, perplexed, and delighted readers, young and old. This gorgeous, deluxe boxed set of both volumes contains engravings from Tenniel's original woodblocks that were discovered in a London bank in 1985, and reproduced for the first time here. "'What is the use of a book,' thought Alice, 'without pictures?'" What indeed? (All ages) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was a man of diverse interests - in mathematics, logic, photgraphy, art, theater, religion, medicine, and science. He was happiest in the company of children for whom he created puzzles, clever games, and charming letters.

As all Carroll admirers know, his book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), became an immediate success and has since been translated into more than eighty languages. The equally popular sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872.

The Alice books are but one example of his wide ranging authorship. The Hunting of the Snark, a classic nonsense epic (1876) and Euclid and His Modern Rivals, a rare example of humorous work concerning mathematics, still entice and intrigue today's students. Sylvie and Bruno, published toward the end of his life contains startling ideas including an 1889 description of weightlessness.

The humor, sparkling wit and genius of this Victorian Englishman have lasted for more than a century. His books are among the most quoted works in the English language, and his influence (with that of his illustrator, Sir John Tenniel) can be seen everywhere, from the world of advertising to that of atomic physics.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Magnificent Alice
By Sandy Shaller on November 9, 2020
I started my love affair with Alice and Lewis Carroll's brilliant use of language when I was seven years old and my dad gave me my first copy of the books (I still have that copy, dad.). Through the years, I've aquired many different editions of Alice even copies illustrated by wonderful artists other than the great Tenniel. This particular edition of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND & THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS is a feast for the eyes as well as the mind and heart. In a beautiful slip-cover with happy Mad Tea Party art decorating it, and with the sumptuous large edition with many color illustrations (the best I've seen and I have at least 4 copies that have colorized Tenniel) the stories feel brand new. I started reading immediately and it took me back to that very first time I discovered my way into Carroll's masterpiece. This is a boon to anyone who loves Alice or collects fine books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book
By PCas on July 6, 2019
I love the color and the cover material. It’s not a hard cover but it’s also not paper, more like a smooth plastic (hard to describe). The detail on the outside is nice and I love the attached gold bookmark. All of the print in mine is fine and not smudged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alice in wonderland and Alice through the looking glass by Lewis Carroll
By clara10159 on August 14, 2020
Ever since I could remember being able to read books like Black Beauty, Secret Garden,The Little Princesses and Annie. Alice in wonderland has always been my favorite classical novel. I was super excited to find a used copy of this two story novel by Lewis Carroll. I believe used books need loving home too and that we should support our libraries by donating books and buy used books from them this service helps keep library cards free to use and get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Incredible!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 21, 2018
As a child, I would often fall asleep listening to various adaptations of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I came to love the story and its characters, but have never, since entering adulthood, considered this book from a literary perspective. Perhaps, in my mind, it will always be a children’s book; after all, its protagonist is a child, and it considers such imaginative creatures and scenarios that it would seem out of place alongside the Victorian realism of its time. I was therefore surprised when I noticed this book, along with Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass, on my reading list for this university term, but having now appreciated Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as an adult, I realise my mistake: whilst it was once written for children, it has long since been considered an adult read, dealing with issues and themes that are considered in many other Victorian novels, such as Brontë’s Villette, and Dickens’ Great Expectations.

I’m going to be honest: I read this book in a day, and look forward to getting stuck into Through the Looking-Glass as soon as I can, because, when it really comes down to it, Lewis Carroll knows how to tell a good story. There’s nothing quite like these books when it comes to imagination, not even Terry Pratchett’s or J. R. R. Tolkien’s works. They’re fantastical, unbelievable, and somehow mesmerising, if only because they are just so different to what we are used to reading. So, whether you’re already familiar with Alice’s adventures or not, I thoroughly recommend you give this book a read, and see whether you think it is only meant for children. It’s very short, and each chapter is only a couple of pages long, which makes it easily accessible and a good read for when you only have a few short breaks in a day. Read it to analyse it, or read it for the sake of a good story; either way, read it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely prints, just a few faulty pages
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 9, 2021
I havent read the book yet, but I'll comment and say the print is perfect, there are lovely illustrations (not so many but still some), but i did get a faulty few pages where it may not have been trimmed properly. I dont mind too much as the rest of the book is just fine, so I'll trim the 2 pages myself. Im excited to give the book a read, but when it comes to Alice In Wonderland, a review can be very opinionated so if you do buy the book i hope you love it! :)
