- Анотація

A sequel to «Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland», the book tells of Alice’s experiences when she climbs through a mirror to discover a bizarre fantasy world on the other side of the glass.

In looking-glass land everything is reversed, just as reflections are reversed in a mirror.

Brooks and hedges divide the land into a checker-board, and Alice finds herself a white pawn in the whimsical and fantastic game of chess that constitutes the bulk of the story.

On her trip to the eighth square, where she at last becomes a queen, Alice meets talking flowers, looking-glass insects , a man in a white paper suit, such nursery rhyme characters as Humpty Dumpty and the Lion and the Unicorn, and many others, including Tweedledum and Tweededee and the White Knight.

Lewis Carroll’s much-analyzed poem «Jabberwocky» makes its first appearance in «Alice Through The Looking Glass».
