- Анотація

This 1872 sequel to Lewis Carroll's beloved «Alice's Adventures in Wonderland» finds the inquisitive heroine in a fantastic land where everything is reversed.

Looking-glass land, a topsy-turvy world lurking just behind the mirror over Alice's mantel, is a fantastic realm of live chessmen, madcap kings and queens, strange mythological creatures, talking flowers and puddings, and rude insects.

Brooks and hedges divide the lush greenery of looking-glass land into a chessboard, where Alice becomes a pawn in a bizarre game of chess involving Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Lion and the Unicorn, the White Knight, and other nursery-rhyme figures.

Promised a crown when she reaches the eighth square, Alice perseveres through a surreal landscape of amusing characters that pelt her with riddles and humorous semantic quibbles and regale her with memorable poetry, including the oft-quoted «Jabberwocky».

The matchless original illustrations by Tenniel share with Carroll’s text the glory of making Alice immortal.
