The story of Through the Looking-Glass is a real family favourite, following Alice's fantastical adventures in the strange world she enters through the mirror above her drawing-room fireplace.
What she finds there is a world laid out in the form of a giant chess board and before long Alice finds herself entering the game as a white pawn.
The story follows her travels across the board until she is crowned queen at the eighth square and along the way she encounters some of Carroll's most memorable and enduring characters, among them Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Walrus and the Carpenter, The Lion and the Unicorn, and the Jabberwock. The piece is also filled with many fine nonsense poems and songs which are still quoted today.
