Overview

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.

Honestly, I am not sure I got the story!I loved the crazy writing but the story was so confusing. It felt like a lot of short stories linked together with some random element,It is a poor relation of alice in wonderland (which I loved).
