Overview

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) is a novel by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). It is based on his meeting with another Alice, Alice Raikes. Set some six months later than the earlier book, Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it. Though not quite as popular as Wonderland, Through the Looking-Glass includes such celebrated verses as "Jabberwocky" and "The Walrus and the Carpenter", and the episode involving Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

About the Author

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), better known by his pen name Lewis Carroll, published Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in 1865 and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, in 1871. Considered a master of the genre of literary nonsense, he is renowned for his ingenious wordplay and sense of logic, and his highly original vision.

Sir John Tenniel briefly attended the Royal Academy Schools, but for the most part he was a self taught artist. His illustrations appeared regularly in Punch, but it was the Alice books that confirmed his international reputation as an illustrator. Tenniel was knighted in 1893.

Peter Glassman is the owner of Books of Wonder, the New York City bookstore and publisher specializing in new and old imaginative books for children. He is also the editor of the Books of Wonder Classics, a series of deluxe facsimiles and newly illustrated editions of timeless tales. And he is the author of The Wizard Next Door, illustrated by Steven Kellogg. Mr. Glassman lives in New York City.

the major problems with this nook book are as follows... 1. most words are spelled wrong 2. there are random numbers and words in the middle of lines that don't belong there 3. there are so many of these mistakes it's almost impossible to read.

I loce this book, but this copy of it is barely enjoyable because of the botched formatting. You may try it, but I don't recommend it.

Not the worst I've seen here, as pages are somewhat readable, but it's definitely striving to be among the others in the bottom of the trash heap.

I love Alice through the Looking Glass so much more than Alice in Wonderland, if that's even possible, because I love both of these, but reading this classic sequel not only showed me how Alice is tested and prodded by the eccentric friends she meets, but it shows more of her creativity coming out of her. This book teaches children that impossible can still happen, even if they doubt that it will. She's a uniquely changed character from the first work, in that she is no longer naive but has gained perspective on adapting to new people and new places. I almost wish her adventures would continue. This book should be taught as a part of language arts curriculum that's required for young children in around second and third grades. Fantastic to read, sing with, and recite the poems (that are more widely known than the first written work).

When Alice was thinking about the world in looking-grass,she passed through it and went there.She met various strange characters.And she experienced many strange things.I read this story when I was a child.I didn't remember it clearly,but knew rough outline,so it was easy to read.I like "Alice in wonderland" very much,but also like sequel to it,this story.

Alice is a little girl as you know. She wandered into the looking-glass world. She met some strange characters and wandered around the world.I think she is full of adventure. If she was my neighbor, I would be excited, but I might be a little tired, because she is a restless girl. I can't understand the meanings of some poems and songs in Endlish well. If I understand it, I can enjoy this story more.

Alice is an imaginative little girl.She wondered how was the world of the looking-glass and asked for her kitten how about going there.Then,surplisingly,she throught into the looking-glass world!In this story,she met a lot of mysterious characters;the white queen,the red queen,the red king,and the talking flowes;and experienced a lot of strange things;she was told the twin's poem from memory and exchanged questions and answers with Humpty -Dumpty (the egg-man),and so on...It's difficult for me to understand story.But ¿ was interested in a back word letter in book and ¿like Humpty -Dumpty and the white knight who saved Alice from the red knight.¿ want to read again after ¿ learn about this story.

The mein character Alice, who is a little girl get through into looking-glass and she experience a lot of strange things.Could she go back home? This story is very humorous and fun. We cannot guess the next story. And I think it is pretty difficult to understand this story. I have ever seen this animation (¿not Desney) ,so I can understand this story. But if you don't know this story in advance, I think there are manay place where you cannot understand. Because this story is very very strange!!

The text has apparently not been proofread or edited at all after scanning. It is full of scanning errors including misspelled words, unrelated symbols, extraneous spaces and empty lines, and blocks of text which are out of order.

Poor quality at times. Recommended only for those tolerant souls. Otherwise, an excellent story.

The story is wonderfull as you probably know. This version has illistrations. On the other hand, it is a rather poor OCR capture of a New York public library book. Sections are jibberish characters. Page brakes are not well controlled, with page headers interspersed in the text.
