Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There

Author(s): Lewis Carroll

Fiction

When Alice steps through the looking-glass, she enters a world of chess pieces and nursery rhyme characters who behave very strangely. Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the dotty White Knight and the sharp-tempered Red Queen - none of them are what they seem.

A journey into the depths of an imaginative world.
