Format: Hardcover
If you like imaginative, funny, and non -putting- down stories, then Alice Through the Looking glass is the book for you. This is the 2nd book Lewis Carol wrote.
Alice goes to bed and finds out that she can travel through her dreams! Travel with Alice through the strange world called " REFLECTION ".
This is one of my favourite books. I like this book because he uses these words mimes, door post, natural, and curiously. I also like the way Lewis Carol expressed and thought what the characters were going to say. This book would be for 8 and over.

I love this version of Alice. Helen Oxenbury has captured the characters in her usual loveable humorous style. This will appeal to modern children because Alice looks a child of today, but the layout and print are also big, attractive, slightly quirky - it's going to take its place as one of the great Alice's and will help another generation to identify with and enjoy this wonderful old classic.

By Steven R. McEvoy TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 4 Dec. 2008
Format: Paperback
Though this book is not much better than Alice's Adventures, the chess motif and theme does make the book much more interesting. With the bossy, dominant Red Queen and the quiet, kind, messy white queen, the book is a study in contrasts.

The interweaving of the Nursery Rhyme Characters and the frequent fish poetry references does provide more continuity and a sense of sequential events than Alice's first adventure. I also appreciated the linking of the cat at the beginning and end of the story.

It does still feel like Carroll did way too many opium pipes in his time.

(First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.)
