Alice Through the Looking-Glass free pdf More than 70 original illustrations by Robert Ingpen complement the complete and unabridged text in this edition published to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll's first Alice book in November 1865 When Alice steps through the looking-glass in the drawing room one drowsy winter afternoon, she finds herself in a peculiar, topsy-turvy world where chess pieces walk about, flowers talk, and nothing is quite as it seems. Alice is caught up in a bizarre chess game and encounters some rather eccentric characters including the argumentative Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the Lion and the Unicorn, the nonsensical White Queen, and the quick-tempered Red Queen. The story features the poems, The Walrus and the Carpenter and Jabberwocky," which have become just as well known as Alice s adventures themselves. The award-winning artist Robert Ingpen has illustrated Lewis Carroll s enchanting sequel to "Alice s Adventures in Wonderland" in this sumptuous volume. Full of anarchic humour, witty rhymes, and sparkling word play, it will delight new readers and devoted Alice fans alike."

About Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 1898), born in Cheshire, England, who became a lecturer in Mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford. In 1862, on a boating picnic, Carroll made up a story to tell a group of children, among them the eleven-year-old daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, Alice Liddell. "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" was published three years later and became a publishing sensation, beloved by children and adults alike. Carroll soon began to work on another book featuring his inquisitive young heroine and based on the idea of a chess game. "Alice Through the Looking-Glass" was published in 1871. Robert Ingpen has designed, illustrated, and written more than 100 published works of fiction and nonfiction, among them "The Jungle Book "and the centenary edition of "Peter Pan and Wend"y. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children's literature."
