A beautiful reimagining of this beloved children's book featuring full-colour illustrations by Chris Riddell, the 2015-2017 UK Children's Laureate.
Curious Alice's second story takes her through the looking-glass to a place even stranger than the Wonderland of her first adventure.
Caught up in the great looking-glass chess game she sets off across the chequerboard landscape to become a queen on the final square. It isn't as easy as she expects: at every step she is hindered by unusual, funny and nonsense characters who crop up, such as Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and Humpty Dumpty. Some of them insist on reciting poems to her and these poems, such as The Walrus and The Carpenter and Jabberwocky, are now as famous as the Alice stories themselves.
This edition presents Lewis Carroll's complete text, with illustrations from Costa Award- and Kate Greenaway Medal-winner Chris Riddell.
