Description - Alice Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

Oh, Kitty, if only we could get through into Looking-glass House!"

A perfect companion to last year's celebratory 150th anniversary edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, once again we follow Alice's escapades with some of the most famous characters in literature, like Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, in a world where nothing is ever quite as it seems. Perfectly capturing the humour and nonsense of the original story, this edition is carefully abridged for younger readers and gloriously illustrated by world-famous author and illustrator Tony Ross.
