Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There was first published in December 1871 and is the sequel to Alice's Adventures In Wonderland (1865), by author Lewis Carroll.Alice Through the Looking Glass - John Tenniel, Tony Ross & Helen Oxenbury
Alice again enters a fantastical and nonsensical world, but is this the Wonderland that she happened upon once a lazy dream ago, when she followed the White rabbit down that hole? This time it is snowing outside so she is playing inside with two kittens, a black one called Kitty and a white one called Snowdrop, so this is quite different to the sunny day when she entered Wonderland previously. But again, we see the 'dream' quality - is this a prerequisite for entering fantastical and wondrous worlds? “Alice was sitting curled up in a corner of the great armchair, half talking to herself and half asleep”.
