Alice's second adventure takes her through the looking glass to a place even curiouser than Wonderland, in this gorgeous hardback gift edition

Alice finds herself caught up in the great looking glass chess game and sets off to become a queen. It isn't as easy as she expects: at every step she is hindered by nonsense characters who crop up and insist on reciting poems. Some of these poems, such as "The Walrus and the Carpenter" and "Jabberwocky," are as famous as the Alice stories themselves. Gloriously illustrated with the original line drawings by John Tenniel, plates colored by John Macfarlane, a ribbon marker, and a foreword by Philip Ardagh, this beautiful hardback edition of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass, which was first published by Macmillan in 1871, is a truly special gift to treasure.
