Alice Through the Looking-glass
Welcome back to the world of Helen Oxenbury's Alice! An exuberant edition of the Lewis Carroll masterpiece, lavishly illustrated by one of the most beloved children's book artists of our time.
Helen Oxenbury's ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND set a new standard for contemporary editions of Lewis Carroll's beloved classic. And now she has illustrated its companion, ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING- GLASS, with equal intimacy, warmth, and charm. Here again is Alice, dressed in her bright blue jumper and ready for adventure like any modern child. All it takes is a bit of curiosity about the room reversed in the mirror and suddenly Alice is in the Looking-Glass world with all manner of comical and magical characters — Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the lion and the unicorn, and a whole game board of chess pieces come to life.
On page after page, Helen Oxenbury's incomparable line drawings, sepia illustrations, and full-color paintings give today's children their own utterly accessible view into Lewis Carroll's timeless nonsense.
