Whereas the first book has the deck of playing cards as a theme, Through the Looking-Glass is based on a game of chess, played on a giant chessboard with fields for squares

Whereas the first book has the deck of playing cards as a theme, Through the Looking-Glass is based on a game of chess, played on a giant chessboard with fields for squares. Most of the main characters are represented by a chess piece, with Alice being a pawn. The looking-glass world is divided into sections by brooks or streams, with the crossing of each brook usually signifying a change in the scene, and corresponding to Alice advancing by one square.

CHAPTER 1 Looking-Glass house . One thing was certain, that the WHITE kitten had had nothing to do with it: - it was the black kitten's fault entirely. Well then, the books are something like our books, only the words go the wrong way; I know that, because I've held up one of our books to the glass, and then they hold up one in the other room. Oh, Kitty! how nice it would be if we could only get through into Lookingglass House! I'm sure it's got, oh! such beautiful things in it! Let's pretend there's a way of getting through into it, somehow, Kitty.

Through the. Looking-Glass. Introduced by. Chris riddell. Illustrations by JOHN TENNIEL. Published by the Penguin Group. Like Tenniel, Lewis Carroll’s superb illustrator, I am a political cartoonist and I have often borrowed the great man’s creations, ‘with apologies to Tenniel’, in my cartoons. I’ve drawn government ministers as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, several prime ministers as Humpty Dumpty falling off high walls and, once, an iron lady on the White Knight’s horse. In many ways Through the Looking-Glass is a mirror image of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

It is nice to read bith and see him develop intto an ever greater story teller as he grows and that he is using his love for poems and.

Through the Looking-Glass. An Illustrated Collection of Classic Books). Sir John Tenniel was an English illustrator, graphic humourist and political cartoonist whose work was prominent during the second half of the 19th century. Tenniel was knighted by Victoria for his artistic achievements in 1893. With knighthood, Tenniel elevated the social status of the black and white illustrator, and sparked a new sense of recognition of and occupational honour to his lifelong profession.

Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. Book 2 is proof that Lewis Carroll can make lightning strike twice. In book 2, Alice finds herself through her mirror, and interacts with the kingly chess pieces

Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. 144991599X (ISBN13: 9781449915995). In book 2, Alice finds herself through her mirror, and interacts with the kingly chess pieces. She goes out into the garden, not easily due to navigational problems. No wonder everything she achieves in that place is seen as a victory. Basically Alice in Wonderland is the superior book, but not by much.

LEWIS CARROLL’S NEW STORY THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS, AND WHAT ALICE FOUND THERE, By Lewis Carroll, author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. With fifty illustrations, by John Tenniel, London: Macmillan and Co. 1872. Lewis Carroll has been telling another modern fairy tale to those three fortunate young ladies who have him for their fabulist, and now the result lies before us in a charming Christmas book, where those thousands of children of a larger or smaller growth who have laughed over the adventures of Alice, that most delightful of little girls, may follow their heroine through

About John Tenniel’s illustrations. About Lewis Carroll .

About John Tenniel’s illustrations. Looking Glass made up almost wholly of bits and scraps, single ideas that came of themselves. Carroll considered having several pages of the book actually printed in reverse, so the reader would have to hold them up to a looking-glass to read, but in the end this proved to be too expensive and troublesome, and only the first stanza of ‘Jabberwocky’ was reversed. Originally, the story contained a chapter called ‘A wasp in a Wig‘, but Carroll decided to drop it before publication.

Illustrated by Sir John Tenniel

Illustrated by Sir John Tenniel. Collected here are Lewis Carroll's two classics - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass - in which Alice encounters the laconic Cheshire Cat, the anxious White Rabbit and the terrifying Red Queen, as well as a host of other outlandish and charming characters. I revelled in all the logical games, and the wordplay.

These timeless tales are perfect entertainment for the entire family.

SHAME ON AMAZON! Once again they have put reviews of a variety of Alice editions together without any regard to the volume in question. This is not a pop-up, not a coloring book, does not lack illustrations, is not small, and is not specifically intended for young children. This is an annotated edition meant to inform and entertain older readers with a variety of illustrations including the black and white originals. For those who wish to know the tale behind the jokes and puzzles a must. Other readers may wish a more streamlined edition or a modern 'retelling' with colored illustrations by contemporary artists. I'm sure they'll find a review for all versions in this hodgepodge.

We ordered the Alice in Wonderland with the green leather cover. I thought it was difficult to tell which reviews went with which versions. I'm really glad we grabbed this version, the cover (despite the ugly green color) is quite beautiful with embossed lettering and shiny red roses and border. The edge of the pages are golden, there is a red ribbon for marking your page. All of the original artwork is presented, and the page layouts are perfect. The front and back cover have a vivid full color painting of the tea party. If you are looking for a high quality version of the book, I couldn't recommend this one more. The size is medium. It is half way between the size of a paperback and a hard cover text book.

I don't always like annotated editions, but I bought this one because both stories were included and it retains all of the original illustrations like the ones I remember reading as a child. Having said that, I enjoyed the illustrations by other artists included for historical context. Some of them are quite stunning, in fact. The thing I hate about annotated editions is the way the annotations create visual "clutter." Yes, that is the case here as well. I really have to force my slightly OCD-like mind to ignore that and concentrate on the text of the story. However, as a history buff, I enjoy reading the annotations from a historical perspective. It's a big book, so if you enjoy a hefty hardcover, this is the one for you.

This is incredible! Absolutely beautiful.. Extended my expectations!! I have seriously never seen a more beautiful book! The detail is awesome and even the story itself is from the original Lewis Carroll version. Not only is each page a beautiful pop up.. But each page has mini fold out pages with more pop up artwork. This will be a keepsake for our family. SO glad I bought this and will look at buying others!

First off - it's one condensed book and not four. The original image that loaded when I viewed this showed the picture that's on the cover, not the cover itself. I thought I was getting four books. I was disappointed with that, but thought if the original content was fine, then I could live with it. HOWEVER! They manged to condense the book by removing all the original formatting and illustrations that helped to make the stories. The illustrations where why I wanted a physical copy of the book again after losing the one from my childhood in various moves. Frankly, I'm disgusted at this and am returning it.

"And what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?"

This review is specifically for the penguin hardcover cloth-bound classics edition (white with pink flamingos)!

Naturally, the tale of Alice in Wonderland (told in two books; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass) is definitely a fun, unique tale that appeals to children and adults alike, so of course I wanted to own a quality copy of it! I like how this edition contains both books and is hardcover with a simple cover design that looks timeless and elegant on my bookshelf. The book is full of useful notes and information in edition to having the tale; plus it contains the classic illustrations too! The paper is very high quality, the printing very attractive, and overall it was well worth the $10 I spent on it. I thought it was such an attractive edition that I bought one for my sister, who is a collector of the various editions of this tale. I've no complaints except that I don't really care for how rough the fabric is; it's not very nice to hold in your bare hands in my opinion, and it makes a sound when it's placed on the shelf next to other cloth-bound hardcovers from the penguin classics series, so those are two things to keep in mind. I personally would have preferred either a softer fabric or for the books to have been bound in hard-backed pleather.
