Lewis Carroll: Alice Through the Looking Glass, illustrated by Robert Ingpen
''Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.''
When Alice steps through the looking-glass in the drawing room one snowy, drowsy afternoon, she finds herself in a peculiar, topsy-turvy world where chess pieces walk about, flowers talk and nothing is quite as it seems. Alice is caught up in a bizarre chess game and encounters some rather eccentric characters, both new and familiar including the argumentative Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the Lion and the Unicorn, the nonsensical White Queen and the quick-tempered Red Queen. The story features the poems, The Walrus and the Carpenter and Jabberwocky , which have become just as well known as Alice s adventures themselves.
