Alice Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury (Ages 9-12)

Everyone knows the story of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, but have they been through the looking-glass?

Helen Oxenbury's illustrations in ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS, provide the tale with equal parts 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.
