Chris Riddell's brilliant full-colour illustrated Through the Looking-glass in a sumptuous hardback jacketed edition, a perfect gift for families, children and all fans of this much-loved favourite classic.

First published by Macmillan more than 150 years ago, Lewis Carroll’s iconic stories have been loved and enjoyed by generations of children the world over.


Curious Alice's second adventure takes her through the looking-glass to a place even stranger than the Wonderland of her first adventure. Caught up in the great looking-glass chess game she sets off across the chequerboard landscape to become a queen on the final square. It isn't as easy as she expects: at every step she is hindered by unusual, funny and nonsense characters who crop up. Some of them insist on reciting poems to her and these poems, such as 'The Walrus and The Carpenter' and 'Jabberwocky', are now as famous as the Alice stories themselves.
This edition presents Lewis Carroll's complete text, with illustrations from Costa Award- and Kate Greenaway Medal-winner Chris Riddell. Published 200 years after the birth of Alice’s first illustrator, Sir John Tenniel, also the political cartoonist of his time, Chris Riddell's illustrations set a new bar in terms of excellence with his unique, rich and evocative interpretation of Carroll's world.
