“Life, what is it but a dream?” In Alice in Wonderland, Alice falls down a rabbit hole to find herself in a bizarre land ruled by a ruthless Queen of Hearts. In Through the Looking-Glass, Alice visits another fantastical world where everything is reversed. Is it all real, just a figment of Alice’s imagination, . . . or both?
This abridged retelling is the perfect way to introduce young readers to the grinning Cheshire Cat, Tweedledee, Tweedledum, and the Jabberwocky.

Lewis Carroll was born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson in 1832 in Cheshire, England. He is most famous for writing the playfully inventive Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass. He also lectured in mathematics at the University of Oxford.
