The girl sees a magnificent garden and a twisting road leading t Alice at the ripe old age of seven and a half is still bored , as she plays with her adorable black and white kittens, yet she needs something better, again ignored by her older sister The girl sees a magnificent garden and a twisting road leading there Nevertheless she ends back were she started disoriented, perplexed, downright anxious.
Welcome to the fantastic world on the other side of the mirror, the fast traveling Red Queen not to be confused with the Queen of Hearts tells the little girl she too can become a queen if Alice must navigate the maze of dark woods, losing her way, asking directions and getting baffling answers, from strange things, animal and human, well maybe some are and the weird characters she encounters, the over confident Humpty Dumpty on a wall, shaped like an egg, forever espousing his belief he can stay there without stumbling, Alice is not too sure, as he asks unanswerable questions.
Tweedledee and Tweedledum two fat twin boys constantly reciting poetry, don't bother trying to tell them apart The White Queen a befuddled old careless woman, dressed inappropriately , sloppily, in other words a mess. The Lion and Unicorn their never ending daily battles for the throne Not to forget the White Knight, his day job, the passion, making minor inventions a little disguised version of the great writer Lewis Carroll , he and his horse are seldom attached, the ground is more his home but gets back on the saddle.
The Red King sleeps so peacefully never waking and the White King has troubles with an egg.
Others like the diverting talking flowers, make this story flow smoothly to the inevitable conclusion. Lewis Carroll was a very inventive author, always giving the reader plenty of material to digest, this is not just for children, these books Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through The Looking- Glass are charming classics for everyone who enjoys reading.

Basically Alice in Wonderland is the superior book, but not by much. 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. 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. The characters in Goodreads having eaten my first review of this book, I need to hastily rewrite another.

The characters in book 2 are not as memorable as Alice in Wonderland. Yet these two books are nearly part of folklore now. The half baked movie adaptations show how difficult is it to imitate genius. Let every child and adult revel in the untouched and pristine classics that is Alice.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass
I mean, no one is making me. Technically speaking, I am in no way obligated to review this. But also, in a much more real important way, because I am the one saying it: I absolutely must. Because I love this book so goddamn much. By cheating. And Alice's Adventures Under Ground , for good measure. You should watch the bird scene from The Notebook, and the sad part from Titanic, and the scene in Say Anything when John Cusack holds the boombox over his head. All of those viewings are just to have a good laugh, though. Perhaps through all of these reviews and readings and viewings, you can gain a passing understanding of how much I love Alice.

Probably not, though. View all 4 comments. A charming book, full of surprising insights into the true meaning and historical background of various seemingly straightforward passages in the Alice books. So much so, that one wishes that there were more of these annotations. That I had missed while growing up. It has lots of lessons that are currently applicable to people in their everyday life.
For instance, the Cheshire Cat when Alice asked him where she should go.

So many people in life don't know where they're going and so they just settle on one arbitrary direction.
Lewis Carroll is a master and his craft. If you love children's stories, you will love Through the Looking Glass. If you love magic, you will love Through the Looking Glass. If you love words, you will love Through the Looking Glass. I love Through the Looking Glass. View 2 comments. Aug 01, J. I think that the failure not only of Children's Literature as a whole, but of our very concept of children and the child's mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind.
Children are first protected from their culture--kept remote and safe--and then they are thrust incongruously into a world that they have been told is unsafe and unsavory; and we expected them not to blanch. It has been my policy that the best literature for children is not a trifling thing, not I think that the failure not only of Children's Literature as a whole, but of our very concept of children and the child's mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind.
It has been my policy that the best literature for children is not a trifling thing, not a simplification of the adult or a sillier take on the world. Good Children's literature is some of the most difficult literature to write because one must challenge, engage, please, and awe a mind without resorting to archetypes or life experience. Once a body grows old enough, we are all saddened by the thought of a breakup.
We have a set of knowledge and memories. The pain returns to the surface. Children are not born with these understandings, so to make them understand pain, fear, and loss is no trivial thing. The education of children is the transformation of an erratic and hedonistic little beast into a creature with a rational method by which to judge the world. A child must be taught not to fear monsters but to fear instead electrical outlets, pink slips, poor people, and lack of social acceptance.
The former is frightening in and of itself, the latter for complex, internal reasons. I think the real reason that culture often fears sexuality and violence in children is because they are such natural urges.
