Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass Synopsis

Celebrate 150 Years of Alice. Alice is one of the most beloved characters of English writing. A bright and inquisitive child, one boring summer afternoon she follows a white rabbit down a rabbit-hole. At the bottom she finds herself in a bizarre world full of strange creatures, and attends a very strange tea party and croquet match. This immensely witty and unique story mixes satire and puzzles, comedy and anxiety, to provide an astute depiction of the experience of childhood.

'Two nightmare destinations. Wonderland and Looking Glass. The more I read these books, the darker they shine. Carroll operates on language like a cruel, crazy surgeon' -- Jeff Noon
