Carroll, Lewis Alices Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass (Clothbound Classics)
О чем написано в этой книге Carroll, Lewis Alices Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass (Clothbound Classics). And luckily for generations of enraptured children, Carroll was again able to persuade John Tenniel to create the fantastic woodblock engravings that have become so indelibly associated with the Alice stories. As in life, Alice must stay on her toes to learn the rules of this game. When shes not traipsing after a rabbit into Wonderland, shes gallivanting off into the topsy-turvy world behind the drawing-room looking glass. In Through the Looking Glass, Lewis Carrolls masterful and zany sequel to Alices Adventures in Wonderland, she makes more eccentric acquaintances, including Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the White Queen, and a somewhat grumpy Humpty Dumpty. For almost 130 years, Alices curious adventures have amused, perplexed, and delighted readers, young and old. That Alice. What is the use of a book, thought Alice, without pictures? Through a giant and elaborate chess game, Alice explores this odd country, where one must eat dry biscuits to quench thirst, and run like the wind to stay in one place. What indeed? Through the Looking Glass immediately took its rightful place beside its partner on the shelf of eternal classics. This gorgeous, deluxe boxed set of both volumes contains engravings from Tenniels original woodblocks that were discovered in a London bank in 1985, and reproduced for the first time here.
