Alice Through The Looking Glass {Book Review}

May 17, 2016

As a little girl, I can remember reading Alice in Wonderland followed by Alice Through the Looking Glass. Both stories fascinated me and to this day are a favourite of mine.

With the new Alice Through The Looking Glass film about to be released in cinemas what better time to refresh my memory of the story. As well as introducing Roo to the story before we go and see the film.

Alice Through The Looking Glass

Alice and Alice Through the Looking Glass

Climb through the looking glass with Alice and discover a topsy-turvy dreamworld of walking chess pieces, talking flowers, enchanted forests and Tweedledum and Tweedledee. You will never find a more curious place, where the faster you run the slower you become and where knights repeatedly fall off their horses.

This book retells Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece (and sequel to Alice In Wonderland) with a novelty twist for a generation of young readers. Open the flaps to uncover talking flowers, then turn the White Queen into a sheep and gaze in wonder at the crazy dinner party pop-up!

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

The Alice Through The Looking Glass story is a classic and is beautifully retold in this new edition. With the added twist with interactive lift up flaps to reveal parts of the story. Complete with beautiful illustrations they really help to bring the story alive. With the finale of a large double page pop up it really does finish the story in a fabulous way. Roo really enjoyed reading this story and finding out what the new film is based upon.

Price and Availability

The Alice Through The Looking Glass hardback book is priced at £14.99 and is available to buy from Amazon and all other good book retailers
