In 1865, English author, pen named Lewis Carroll, wrote a fantastical adventure story for the young daughters of a friend. The adventures of Alice who journeys down a rabbit hole and into a whimsical underworld realm. In 1872, in reaction to the universal acclaim Alice's Adventures in Wonderland received, Carroll published this sequel. Nothing is quite what it seems once Alice journeys through the looking glass, and Carroll's wit is infectious as he explores concepts of mirror imagery, time running backward, and strategies of chess-all wrapped up in the exploits of a spirited young girl who parries with the Red Queen, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and other unlikely characters. In many ways, this sequel has had an even greater impact on today's pop culture than the first book.
