Alice in Wonderland
Young Alice leads an ordinary sort of life until, one day, she follows a rabbit down a hole and embarks on a series of adventures with some of the most weird and wonderful characters anyone has ever encountered! She soon discovers that nothing is ordinary in Wonderland, least of all the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the Cheshire Cat, the Duchess, and the Mock Turtle.
Through the Looking Glass
Alice sees another world in the looking glass and wishes she could go there, but when her wish comes true she embarks on a game of chess like she's never known before! Her aim is to become the Queen of the Chess Board, and in order to achieve it she takes counsel from Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the Lion and the Unicorn, and a very helpful gnat.
Alan Bennett's delightful readings beautifully complement the sparkling wit and intelligence of Lewis Carroll's enduring children's classics.

Excellent abridgement for children
I have fond memories of listening to this abridged version many times as a child. The reader is entertaining, at times hilarious, and the abridgement flows well. It's not a complete version of the stories, but does a fine job of condensing them for kids (or for kids at heart).
Having to buy again
I am displeased that the first story doesn’t stop and the narrator indicts where the new story begins. Also, it skips paragraphs. Maybe I didn’t read into exactly what this purchase was going to include. I assumed the Book Alice and her Adventures in Wonderland and then Through the Looking Glass. And the reading would be exactly verbatim. Skipping paragraphs is not okay.
