Alice returns to Wonderland in Through the Looking Glass, another imaginative fantasy from author Lewis Carroll. While gazing into the looking glass, Alice wonders what it would be like to live in a backwards world. Climbing through it, she finds her answer: a world where winter is summer, flowers and sheep can talk, and people celebrate their unbirthdays. The book features a surreal supporting cast of eccentrics, including a royal family of sentient chess pieces and nursery rhyme characters like Humpty Dumpty and Tweedledee and Tweedledum. It also contains a pair of poems brilliantly absurd enough to stand on their own: the Jabberwocky and The Walrus and the Carpenter.

If you love fantasies and odd dreams, this is a great book to add to your virtual library. What captivated me the most (besides the way the author created dreams filled with enough absurdity that you accept it with wonderful madness) is the poetry. It is written in such a way that it is easy to ready and lovely to understand. What's not to like about this book if you love crazy dreams? And the book is free!

Bookbyte Digital did an amazing job with this book! Their edition of the first book, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", was nearly perfect and was superior to their edition of "Through the Looking Glass and what Alice found there" in some aspects (i. e. a couple misspellings in the later, no inclusion of alternative illustrations, etc.), but the essential and much more can be expected from this edition! Do download it, please, for it is a great treat for your iBooks library and your reading pleasure, especially if you enjoyed the first book as much as I and many others did!
