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.
Classics Illustrated comics returns with this dismal adaptation of Carroll's second Alice tale. Most of the charming paradoxes and silly puns are salvaged in gs the text, arranged in columns beneath the artwork rather than in word balloons. Consequently, a lot of very small illustrations are needed to carry the dialogue between Alice and the many looking-glass characters--to the detriment of the visual appeal of the work. g Baker ( Why I Hate Saturn ) is a good caricaturist, but the drawings often appear perfunctory and the color choicesg flat, garish and awkward. At its best (the Humpty Dumpty scenes), the g sketchy linework seems more appropriate to a realistic narrative, a thriller or a political satire, and the g book lacks throughout the careful design and rendering that a children's classic requires.
Do not let Disney mess this up for you.(unless you have read them, then you can.) This is a great book. The poetry is light, the book is witty, original illustrations, text, anyone should read it sometime in their life. Here is some advice for readers.
1. Do not let the short length fool you. It took me a week. I recommend finishing a chapter before stopping, it can be confusing when you return.
2. Take your time.
3. Try not to see the Disney characters in your head. Enjoy John Tenniel’s illustrations.
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!
It is good
