Alice Through the Looking-Glass
by Lewis Carroll. Illustrated by Robert Ingpen
When Alice steps through the looking-glass in the drawing room one drowsy winter afternoon, she finds herself in a peculiar, topsy-turvy world where chess pieces walk about, flowers talk and nothing is quite as it seems. Alice is caught up in a bizarre chess game and encounters some rather eccentric characters – including the argumentative Tweedledum and Tweedledee and Humpty Dumpty. The story features the poems, The Walrus and the Carpenter and Jabberwocky, which have become just as well-known as Alice’s adventures themselves.
The award-winning artist Robert Ingpen has illustrated Lewis Carroll’s enchanting sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in this sumptuous volume. Full of anarchic humour, witty rhymes and sparkling word play, it will delight new readers and devoted Alice fans alike.
Robert Ingpen was born in 1936 in Geelong, Australia, and still lives and works nearby in Barwon Heads. He studied illustration art and book design at The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children’s literature and he has been honoured with Membership of the Order of Australia.
A world-renowned artist and author, Ingpen has designed, illustrated and written more than one hundred books, including his highly acclaimed series of illustrated Children’s Classics, which have now been published in many editions around the world. www.robertingpen.com
