"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and its sequel, "Through the Looking-Glass" have captured the imaginations of readers since their publications. After Alice follows the frantically delayed White Rabbit down a hole, her adventures in the magical world of Wonderland begin. In "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," she meets a variety of wonderful creatures, including Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Cheshire Cat, the Caterpillar, the Mad Hatter, and the Queen of Hearts--who, with the help of her enchanted deck of playing cards, tricks Alice into playing a bizarre game of croquet. Her adventures continue in "Through the Looking-Glass," which is loosely based on a game of chess and includes Carroll's famous poem "Jabberwocky."
Enriched Classics enhance your engagement by introducing and explaining the historical and cultural significance of the work, the author's personal history, and what impact this book had on subsequent scholarship. Each book includes discussion questions that help clarify and reinforce major themes and reading recommendations for further research.

About the Author
Lewis Carroll is a pseudonym of the Rev. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, who was born on January 27, 1832, and died on January 14, 1898. His most famous works are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland; its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There; and The Hunting of the Snark.



The many works of Sir John Tenniel (1820-1914) include many humorous and political cartoons for Punch and other periodicals of the time, but he is best known for his illustrations of the original editions of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Class.
