Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the fabled Jabberwocky, or that vexing concept of every-other-day jam (you can have it yesterday and tomorrow…but never today!) – the weird world of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass has seeped as deeply into the world's imagination as its predecessor, Alice in Wonderland. And yet the world Alice encounters on the other side of her looking glass mirror is best seen - or, in this case, heard - firsthand. Narrator Flo Gibson strives for a wistful humor in a performance that transcends the less-than-stellar audio quality of this classic book.
Lewis Carroll followed up his classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with the equally wondrous sequel Through the Looking Glass, a timeless tale that imaginatively blends laughter, mischief, and magic. The story begins on a cold, snowy day, when Alice must stay inside. She decides to play a game of make-believe, but the game becomes real when Alice steps through a mirror - and into another world! Desperate to return to her real life, Alice faces a series of bizarre adventures and unforgettable characters, including Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and the Jabberwocky. This astonishing presentation of Through the Looking Glass transports us into Carroll's - and Alice's - frightfully funny fantasy world, delighting children of all ages.
