Publisher's Summary

One thing was certain, that the white kitten had had nothing to do with it: it was the black kitten's fault entirely. For the white kitten had been having its face washed by the old cat for the last quarter of an hour (and bearing it pretty well, considering); so you see that it couldn't have had any hand in the mischief.

The way Dinah washed her children's faces was this: first she held the poor thing down by its ear with one paw, and then with the other paw she rubbed its face all over, the wrong way, beginning at the nose: and just now, as I said, she was hard at work on the white kitten, which was lying quite still and trying to purr - no doubt feeling that it was all meant for its good.

But the black kitten had been finished with earlier in the afternoon, and so, while Alice was sitting curled up in a corner of the great arm-chair, half talking to herself and half asleep, the kitten had been having a grand game of romps with the ball of worsted Alice had been trying to wind up, and had been rolling it up and down till it had all come undone again; and there it was, spread over the hearth-rug, all knots and tangles, with the kitten running after its own tail in the middle.

"Oh, you wicked little thing!" cried Alice, catching up the kitten, and giving it a little kiss to make it understand that it was in disgrace. "Really, Dinah ought to have taught you better manners! You ought, Dinah, you know you ought!" she added, looking reproachfully at the old cat, and speaking in as cross a voice as she could manage-and then she scrambled back into the arm-chair, taking the kitten and the worsted with her, and began winding up the ball again. But she didn't get on very fast, as she was talking all the time, sometimes to the kitten, and sometimes to herself. Kitty sat very demurely on her knee, pretending to watch the progress of the winding, and now and then putting out one paw and gently touching the ball, as if it would be glad to help, if it might.

    Story
    "From mad to sane, pass the tea please.."

    Through the looking glass is one of those classics that are more sane then insane from Lewis carroll. Less acid trip more story time that makes you smile with great imagery. I know the original had amazing artwork that helped you imagine the scenes and characters, I prefer to imagine them myself without constraint. Narration was good, he had a slightly gruff voice but eloquent non the less with the different voices. Have a child that craves imagination, then read them this book and they will LOVE IT!!

    Story
    "Another Wonderful Adventure"

    Through the Looking Glass is the sequel to Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, and it's just as delightful an adventure as the first. Alice steps through her mirror into Looking Glass World where writing is backwards and cake must be passed round before it's cut. We meet with more humorous characters like Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, and the Red and White Queens.

    Through the Looking Glass is more logical than Wonderland, Alice is moving across the land square by square like a chess board, and meeting characters in each square. It still seems like a dream but it's less... trippy. I also like Alice herself more in the second book, she's less argumentative and confused. Some of her fancies are so sweet, like when Alice describes the snow loving the trees and fields and kissing them gently.

    I think Wonderland has the better characters, with the Chesire Cat, Mad Hatter, and the white rabbit, while Looking Glass has the better poetry with Walrus and the Carpenter and The Jabberwocky. It's billed as a children's story but the puns tickled my funny bone and I enjoyed it much more hearing it as an adult.

    Jack Nolan did a great job as narrator, he gave each character a separate speaking voice but they weren't overdone. They fit in really well and didn't distract from the story. I really liked the cool editing feature during the first attempt at The Jabberwocky! I was provided a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    “I was provided this free review copy audiobook by the author or narrator." This review is for the audio copy of Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll and narrated by Jack Nolan.<br/>This is a well-known story and Jack Nolan did a superb job of bringing it to audio format. My wife and I enjoyed listening to the story during our back and forth trips to town. <br/>
