Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass

One day Alice is sitting outside with her sister feeling bored until she sees a white rabbit wearing a pocket watch.  This is the beginning of a great adventure.  She follows the rabbit down a hole, and from that moment on nothing behaves like it is supposed to.  There is growing and shrinking, a philosophical caterpillar, a mad hatter, and a shape-changing baby.  Don't forget the Queen of Hearts who is cruel and tricky.

In the second part of this volume, Alice returns to Wonderland by going through a mirror into Looking Glass Land.  Here she meets the players on a chess board and has many strange experiences as the she plays on a large scale board with the Red Queen and the White Queen.  Alice begins as a pawn, but she must try to become a queen herself if she hopes to return home again.
