Through the Looking-Glass

Lewis Carroll

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) (also known as Alice Through the Looking-Glass or simply Through the Looking-Glass) is a novel by Lewis Carroll and the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it. There she finds that, just like a reflection, everything is reversed, including logic (running helps you remain stationary, walking away from something brings you towards it, chessmen are alive, nursery rhyme characters exist, etc.).
