"In another moment Alice was through the glass, and had jumped lightly down into the Looking-glass room. The very first thing she did was to look whether there was a fire in the fireplace, and she was quite pleased to find that there was a real one, blazing aways as brightly as the one she had left behind. "So I shall be as warm here as I was in the old room, thought Alice: "warmer, in fact, because there'll be no one here to scold me away from the fire. Oh, what fun it'll be, when they see me through the glass in here, and can't get me!"

"The she began looking about, and noticed that would could be seen from the old room was quite common and uninteresting, but that all the rest was as different as possible..."

Through The Looking Glass is a classic children's novel, first published in 1871. It is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and follows Alice as she travels to a fantastical world on the other side of a mirror. There, she encounters talking chess pieces, nursery rhyme characters, and a mysterious Jabberwock. The novel is full of wordplay, puzzles, and whimsical imagery, and is considered one of the most influential works of literature in the English language.

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898) was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a British author, mathematician, and photographer. He was born in Daresbury, Cheshire, and was the eldest boy in a large family of 11 children. He showed a talent for inventing games and stories to amuse his siblings and himself. He studied mathematics at Christ Church, Oxford, where he later became a lecturer. He is best known for his two classic children's books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass (1871), which were inspired by his friendship with Alice Liddell, the daughter of the dean of Christ Church. He also wrote poems, such as The Hunting of the Snark (1876), and puzzles.
