I wish I could get through into looking-glass house,' Alice said. 'Let's pretend that the glass has gone soft and . . . Why, I do believe it has! It's turning into a kind of cloud!' A moment later Alice is inside the looking-glass world. There she finds herself part of a great game of chess, travelling through forests and jumping across brooks. The chess pieces talk and argue with her, give orders and repeat poems . . .It is the strangest dream that anyone ever had . . .

An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Lewis Carroll original by Jennifer Bassett.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christie | 2/17/2014

    " I love "The Walrus and the Carpenter!" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krista | 2/14/2014

    " I much preferred Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland' to this story. This seemed to be trying too hard to be funny. I did like the word play, but it was similar in style to 'Alice in Wonderland' and just seemed like a younger sibling that was trying too hard. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 2/10/2014

    " Not near as good as the first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shivers | 2/4/2014

    " I loved it, it was just as wonderful and magical as the first one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mr. Weston | 2/3/2014

    " Alice's adventures are a testament to a child's imagination. Carroll's stories are cute and enjoyable, but further analysis is possible re: motifs of dreams vs. reality, rabbits, fish, and the importance of other animals and their journeys throughout the two stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 E | 1/15/2014

    " Lewis Carroll was so clever! Enjoyed it immensely. It seems this Kindle edition doesn't have the poems though (The Walrus and the Carpenter, Jabberwocky); need to look at another edition. Also, the pictures were missed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nanci | 12/30/2013

    " Again, I read this in preparation for reading The Looking Glass Wars and I think it was a good call. Again, I read this many years ago in High School and enjoyed it much more then, than I did this time around. I really think it is a good thing to be familiar with this classic tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 12/9/2013

    " All time classic. Great quotes and adventures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alissa | 12/8/2013

    " Enjoyed more than the original. Better omniscient narrative commentary :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 12/6/2013

    " I love this book! Even more so than Alice in Wonderland, the characters just jump from the prose in such a way that I'm hard pressed to put it down every time I read it; be it the 1st or 5th time! (And I'm sure many more to come) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 London | 11/23/2013

    " The Shelf: Accepted, for the Children's Section. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Princesschaos Brutile | 11/18/2013

    " this is a great read i believe your never to old for this book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darryl | 9/6/2013

    " This book was okay. You can definitely tell Mr. Carroll was a mathematician by the semantical arguments. But other than that, it was sort of boring and sort of random/psychadelic in a not-really-awesome way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 dani-elle | 6/20/2013

    " i've got a 1868 published 2nd edition of this, so technically it doesn't really have an isbn but whatevs "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hamxa Almayny | 4/20/2013

    " Well, it was not as sharp and juicy as "Wonderland", many ingredientes are not added on this story. Still, the weird scripted-like element is present however i did not feel it was fair to the prequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Reid | 4/11/2013

    " I have read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and always assumed I had also read this book, but now I'm not so sure. I am going back to find out. It will be great adventure either way! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richa | 7/29/2012

    " I got this book as a gift with a DVD of the story, I loved both the DVD and the book, I thought that it was really magical, all fantasy related and stuff. Loved it "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leanne | 6/16/2012

    " Disappointed with this version of the book. I didn't realize that all the poetry was missing and some of it was shortened. If I would have realized that earlier I probably would have bought a different version of the book instead of the free version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maren | 6/12/2012

    " I started reading this with Grace, but she lost interest and I finished it on my own. Sequels are seldom as good as the first book, as was the case here. I did enjoy it though...especially the clever poetry. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maryjoo | 5/17/2012

    " Love the daily ritual of believing in impossible things from the White Queen: "When I was your age, I always did it for half anhour a day. Why sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Story | 5/17/2012

    " I read it fairly young, and therefore didn't appreciate it the way I appreciate books now, especially books like this. Time for a reread. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noelle | 4/22/2012

    " At one point Alice says, "somehow it seems to fill my head with ideas." I think Lewis Carroll has the exact same effect on me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin Miller | 8/12/2011

    " The original Alice in Wonderland! Read this when I was pretty young. Obviously loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 5/23/2011

    " Not the most memorable book, just one of those that one should read in order to expand the imagination. Interesting writing style. Not much to be said about it really. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 5/21/2011

    " Very good for a kids book, but now that I am rereading it as an older person, I find that it has no significant plot structure. Still, it was a great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sadie | 5/20/2011

    " It was fascinating. The adventure, the poems, and the made-up words! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia | 5/19/2011

    " I've read "Alice" five or six times. It is my favorite book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 5/18/2011

    " First in a long line of classics I should have read ages ago!

    Delightful and witty, this was far more enjoyable than I expected. The puns were fantastic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yorky | 5/17/2011

    " Loved this book soooo much - its so random!! My only regret is reading it on my iphone and therefore not getting illustrations I would say if you are going to read this make sure there are pictures go along with!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire | 5/16/2011

    " It takes some perseverance to get through this, and really I checked out after the mock turtle. I don't really understand this book, the ending was abrupt and I'm just glad for disney's version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 5/16/2011

    " I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I would think twice about reading it with or to smaller children due to the queen's actions and comments. I could see how that would scare little ones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 5/15/2011

    " Reading this on my Kindle - love Lewis Carroll's way with words - unfortuneately, missing the illustrations!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 George | 5/14/2011

    " My only gripe was the way the book was written, but that's a given considering the time it was first conceived.

    A wonderful tale nonetheless (or series of tales, for that matter). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 5/13/2011

    " More than the actual plot of the story, I enjoyed watching the though process of the author unravel into such odd charters and scenarios. The dialogue was very entertaining, it made you think about the words in a different way as well. "
