Customer Reviews - Alice Through the Looking-Glass
Robert Ingpen's illustrations are a continual delight. In Alice Through the Looking Glass (Templar GBP16.99) the illustrator has plenty of scope for his talent as he, with the reader, enters into Lewis Carroll's topsy-turvy game of live chess. This edition of the classic novel is a treasure full of sumptuous illustrations, making it an excellent choice of Christmas gift. -- Jane Sandell * The Scotsman *
