Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, appeared 150 years ago this year. Lewis Carroll’s fantastical book takes Alice off through the looking-glass on a second adventure, to a place even stranger than the Wonderland of her first.

Following on from his exquisite edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the brilliant illustrator and former children’s laureate Chris Riddell, has now brought Through the Looking Glass – and more of Lewis Carroll’s iconic characters – to vibrant, colourful life.

We are delighted to welcome back Chris to Wimbledon BookFest as he live-illustrates this masterpiece of nonsense.

Suitable for those aged 8 and above. Children should be accompanied by a ticket hlding adult.

Every pair of tickets will include a copy of Through the Looking Glass (Hb: £25)
