A little girl called Alice suddenly finds herself in the dream-like Looking-Glass world, where she seems to be a pawn in a chess game. If, as the Red Queen tells her, she can get as far as the eighth square, then she, too, can become a Queen.

As she makes her way across the chess-board, Alice finds many strange places, and meets some even stranger people: some talking flowers, twin brothers who fight over a broken toy, a well-known egg-shaped person who sits on top of a high wall, and many more.

Find out how Alice gets into this strange world, and what happens when she arrives at the eighth square.

Lewis Carroll was the eldest son in a family of nine children. He often made up funny stories for his younger brothers and sisters. Later he wrote two of the most popular children's books ever: Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

Alice in Wonderland is also available as an Oxford Progressive English Reader, Grade 1.
