Gemma Arterton reads Lewis Carroll's magical sequel to Alice in Wonderland. It's mid-winter, the snow is falling against the window, and Alice is learning how to play chess when, on a whim, she goes to the mirror and pretends her black kitten is the Red Queen and suddenly everything changes...
When Alice enters the looking glass world nothing is quite as it seems. She meets Humpty Dumpty, the Red and White Queens and of course Tweedledum and Tweedledee. She hears the sad fate of the oysters in The Walrus and the Carpenter and puzzles over the strange words of Jabberwocky; she meets talking mutton and a knitting sheep - and finds herself appearing as a live pawn in a real chess match.
Through the Looking Glass follows Alice on her curious adventure in Carroll's fantastical and extraordinary world.
