Details: Product Description “For some minutes Alice stood without speaking, looking out in all directions over the country—and a most curious country it was.” curled up in an armchair with her black kitten, Kitty, as Alice shares with it her ideas about a looking-glass house, she suddenly finds herself up on the chimney-piece, on the other side of the mirror. In a room that looks much like her own but where everything is exactly reversed, Alice sees chessmen walking around. And as she steps out of the looking-glass house into the garden of live flowers, she is taken to the Hill by the Red queen. “I declare it‘s marked out just like a large chess-board!” Alice said at last. “There ought to be some men moving about somewhere—and so there are!... Oh, what Fun it is! How I wish I was one of them! I couldn't mind being a pawn, if only I might join—though of course I should like to be a queen, best.” as Alice embarks on an adventure, joining in as a pawn in the game and exploring this fantastical world of chessmen, Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, will she become a queen?.
