    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland /and/ Through the Looking-Glass

    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwige Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children.
    Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There is a novel by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), the sequel to. The themes and settings of Through the Looking-Glass make it a kind of mirror image of Wonderland: the first book begins outdoors, in the warm month of May (4 May), uses frequent changes in size as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of playing cards; the second opens indoors on a snowy, wintry night exactly six months later, on 4 November (the day before Guy Fawkes Night), uses frequent changes in time and spatial directions as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of chess. In it, there are many mirror themes, including opposites, time running backwards, and so on.

    Easily my 2 favourite books ever. Discuss~

    I've only ever seen the animated film and bits of the Tim Burton film (Which I didn't like so much).

    I take it the books aren't quite like them, right?
