Looking-Glass House: The Lost Manuscript of “Through the Looking-Glass” by Lewis Carroll

Many autors have attempted to write stories in ‘Wonderland’ style, pretending them to be recently recovered ‘lost’ stories by Lewis Carroll. This book is different. It is Carroll’s original “Through the Looking Glass” tale, but in a ‘lost format’.

looking-glass-house“Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” first appeared as a manuscript called “Alice’s Adventures Underground“. It was written purely for the amusement of Lewis Carroll’s child-friend Alice Liddell, without any intention to publish it, and it had his own drawings in it. He gave the manuscript to her as a Christmas present.

Book review: Alice in Wonderland – an illustrated journey through time

Are you fond of Disney’s takes on the ‘Alice’ stories? Then you’ll certainly enjoy this heavily illustrated book by Mark Salisbury. It provides a ‘behind the scenes’ look, with photo’s and fun facts, for all of Walt Disney’s Alice in Wonderland related productions – from his ‘Alice comedies’ in the 1920’s, to his 1951 cartoon movie, to the more recently released live action movies directed by Tim Burton and James Bobin.

frontDisney Editions published this book in April 2016. I didn’t know it was coming out, or I’d have bought it sooner!

“Alice in Wonderland – an illustrated journey” by Mark Salisbury is a book about Walt Disney’s history with the Alice in Wonderland books. It starts with a short history of the books, and continues by telling us about how fond Walt Disney was of Carroll’s stories, how he strugled to start his own company, and how his career advanced.

Movie review: Alice Through the Looking Glass

After the succes of Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” movie, it was just a matter of Time before Disney produced a sequel: “Alice Through the Looking Glass”. This time, it was directed by James Bobin. I went to see it yesterday and… I was disappointed.

First of all, let me say that I didn’t enjoy the first “Alice in Wonderland” movie either. But because I didn’t want to be a prejudiced sour puss, I kept that in mind when I entered the cinema. I figured that, if I would anticipate a similar movie, just with a different story, I would be able to judge it for what it was.

However, the movie still managed to disappoint. It is not just that I am too much of a die-hard Carroll fan to appreciate this kind of movie; my non-Alice loving friends who joined me, were also disappointed because of the lack of a proper story.
