Through The Looking Glass is the sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. It is based on his meeting with another Alice, Alice Raikes. Set some six months later than the earlier book, Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it. The book takes a look at the world of the mirror and the world beyond it. Reflections, distortions, and fantasy are major ingredients in this wonderful book, which brings together the worlds of the child and the adult. Sparkling characters are found in the narrative, ranging from Humpty Dumpty to the Red Queen to the Unicorn. The story opens on a snowy, wintry 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.

Rudyard Kipling

Born on December 30,1865 in Bombay, India, Joseph Rudyard Kipling was of the most-acclaimed writers, of both prose and verse, of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He spent his early childhood in India. Apart from his poems for children, Kipling is remembered for his tales and poems about British Soldiers in India. His most famous works include The Jungle Book, Kim, Just So Stories, the Man Who Would Be King, If and The White Mans Burden. Kiplings significant contribution to the field of literature won him the Nobel Prize in 1907, making him the first English language writer, and the youngest till this date, to receive the prize. He died on January 18, 1936.
