One sunny day, Alice follows a White Rabbit down a rabbit hole … and into Wonderland! Wonderland is a very strange place and lots of very strange people live there. Alice has some wonderful adventures with the Mad Hatter, the March Hare and the Cheshire Cat. And she even plays a game of croquet with the frightening Queen of Hearts!
One day, Alice climbs through the big Looking-glass above the fire… and into Looking-glass Land. Here, everything is back to front and the garden is a giant chessboard. The Red Queen tells Alice that when she reaches the eighth square, she can be a queen, too. Will Alice reach the eighth square and become queen?
