LoveReading View on Through the Looking Glass Little Folks Edition

Little books are somehow irresistible and this one is particularly appealing, both dainty and handsome with its cloth cover, gold sprayed edges and creamy paper. A shortened version of the original story, it contains the episodes most likely to appeal to young readers – including of course Tweedledum and Tweedledee – and also features thirty of Tenniel’s illustrations, which are just as jewel-like in this small size.
