If you've read and loved Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass book wouldn't want to miss reading about her further adventures, the strange and fantastical creatures she meets and the delightful style and word-play that made the first book so appealing. After sharing some cake with onlookers, she finds herself alone in the forest, until she is joined by two knights who fight to determine who will take her prisoner. Alice is placed as the White Queen's pawn, and begins the game by taking a train to the fourth rank, acting on the rule that pawns in chess can move two spaces on their first move. You can just see a little peep of the passage in Looking-glass House, if you leave the door of our drawing-room wide open: and it's very like our passage as far as you can see, only you know it may be quite different on beyond.

If included in the book, it would have followed, or been included at the end of, Chapter 8 — the chapter featuring the encounter with the White Knight.

I can see all of it when I get upon a chair——all but the bit just behind the Through the Looking Glass book. The Unicorn believes Alice to be a monster and tells Alice that he will believe in her if she agrees to believe in him. She undergoes many experiences that can be seen as crucial for development, such as the discovery of identity that is demanded by the situation in the wood of forgetfulness. As this writer is a tremendous fan of the book and is a bit cross with unfaithful adaptations of all kinds, I feel it is important to touch upon what made the book so great and where they went wrong taking and leaving ideas so that other adaptations will not make those same mistakes. How do you know she wasn't thirsty too?
