Publisher's Summary

Ken Campbell, Windsor Davies, John Bird, and John Fortune star in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.

When Alice's wish to visit the Looking Glass world comes true, she can't resist delving deeper and deeper into a land of caustic characters and twisted logic.

So begins a game of chess on a grand scale, where the inhabitants of each square have their own set of rules. In her bid to become Queen of the Chess Board, Alice takes advice - and sometimes downright criticism - from such peculiar folk as Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Lion and the Unicorn, and very helpful gnat.

Even when she has earned her crown, the ordeal awaits of dinner with the Red and White Queens - and Alice learns an important lesson about not eating food you've been introduced to.

This witty adaptation of Lewis Carroll's enduring children's classic boasts the much-loved Jabberwocky poem amongst its sparkling collection of gems.

An enjoyable adaptation.

Would you consider the audio edition of Alice Through the Looking Glass (Dramatised) to be better than the print version?

No, but then that isn't the point. I enjoyed this audio book. Some of the plot elements have been reordered, which is a little disconcerting if you know the book well. The casting is good.

What about uncredited’s performance did you like?

John Bird and John Fortune as particularly fun as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.

a review of hattie naylor's dramatisation

Hattie Naylor's BBC adaptation from 2000 is execellent, and although some of the events are switched around from the novel, it works well. The cast, particularly the actor who played Alice are fantastic. Naylor also adapted Carroll's Alice's adventures in Wonderland in 1996 for the BBC, which was also very good.
