Helen Oxenbury is one of the foremost illustrators working in children's books today. She has received many awards, including the Kate Greenaway Medal for her 1999 illustrated retelling of Alice in Wonderland. Now she brings the same warmth and charm to her illustrations for Lewis Carroll's companion volume, Alice Through the Looking Glass, which was originally published in 1871. Here is Alice once again, dressed in her bright blue jumper and ready for adventure. Oxenbury's art is the perfect accompaniment for children encountering Carroll's comical and magical masterpiece for the first time. Full-color illustrations and whimsical line drawings bring readers right into the Looking-Glass world with its amazing characters, including Humpty Dumpty and Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Deborah Hopkinson's picture book, Apples to Oregon, was recently named a finalist for the Oregon Book Award.
