Follow Alice as she goes through the looking glass into a nonsensical world of chess pieces, animals that talk, and where nothing makes sense. After, meet a little ghost who is haunting the wrong building in Phantasmagoria.  

Narrator, Allison Larkin brings Lewis Carroll's works to life with her unique voices and distinct intonation for each character. Her narration keeps pace with the author's writing without losing a beat while pulling the listener into the story. The classic is well written and is easily complemented by Larkin's narrative style. A delightful addition to any library or family's classic retelling audiobooks collection, fans of Lewis Carroll, silly books, and adventure will enjoy listening to this book.
