"Alice's second set of adventures takes her into a world even
curiouser than Wonderland. She finds herself caught up in the great
looking-glass chess game and sets off to become a queen. It isn't
as easy as she thinks: at every step she is hindered by nonsense
characters who crop up and insist on reciting poems. Some of these,
such as ""The Walrus and the Carpenter"" and ""Jabberwocky"", have
become as famous as the Alice stories themselves."
