The illustrator, publisher, and place publication are still the same as the first one. The Through the Looking-Glass and what Alice found there has been translated into more than 65 languages.
The sequel is dominated by the unexpected idea of Caroll, simply because he loves the idea of the kind of game. It is affected by his habit, that different from other people. He loves to do mirror-writing, and drew a person with a bead bigger than its body (clearly seen in The Red Queen”.
Some pages in this sequel are even printed in reverse. It was a unique and new idea but leads to trouble and the books price was too high. So only the Jabberwocky was reversed.
Due to its fame, people started to question those questions. They wondered if was Alice a real person. Yes, she was. Alice is Lewis’s best friend in his childhood named Alice Lidell. They even shared the same name!
The real Alice and the other Alice have the same character. Stubborn, eager to do something, and full of curiosity. Simply because Lewis writes the other Alice as the real Alice. Lidell has a short bob, and brunette hair and that’s totally different from the other Alice's appearance. That’s how Sir John illustrated her.
It was totally a fairy tale, so all the characters in the book, storyline, and event are fiction. Some places in the books really exist in these words. The story setting is based in London. So it might be described in the movie or even the books.
