Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it. There she finds that, just like a reflection, everything is reversed, including logic running helps you remain stationary, walking away from something brings you towards it, chessmen are alive, nursery rhyme characters exist, etc Through the Looking-Glass includes such verses as " Jabberwocky " and " The Walrus and the Carpenter ", and the episode involving Tweedledum and Tweedledee. The mirror which inspired Carroll remains displayed in Charlton Kings. Chapter One — Looking-Glass House : Alice is playing with a white kitten whom she calls "Snowdrop" and a black kitten whom she calls "Kitty" when she ponders what the world is like on the other side of a mirror's reflection. Climbing up onto the fireplace mantel , she pokes at the wall-hung mirror behind the fireplace and discovers, to her surprise, that she is able to step through it to an alternative world. In this reflected version of her own house, she finds a book with looking-glass poetry, " Jabberwocky ", whose reversed printing she can read only by holding it up to the mirror.
