For some minutes Alice stood without speaking, looking out in all directions over the countryand a most curious country it was. Curled up in an armchair with her black kitten, Kitty, as Alice shares with it her ideas about a Looking-Glass House, she suddenly finds herself up on the chimney-piece, on the other side of the mirror. In a room that looks much like her own but where everything is exactly reversed, Alice sees chessmen walking around. And as she steps out of the Looking-Glass House into the garden of live flowers, she is taken to the hill by the Red Queen. I declare its marked out just like a large chess-board! Alice said at last. There ought to be some men moving about somewhereand so there are! . . . Oh, what fun it is! How I wish I was one of them! I wouldnt mind being a Pawn, if only I might jointhough of course I should like to be a Queen, best. As Alice embarks on an adventure, joining in as a pawn in the game and exploring this fantastical world of chessmen, Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, will she become a Queen?
