Renée Raudman's straightforward narration of Carroll's beloved classic provides a pleasant alternative to other more theatrical renditions. LOOKING GLASS boasts many of the famous characters and poems that are at the core of the Alice mythology, such as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, “Jabberwocky,” and "The Walrus and the Carpenter." Raudman's narration is reserved but tender. She performs the prose with all of Alice's awe as she rediscovers Wonderland. Raudman’s character voices are understated and modestly effective. Still, her approach doesn't wholly fit the absurdity of Carroll's landscape. This sequel is even more bizarre and quirky than the original ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, making a zany, kaleidoscopic narration almost obligatory.
