This week, we continue with Alice's journey through the Looking Glass Land, where everything is backwards, or opposite, or just plain odd. The theme of opposites seems to have been important for Lewis Carroll - Alice's journey to Wonderland began outside on a warm spring day, whereas her travels in Looking Glass Land began inside on a cold autumn one. The theme of playing cards was pervasive in Wonderland, whereas Looking Glass Land features chess. Now we meet Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee. What will that hold for Alice?
