Section 6 Notes:

Intro- should be "Chapter 6 of Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carol"; heard "Alice Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carol"

2:25- missing word Dumpty in "Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty in his place again" (this mistake doesn't change the meaning of the text at all but since it was a rhyme I wanted to mention it in case you'd like to be word perfect on rhymes/poems)

3:04- "Of course it must" is repeated

7:44- "One can't perhaps" is repeated

15:50- heard "And a long way behind it on each side"; text reads "And a long way beyond it on each side"

End- there are 6 seconds of silence at the end instead of 5

BTW I love Humpty's voice!

Section 7 Notes:

4:36- "This young lady loves you with an H" is repeated

7:16- "They're at it again" is repeated

8:01- "Yes" is repeated which isn't a big deal but there is a pause between them which made it stand out

8:27- missing "Some gave them white bread"

18:19- "Do you like plum-cake monster?" is repeated

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (also known as Alice Through the Looking-Glass or simply Through the Looking-Glass) is an 1871 novel by Lewis Carroll and the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). 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.

Alice becomes a player in a game of chess and works her way up to becoming a queen. On her way across the board she meets Tweedledum and Tweedledee, recites the classic poems, "Jabberwocky" and "The Walrus and the Carpenter", amongst many more. She also demonstrates her ability at mathematics to her new found friends, the red and white queens.

The mirror that Alice ventured through is still on display in Charlton Kings, Gloucestershire. Do not let your children to close!!!

I take it, that's the new summary/intro. :)

In a recording I made recently, there was a reference to Tenniel: "The act speaks volumes, and ought to be worth a cartoon by Tenniel as a lesson for thousands." 8-)

I agree. Perhaps we should add......

Before the link to his Images

Warning!! Do not listen to this audio recording without looking at these classic images by 'John Tenniel', they will put everything into reverse perspective.

Ha! Okay.

I did take the liberty of adding the text about the illustrations that you had on Alice in Wonderland. This will work as well or better. :)
