Alice Threw the Looking Glass

Alice Threw the Looking Glass by James Roberts White, in Three Way Plays.

Hardback, no illustrations.

Published by Harper & Brothers 1944.

One for the obsessives only: a book of royalty free, one act plays suitable for staging, being read as ‘radio plays’, or for use in drama classes or try-outs: hence ‘three way’. The first play in the collection is an Alice themed story.

Picked up on abebooks for around a fiver, mine is an ex- library copy, complete with the old ticket and labels: Central Library, Bancroft Road E1. Which coincidentally was a haunt of mine when I used to work in the Mile End Hospital on the same road. Small world.

Alice in 2000

Alice in 2000 by Renzo Rossotti.

Illustrated by Grazia Nidasio.

Published by Ward Lock Limited, 1970.

Alice visits the planet of Meringue, drops in on a constellation or two, finds out where time is made and gets a special golden dress (that’s the extra picture: I couldn’t resist scanning another one in). I really don’t remember the year 2000 being like this…

The illustrations are really wonderful and they remind me of some of the picture books I had as a child, most particularly The Forgotten Teddy Bear. At least, I think that’s what it was called: Mum, do you remember it?

Available on amazon: Alice in 2000
