Caption

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) is a novel by Lewis Carroll, the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). Set six months later than the earlier book, Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it. The Rocking-Horse-Fly's name and form is a pun on the rocking-horse. Its body is that of a horse with black dots and wings on its back, while its legs are connected to rockers. It is made entirely of wood and rocks about. It lives on sap and sawdust. John Tenniel (February 28, 1820, February 25, 1914) was an English illustrator, graphic humourist, and political cartoonist prominent in the second half of the 19th century.
