Summary "In this inquiry, Ronald Reichertz, drawing examples from a wide range of children's literature, demonstrates that the Alice books are infused with conventions of and allusions to earlier works and identifies precursors of Carroll's upside-down, looking-glass, and dream vision worlds. Key passages from related books are reprinted in the appendices, making available many hard-to-find examples of early children's literature."--Jacket.
