In Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, she meets a variety of wonderful creatures, including Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Cheshire Cat, the Caterpillar, the Mad Hatter, and the Queen of Hearts—who, with the help of her enchanted deck of playing cards, tricks Alice into playing a bizarre game of croquet. Her adventures continue in Through the Looking-Glass, which is loosely based on a game of chess and includes Carroll’s famous poem “Jabberwocky.”
