BEYOND THE MIRRORS OF TIME AND SPACE, ALICE MEETS OTHER YOUNG HEROINES WHO RESEMBLE HER, IN A JOURNEY FULL OF FANTASY AND SEEDS OF SCIENCE.
Alice has grown up a lot since she fell down the rabbit hole. She is 7 and a half years old today, almost the « age of reason ». But what is when it comes to Lewis Carroll and his boundless imagination? On the borders of logic and nonsense, of the real and the absurd, of poetic and scientific, Carroll provides a taste for language games and the unknown. This adventure, so fantastic, caters to all ages and all cultures with the same flavor. This time our young heroine is not experiencing an accidental fall, but a determined exploration: that of crossing the mirror and its inverted world. It takes courage and curiosity to take this journey and Alice is not lacking in it, because in the face of the boredom of reality, she knows the salvation of summoning the worlds of the miraculous and the marvelous, of opening her eyes wide to everything that is not "déjà vu".
