So begins a game of chess on a grand scale, where the inhabitants of each square have their own set of rules. In her bid to become Queen of the Chess Board, Alice takes advice - and sometimes downright criticism - from such peculiar folk as Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Lion and the Unicorn, and very helpful gnat.Even when she has earned her crown, the ordeal awaits of dinner with the Red and White Queens - and Alice learns an important lesson about not eating food you've been introduced to. This witty adaptation of Lewis Carroll's enduring children's classic boasts the much-loved Jabberwocky poem amongst its sparkling collection of gems.More

a review of hattie naylor's dramatisation
An enjoyable adaptation.
No, but then that isn't the point. I enjoyed this audio book. Some of the plot elements have been reordered, which is a little disconcerting if you know the book well. The casting is good.
John Bird and John Fortune as particularly fun as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.
