"Wonderland" isn't "wonderful"; it is filled with "wonders." I can't 
think of anything that does the idea justice. {HujwI''a'} "great, 
strange things"?

Then you have to avoid the illegal Type 5 suffix in the noun phrase.

    Alice HujwI''a' puH leng

Now, "Through the Looking-glass" isn't hard (SIla' vegh), but "Through 
the Looking-glass and What Alice Found There" is a little harder. For 
obvious reasons, I'm going to transliterate Alice and not mark it. Maybe 
something like this:

    SIla' vegh 'alIS: Hoch tu'pu'bogh
