Review

“Maguire’s characteristic tone is dark and enchanting in his newest fairy tale revision... a powerful story of hope and redemption sure to delight his fans.” -- Booklist (starred review)

“Enchanting, mystical and filled with wonder, it’s the perfect holiday fairy tale for grown-ups.” -- People

“An inventive, and often dark, retelling of the holiday classic.” -- BuzzFeed News

“Continuing his tradition of rewriting fairy tales with an arch eye and offbeat point of view, Maguire turns his attention to Lewis Carroll and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland…A brilliant and nicely off-kilter reading of the children’s classic, retrofitted for grown-ups—and a lot of fun.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
--This text refers to the paperback edition.
