I LOVED this!!
To be fair, I am trash for retellings and Alice in Wonderland is probably my favorite children’s classic (tied with Anne of Green Gables), so Alice retellings I am particular to.
This particular Twisted Tale picks up 11 years after Alice fell down the rabbit hole. She’s not had heard hide nor hair of Wonderland. She’s frustrated with the politics of England and how hateful the influential are of women and those not there. When developing previous photos, she sees her past friends from Wonderland lurking in the shadows. Can she help Wonderland AND her city?
Again, I enjoyed it! I have read Heartless, The Looking Glass Wars, Return to Wonderland, and am working on Christina Henry’s Alice series. I find that this tale is DEFINITELY lovingly written by someone who adores Wonderland and wanted to stay true to Lewis Carroll.
Buy this book for yourself or, if you’re twisted, for a stuffy relative who doesn’t abide by Nonsense!
