About Alice Takes Back Wonderland

After ten years of being told she can’t tell the difference between real life and a fairy tale, Alice finally stops believing in Wonderland. So when the White Rabbit shows up at her house, Alice thinks she’s going crazy. Only when the White Rabbit kicks her down the rabbit hole does Alice realize that the magical land she visited as a child is real. But all is not well in Wonderland.

The Ace of Spades has taken over Wonderland and is systematically dismantling all that makes it wonderful. Plain is replacing wondrous, logical is replacing magical, and reason is destroying madness. Alice decides she must help the Mad Hatter and all those fighting to keep Wonderland wonderful. But how can she face such danger when she is just a girl?

Alice must journey across the stars to unite an army. She discovers that fairy tales are real in the magical world beyond the rabbit hole. But they are not the fairy tales she knows. Fairy tales have dangers and adventures of their own, and Alice must overcome the trials of these old stories if she wants to unite the lands against Ace.

With the help of Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Snow White and heroes old and new, Alice may have the strength to take back Wonderland.

This was incredibly important for me because I felt that the essence of Wonderland was truly conveyed [...]

The book starts with the Cheshire Cat telling Alice that fairy tales are real and opens onto a scene of the Queen of Hearts shouting “Off with her head!” Alice is immediately running from the Queen’s card soldiers with the Cheshire Cat floating along with her.

While Alice is clearly confused, Cheshire Cat is plainly seeing an outside reality where Alice’s story exists alongside other stories in a different reality. Or something like that!

Cheshire Cat does [...]

Contrary to what you may have read or had read to you, Alice did not live in 1870’s England. She actually came from recently modern day Missouri, Strafford to be precise.
