Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These days, children's books are big business. As a result, there are many authors who churn out formulaic volumes, once a year (in time for Christmas) which address their target demographic, but are otherwise totally devoid of literary value. As a grandparent, I find this regrettable.
It wasn't always thus: to take Lewis Carrol as an example - his books were perfect bedtime stories for a small child, but contained a wealth of word-play, meta-mathematical in-jokes, and general cleverness to enchant the adult reader as well; just look at the references to the Russell Paradox in the White Night's song. Alas, Lewis Carroll produced only two books and he isn't in a position to write any more.

In Mr Sheppard's introduction, he mentions that he wrote "Wonderland Revisited and the Games Alice Played There" in response to his children's request to hear more about Alice. Quite a challenge - Carroll's multi-level prose is amenable to pastiche, but to write an original work, in Carroll's style, accessible to its dual audiences of children and erudite adults, requires a very rare sort of talent.

Fortunately, Keith seems to possess that talent. After reading the first few pages of the book, I felt that I was reading a recently-discovered work by the Rev. Dodgson himself. The story was, on the surface, a perfect bedtime story for the little ones, but replete with word play, allusions to gaming, maths and various other pursuits. I read the book in two sessions, on the train to and from New York. The only reason I put it down was the need to get off the train.

Just one very minor observation - the book contains rather eccentric spellings of "can't", "won't", "shan't".
