Cheshire has left Wonderland, and he doesn't want Alice to forgot, because he knows a thing or two that Alice doesn't.
All at once, vulnerable and strong, Alice is good at keeping at secrets, but she can't keep Wonderland out forever, especially when Wonderland wants her in. Alice stays true to the character of the original Alice, even as this novel is established in modern era. Cheshire, true to his cat nature, is as unpredictable as only a cat can be, swinging back and forth to friendly to downright scary while staying true to his motives. This book is the most superb Alice in Wonderland novel I have ever found, and I believe a worthy official sequel. The writing is clear and powerful and the Wonderland characters are exactly who their meant to be. Alice character and development is slow and steady, exploring her internal strengths and pain as she is coerced to being the perfect sane daughter and being forced to trying to understand madness from Wonderland and the sudden sense that Wonderland is making. Terrible, logical sense that is destroying Wonderland from the inside out.
This books deserves far more than five stars, but this review will have to do. If you wish to read anything Wonderland, or even something that will pull you in and truly make you feel...
Unfortunately, a purple-haired boy appears at the school, revealing himself to be the Cheshire Cat. He speaks in riddles about how Wonderland is a much different place than when Alice last visited and tempts her with a visit back.
Lisle managed to modernize the world in and around Wonderland in a way that doesn’t detract from the story. It feels like a legitimate expansion of the original and, though a children’s book, is not boring or cumbersome for the adult side of the reader equation. It’s a very quick and easy read. The quality of prose is engaging, and the book has great pacing overall.
Alice is an easy character to cheer on. Her moments of doubt and her bout of nerves when meeting new people are easily relatable during the target age-range for this book, and her strength makes her all the more endearing. The supporting cast, Adrianna and her brothers specifically, feel like parallels of characters in Wonderland—so they are at once new and familiar. The Cheshire Cat himself seems to represent the changes in Wonderland. As the story progresses, Cat’s actions mirror in the normal world the changes occurring in Wonderland.
There are, of course, familiar faces in Wonderland, as well. As Alice goes through Wonderland she begins to see the changes of which the Cheshire Cat hinted. Although she is more prepared for Wonderland this time around, the changes present fresh new problems for Alice to navigate.
Updated version of Alice in Wonderland. Well afterward anyway.
Alice is finally able to go to school. She's nervous about making friends and slipping up about Wonderland.
The Cheshire Cat shows up and wants he to go back for her half birthday. But Wonderland is not how she remembers it.
I adored this book.
Alice is wonderful and strong.
I super interested about what happened to Lori. And how Adrianna's brother fit.
I thought that Alices and Adriannas friendship was sweet and so far very loyal.
The Cheshire Cat is totally bonkers and alot aggressive.
A great fast paced story, with awesome worldbuilding.
I just wanted to put the quote.
