I liked it because the author illustrates that it is possible to be stronger and braver as a result of our past.
Chris Pavesic’s Wonderland is set in the U.S. and references modern events. You will see all of the characters that you know and love from Carroll’s work, but they are in relatable forms for those of us “across the pond.” For example, the Tea Party takes place at a sorority house during pledge week. The dormouse is a pledge from a near-by fraternity who has overindulged in alcohol. One of his “brothers” has used a Sharpie marker to draw a mouse nose and whiskers on his face. Can I imagine this happening in modern-day America? Unfortunately yes.
This is not a book for very young children (I would say teen to adult.) It touches on issues of child abuse, child neglect, bullying, peer pressure, and persecution of people due to race/gender issues. Yet the overall message is positive and life affirming. Wonderland is a book about the beauty and the complexity inherent in the human condition. It is about fate, love, friendship, and the power of the human spirit to rise above injustice. It is about recognizing how wonderful and miraculous it is that we are alive.
The writing is beautiful, the characters are complex and thoroughly developed and the story is fascinating. All of it together creates a world you don't want to leave when the book ends. I am so glad I discovered this author and I cannot wait for her next book.
