This is an excellent collection of stories based on Alice in Wonderland, All of them were interesting, entertaining and drew you in...It takes talent to write a good short story, and these authors nailed it....Quite enjoyable and narrated perfectly...I recommend!!!
Just Another Audiobook Addict! Love listening to all types of romances, but occasionally need a good Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or a book with humor!
Alice in Wonderland was one of my favorite stories growing up and I don't how many times, I read, listened, and watched it! So when I had the opportunity to listen to these different versions of Alice, I could not pass it up!
Each one of these stories was very entertaining, creative and unique and the narrator did an amazing job on each of the stories!

Yes. I loved the fact that you could go to any story to listen to it again. It is a great book for when you have only a little bit of time. I don't think an story was more than 30 minutes or so.
Alice, of course, in all of her different interpretations!
Ms. Angell's narration was wonderful. Since this is an anthology, she was able to present each story with the unique spin that it required. She made you think that you were in England, in Southern Florida and even in the middle of the universe.

This was such a treat to listen to. Ms. Angell made each story unique with her choices in narrative style. Truly a talented woman!
It's hard to pick my favorite! There were many genres represented so there is a story for everyone. I've even found some new authors to check out!
I highly recommend this anthology!
You would think it would be easy to pick a favorite story out of an anthology. Not so in Beware The Little White Rabbit.
From hyperspeeding through a wormhole in space, to taking a joy ride to an amusement park in central Florida, Alice and that Little White Rabbit has and adventure for every taste.
Rhiannon Angell was the perfect choice for this audio anthology. With her range of dialects, she was able to give life to each character in every story without becoming monotonous.
I listen to audio books almost every day, with the help of noise canceling headphones, as I carve with a chainsaw. Beware The Little White Rabbit is now on my list of favorites I know I will be revisiting time and time again.
Great stories and a great production.
This book falls in the average range for me.
They Call Me Alice was a story that felt very heart felt for me. I even started to tear up at the end. It's not my normal story style, but was well done.
Broken Tethers is one of a few of the stories I really enjoyed with how Alice came to the magical world. It's a modern way but very believable. It's well written to fit the character and her curious ways.
The Watchmaker's Ball - This story feels like it's another adventure for Alice in a magical wonderland world, but with clockworks. The author pulled a few items from the world of Wonderland but the story isn't held strictly to the Alice in Wonderland feel. It's a story of it's own in a clockwork world. It has a similar feel of the original story once you get through it too.
With being an anthology there were a few that I really enjoyed.
I would. The magnificent thing with this anthology in audio form is immediately seeing how vast the narrators voice is. She slips into different persona's and emotions with each story.
The book did bring me to an awareness of the plague in England. Something I hadn't read about in some time. The stories are NOT all about the plague but two do touch on it in their story.
There are different settings for Alice here and They Call Me Alice did have me tear up at the end.
Each story has something the Alice's need to work through or learn. There is something, even small, that bothers them about their self or the world they are in and through following the white rabbit they learn there is something better at the other end of the tunnel. There is something for living in the world and working through it all or even, in some cases, that things aren't as bad as they had thought.
This book of Alice tales can be read by young readers and young adults just as well as adults. We all enjoy Alice and her adventures. This book adds more to that setting, and even has a few lessons to share as well.
I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
I enjoyed most of these shorts,though not all.They all contain an Alice and much imagination.
Narrated nicely by Rhiannon Angell.I was given this copy free for an honest review.
This is a wonderfully creative and entertaining anthology of “Alice” and the White Rabbit spin-off tales. My rating 4.5.
This is a really fun collection of thirteen stories which spring from Alice in Wonderland and the white rabbit. At least one Amazon review gives a summary of each title so I am not going to do so beyond the brief descriptions here. I cannot name one favorite as I enjoyed so many but my favorites included: Alice through the Wormhole (Alice chasing a rabbit in space); They Call Me Alice (an adopted Chinese girl trying to fit in America); Alice, Last of the Beating Hearts (human Alice in a world of tech); Rabbit Fever (Alice in plague infested time); The Aviary (another Alice in a time of plague with a different problem); Broken Tethers (Alice meets men from various eras after chasing after the rabbit, of course); Undercover Alice (a teen Alice goes undercover for a school newspaper, helping the white rabbit); and Follow the Steam Rabbit (a bright young Alice learns from her Uncle about the dangers of creations). The others are good too and include sweet and creepy elements. Many of the stories have steampunk features.
I found each story unique and creative, making an entertaining package. The genre is linked with "teen" but don't let that deter you. Anyone who has a soft spot for Alice in Wonderland should enjoy this imaginative collection.
Audio Notes: Rhiannon Angell does a remarkable job of narrating this collection. She skillfully changes voices and tones to fit the different stories and characters. Initially I thought there was more than one narrator. I plan to look for other books narrated by Ms. Angell.
I received this audiobook for an honest review.
Yes! I loved the different blend of stories and introduction to new authors.
Honestly, all the stories.
She does a great job of doing different voices.

This was the first anthology I ever listened to, and I have some mixed feelings on it. There are a variety of genres represented in this book. The stories are all very different, but they all contain a few elements. They seem to be a girl named Alice, a white rabbit, and a problem of some kind that Alice needs to work through. Things are not always what they appear is a common theme throughout the book.
As with any collection of stories, there will be some great, and some not so great. My favorites were mostly the ones that did not feel like a straight up retelling of the original story, but rather a completely new take with a few key details included. Rhiannon Angell was an amazing narrator. By providing the voices for all these stories, and all these characters, we really see how talented she is! If she had not had such a wide range of voices, the audiobook would have ended up very boring. She really brought life to this book, and I am very impressed with the outcome!
