From the best-selling author of Wicked comes a magical new twist on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll's beloved classic. When Alice toppled down the rabbit hole 150 years ago, she found a Wonderland as rife with inconsistent rules and abrasive egos as the world she left behind. But what of that world? How did 1860s Oxford react to Alice's disappearance?

I have loved all of the books in the Wicked series and along with Mirror Mirror. I wish I had bought Confessions of an Ugly Stepdaughter instead of this book. It was extremely difficult to find a story amongst all the words in this book. Normally I enjoy the wordsmith abilities of Gregory Maguire but normally there is an intricate storyline being weaved with all of his words. In this case it mostly just words. I'm sorry I bought this book both because it wasn't enjoyable and it tarnished my admiration of the author.
