Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Andy Weir tackles what transpires after "happily ever after." What happens to Alice when she comes back from Wonderland? Wendy from Neverland? Dorothy from Oz?

The three meet here, at Cheshire Crossing - a boarding school where girls like them learn how to cope with their supernatural experiences and harness their magical world-crossing powers. 

But the trio - now teenagers, who’ve had their fill of meddling authority figures - aren’t content to sit still in a classroom. Soon they’re dashing from one universe to the next, leaving havoc in their wake - and, inadvertently, bringing the Wicked Witch and Hook together in a deadly supervillain love match. 

To stop them, the girls will have to draw on all of their powers...and marshal a team of unlikely allies from across the magical multiverse. 

Written by the number one New York Times best-selling author of The Martian, Andy Weir, Cheshire Crossing is a funny, breakneck, boundlessly inventive journey through classic worlds as you’ve never seen them before.

Praise for Cheshire Crossing:

“Deliciously funny . . . a shrewd and spirited adaptation that will leave audiences hoping for another installment . . . Andersen’s delightful cartoon drawing style meshes perfectly with Weir’s prose, allowing the work to broaden its appeal beyond middle graders to young adults and adults.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

Editorial Review

The Cheshire-grin of children’s fiction

My skeptic-senses tingled when I heard that the writer of the best hard sci-fi book in ages, The Martian, had decided to tackle a kids’ comic book. But it looks like Andy Weir is either a prodigy or has the best editorial support imaginable (probably both) because Cheshire Crossing just works—both as a comic and a listen. This super-short tale is performed by a multitude of talented voices including Sophie Amoss, Brittany Pressley, Kristen DiMercurio, and a full cast. Kids 11 and older will enjoy it for what it is: a funny, rollicking fantasy story featuring three familiar protags from classic children’s fiction. (First names will suffice: Wendy, Alice, and Dorothy!!) Adults will love it for the pointed and clever ways their respective worlds overlap. Not sold yet? Imagine Captain Hook joining forces with the Wicked Witch of the West, and you’ll be well on your way. —Sean T., Audible Editor

cleverly interwoven Tales

At first I wasn't sure what I was going to think of it, but as it progressed the cleverness and Ingenuity of the writer began to shine. And the introduction of Miss Poole and her powers was a pleasant surprise.

Good but very short

Like I said it's a great idea but it's extremely short and frankly not worth a credit
