Publisher's Summary

Eleven-year-old Vincent van Gogh discovers a curious new world through a tunnel on the moor. A mysterious white rabbit introduces Vincent to Alice, and their quest begins - defeat the dreaded Jabberwock before it consumes all of Wonderland.

A slithy tove, an ill-tempered caterpillar, and the Cheshire cat meet them along the path as their adventures take them through fields dancing with flowers, tangled forests, and looking-glass pools.

But all is not what it seems in Wonderland, and Vincent may not have - and may not want - what it takes to succeed. Destroying the Jabberwock may cost more than he’s willing to give.

A wonderful retelling of a classic tale

Vincent in wonderland is, as you would expect, a retelling of Alice In Wonderland. But it is also a companion tale to C.E. White's other book, The World's Nextdoor. A say companion, because even though this is chronology a prequel, they can be read completely separate and in either order. Rather than Alice the main character of this story is Vincent Van Gogh. Yes the famous painter Vincent Van Gogh went to wonderland as a boy. Alice is there too. Only like Vincent she is also a historical person. Alice Liddell, the inspiration for Carroll's Alice. I normally disagree with using historical people in fiction because you can Google them and it ruins the illusion. This is sufficiently fantastical enough to not be confused for fact. But the brilliant life loving young man we meet in this story is somewhat over shadowed by the unfortunate way that Van Gogh's real life ended. Interestingly enough the story also seems to account for that darkness and maybe explains it a little. This is such a neat story, it plays on the wonderfully whimsical art of Van Gogh while also keeping the logic based whimsy of Carroll's children's book. So many references to Alice in wonderland appear that you will want to go back and read the classic just to be sure you got them all. David Pickering, is a wonderful narrator. He reads clearly and makes each word understandable. He also differentiates his voice between characters so that you can tell who is talking just by his voice alone. He also has an amazing british accent that is really soothing to listen to. This would be a great story for a family reading night. Enjoyed best after a family read along of the OG Alice books for maximum reference catching.

Escape with Vincent van Gogh into Wonderland

One of my favorite books (pair of books, rather) is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. I was thrilled with this reimagining of the classic tale to include Vincent van Gogh as a young man joining Alice on an adventure. The story had all the electic, magical feel of the original while adding its own flare and twists. I'm very impressed with the author and the writing style. The narrator was excellent and I highly recommend this book to fans of both Lewis Carroll and Vincent van Gogh.

Delightful!

This was such a delightful story, and be still my creative-loving heart! It had two of my favorites--Alice (in Wonderland) and with Vincent vanGogh, encountering the Cheshire cat (okay, three favorites) and the jabberwock. A fun, lighthearted read!
