The Looking Glass Wars
The Looking Glass Wars #1
an alternate “take” on Alice in Wonderland. Alyss is a young princess in Wonderland. Her parents, the King and Queen, are deposed by Alyss’s Aunt Redd. Alyss escapes to our world, lives there for 13years, and then comes back and rescues Wonderland. Twists Alice in Wonderland into something completely different. A very cool idea. However, this book is a bit shallow. It was like looking at snapshots. Alyss at 7, Alyss at 14, Alyss at 20. No character development, even though Beddor does “try”. It comes up VERY lacking when compared to the original, which is too bad. I think that a younger, less experienced mind would appreciate this story more. Wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, too much glitter and glazz without the substance to make the g&g palatable.
