I'm loving it already! I'm sad that Nursery Crimes is coming to an end, but I cannot wait to experience this adventure! :D
A wonderful start to a Wonderland adventure!

So glad you liked the first one. This book will more or less follow the original story-line only in poems. After that I'm planning a trilogy set in a very different Wonderland. Thanks for giving this a read, Jeff.

Thanks, Doc. This one will more or less stick to the plots of the originals but hopefully I'll be able to make the poems a bit weird and entertaining!

I haven't logged in at Booksie for a while due to so much schoolwork. I've been so stressed for the past months but I put on my socks, made hot cocoa, and checked out what I missed. I'm so glad this is the first one I read. I can't wait to read the rest of this book, Hulla! I'm happy now. :D

Thanks, Mike. Don't tell anyone but I'd never read the original until starting on this. I think it will end up having a lot of poems in it.

This will be poems following the plot of the original Alice books, Sue. I've never read them before so I'll be writing them as I read.

I'm a huge fan of Alice in wonderland. I liked how innocent the poem turned into, like a typical walk for her, then a spark of excitement, something intrigues her to follow something fascinating. I'm curious of what leads her to a not so ordinary day.

Thank you so much for reading. This is a poetic retelling of the original version and has been approved of by the Lewis Carroll society. I hope you'll read more and enjoy it!
