This first installment to The Looking Glass Wars Trilogy is a wonderful twist on an old fairytale. The artwork engages your imagination to a less childlike world to a more sinister adaptation where the card men are metal soldiers and The Red Queens' roses bite. It is full of adventure, mystery, and fantasy.
When she is cast out of Wonderland by her evil aunt Redd, young Alyss Heart finds herself living in Victorian Oxford as Alice Liddell and struggles to keep memories of her kingdom intact until she can return and claim her rightful throne. Reprint.
