    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll (joyfulgirl, Kerian, elbakerone)
    elbakerone: Beddor takes an alternative look at Alice's story. Fans of the original may appreciate the new telling and fans of Beddor's reworking will likely enjoy Carroll's classic.

    Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor (PghDragonMan)
    PghDragonMan: A slightly twisted version of Alice in Wonderland, perhaps even more off beat than the Tim Burton movie version.

Sadly, this one didn't click with me, and I am letting it go, unfinished, to find a new reader.

This a great twist on Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland!" It is the darker tale of what really happened in Wonderland. It is full of danger, excitement, and even romance. It is a great read! ( )

The Looking Glass Wars rediscovers the truth of Alice in Wonderland. The story that we know is quite different from the truth and Frank Beddor does an excellent job of telling that story. A captivating story I highly recommend. ( )

This book was a good take on the Alice in Wonderland story. I liked how Alyss and Hatter have to navigate in this world and how they and their friends work together to confront Redd. I look forward to reading the next book, Seeing Redd. ( )

This book was just okay. I really like the premise, but I feel it could have been presented a bit better. Mostly, it just made me want to play American McGhee's Alice. ( )

First words
Everyone thought she had made it up, and she had tolerated more taunting and teasing from other children, more lectures and punishments from grown-ups, than any eleven-year-old should have to bear.
