Review: Beware the Little White Rabbit #LeapBooks




Beware the Little White Rabbit



Curiosity often leads to trouble...

Thirteen powerful voices in young adult fiction invite you to journey into startling new Wonderlands in this nod to the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s timeless character, ALICE. 

Mystery. Madness. Mayhem. Each story in this collection will intrigue, bewitch, and enchant. Through rich historicals, castles and keeps, wild wormholes, secret workshops, deadly plagues, and gritty urban explorations, we present new tales of Alice and her white rabbit. 

Whether an intrepid reporter, a would-be car thief, or the last human in a world ruled by machines, at the heart of each story Alice is a girl discovering who she really is in worlds that never fail to surprise.

What wonders await, oh curious reader? Leap down the rabbit hole and discover the truth...






REVIEW


I believe every author, no matter what genre they prefer to master their craft in, has a common goal of provoking their reader’s imagination and allowing them to escape into another world; another life. Lewis Caroll’s Alice’s Adentures in Wonderland certainly did that, and if the stories within the pages of this book are anything to go by, imaginations were set alight with the most magical tales.

Some macabre, some malevolent like the Red Queen, and others as mad as the Hatter himself, this was a spectacular blend of twisted tales that embraced the characters of a much loved classic. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them, and there is definitely a story for every type of reader within this book. And the amazing artwork that accompanies these stories also deserves a special mention.


This was a fantastic celebration of a masterpiece.
