Down the rabbit hole . . .
I’m spending the day with my best friends, Frankie and Robin, and — UGH — snobby Penny. I’m not expecting anything magical to happen, until Frankie falls into a mysterious hole behind Penny’s house . . . and we all wind up in the story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland!
I’ve visited fairy tales before. But in Wonderland, everything is topsy-turvy. There are potions that make you grow, cakes that make you shrink, bossy caterpillars, and a horrible Queen of Hearts who wants to put us on trial.
Now we have to:
– Solve a riddle from the Cheshire cat
– Attend a wacky tea party with the Mad Hatter
– Become BFFs with Alice
– And find Frankie
. . . Or we’ll be stuck in Wonderland for good!
This special edition is extra-long, extra-enchanting, and comes with puzzles, games, and a Q&A with the author!
This is the first special edition of the Whatever After series.
This story is different because Abby enters a story with her friends, instead of her brother. It’s also the first time she enters a story that isn’t a fairytale.
There were some other ways that this story was different from the other books in the series. The girls follow Alice’s adventure backwards. They don’t end up meeting Alice until the end. That part made sense for this plot, because Abby’s friends had to go on the journey along with Abby. It would have been very confusing to have five girls as main characters traveling through this adventure.
I really enjoyed this book. I hope there are other special editions in the future!
