Have you ever wondered...

Who really stole the Queen's tarts? Whatever did become of the Walrus & the Carpenter after their nefarious jot down the briny beach with the little Oysters? Is there truly any sense to be found in nonsense at all?

Come follow Alice down the rabbit-hole once again as Lewis Carroll's timeless classic is reimagined through the lyrical language of Wonderland...where a Caterpillar dispenses an indelible lesson, a Cat offers safe haven and (fairly) sound advice, and a Hatter and Hare throw a mad tea party before matching wits at the trial of the century! 

Review: Alice in Verse is a must read for all Alice in Wonderland and poetry fans alike. The author has such a keen wit and deft hand which is beautifully expressed in the rhymes in this book. Not just a compelling re-imagining of the familiar story, but work that Mr. Carroll himself would be easily convinced was his own. The illustrations only add to the wonderment and magical atmosphere created by the author. Very highly recommended!
