This is a must read for all fairy tale fans, who have dreamed of following Alice into the rabbit hole and seeing where it might lead them. There are thirteen stories, each introduced with a lovely picture and accompanied with cute little rabbits between scene changes. (Yes, I love tiny little extras like this.) The stories center around an 'Alice', a rabbit and a hole, but that's where the similarities end.
Although I honestly wondered if reading about the same main character again and again might grow repetitive, the authors take Alice through all sorts of fantastical worlds and times - from steampunk to rides into history - making each adventure new and exciting. The Alices not only had to face very different situations, but each has a distinct personality, making the characters fresh and different despite the shared name.
Summed up, this is a delightful collection of very different stories, which are just the perfect length for taking quick trips with Alice down a huge variety of rabbit holes. And several of the stories had me going back to read them again. . .and probably again.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
Kindle edition available and print copies soon to come. In the meantime, if you'd like a little sneak peek, Leap Books still excerpts and individual story art for each of the authors included in this curioser and curioser anthology.
