Retelling of Alice in an African setting: the Dodo becomes a hornbill, the Cheshire Cat is a serval and instead of being asked why a Raven is like a Writing Desk, we are asked to ponder why a hyena is like a baobab tree. The Dormouse’s story is now about Anansi and Onini the python.

From the blurb:

An African retelling of the classic Wonderland story. Join Alice as she follows the white rabbit down the tunnel under the acacia tree!

The Economist: Twitterdum and Twaddledee

The Economist: Twitterdum and Twaddledee.

September 28th-October 4th 2019 edition. Cover depicts Trump and Johnson as Tweedledum and Tweedledee with Elizabeth II as the Queen of Hearts.

Features short articles on Trump’s possible impeachment (Twitterdum) and Johnson’s Westminster woes (Twaddledee):

No British institution is any longer immune to the Brexit virus. On September 24th the Supreme Court ruled that the queen herself had been led to act unlawfully when her prime minister, Boris Johnson, advised her to suspend Parliament in the run-up to Britain’s departure from the European Union (see article). Unanimous, the judges ruled that the government had not provided “any reason—let alone a good reason” for this intrusion on “the fundamentals of democracy”. The very next day MPs returned to work triumphant.

Available in newsagents or via The Ecomomist’s website.
