After Alice

After Alice by Gregory Maguire.

Publisher: Headline (27 Oct. 2015)

ISBN:  1472230434/ 978-1472230430

From the publisher:

When Alice fell down the rabbit-hole, she found Wonderland as rife with inconsistent rules and abrasive egos as the world she left behind. But how did Victorian Oxford react to Alice’s disappearance?

Gregory Maguire turns his imagination to the question of underworlds, undergrounds, underpinnings -and understandings old and new, offering an inventive spin on Carroll’s enduring tale. Ada, a friend mentioned briefly in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, sets out to visit Alice but, arriving a moment too late, tumbles down the rabbit-hole herself. 

Ada brings to Wonderland her own imperfect apprehension of cause and effect as she embarks on an odyssey to find Alice and bring her safely home from this surreal world below the world. The White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat and the bloodthirsty Queen of Hearts interrupt their mad tea party to suggest a conundrum: if Eurydice can ever be returned to the arms of Orpheus, or if Lazarus can be raised from the tomb, perhaps Alice can be returned to life. 

Either way, everything that happens next is After Alice.

Gregory Maguire is the author of many books for children and adults, including Wicked, the story of Oz’s Wicked Witch of the West.

Alice D.

Alice D., by Cath Lorina Dodgson

Publisher: Troy Book Makers, 2017

ISBN: 1614684030, 9781614684039

Cover blurb:

On Christmas eve, 1860, eight-year-old Alice Liddell, Lewis Carroll’s original Alice, falls through the frozen Thames breaking a mirror-page in the sacred BOOK OF TIME, to end up in Atlantis. In her curiosity to decipher an obscure inscription and escape, she breaks a second mirror, letting the Gorgon Medusa out to terrify the sunken continent. Alice realises she must identify Medusa and her two immortal sisters and return them to Greece before she can go home with honour, but they,  along with the Walrus and the Carpenter and the corrupt Caterpillar frame her on a charge of eating the Oysters!

There’s a Youtube video too:
