Alice in Wonderland: Disney Novelisation

Alice in Wonderland: Disney Novelisation by T.T. Sutherland

Based on the film by Tim Burton, and the screenplay by Linda Woolverton.

Published by Puffin, 2010

ISBN: 978-0141330464

Product Description:

From Walt Disney Pictures and visionary director Tim Burton comes a magical re-imagining of one of the most beloved stories of all time. Mia Wasikowska stars as 19-year-old Alice, who returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl, reuniting with her childhood friends: the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Dormouse, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, and of course, the Mad Hatter. Alice embarks on a fantastical journey to find her true destiny and end the Red Queen’s reign of terror.

From the cover:

Just beyond our world lies a place where madmen share their tea with hares and dormice. A queen enjoys a tyrannous reign, while terrifying beasts and immaterial felines roam her kingdom. There is a simple way into this world, and a young woman named Alice has found it. Join her as she travels down the rabbit hole and into a place called Underland.

Based on the frankly meh film. And why call it Alice in Wonderland, when that’s what most people think the original is called? I suspect this’ll get bought in error by people looking for the ‘proper’ Alice. What a disappointment they’ll get…
