The Looking Glass Wars
by: Frank Beddor.
Alyss Heart is the princess of Wonderland, her mother Genevieve is the Queen, and Madigan Hatter is not mad, he is Queen Genevieve’s bodyguard.
Genevieve’s sister Redd Heart is the vicious villain. Alyss Heart, is having her 7th birthday celebrated by the Queendom; when Queen Genevieve is visited by a fortune-teller, The Blue Caterpillar, who shows Genevieve that her sister, Redd Heart might escape from her prison in the Checkerboard Desert.
My favourite parts are: the bits when Alyss, Genevieve and Redd summoned things with their imagination, when the Queendom celebrated Alyss’ birthday, Madigan fighting enemies, when Redd was crowned, and when Alyss went through the Looking Glass Maze.
I don’t want to give too much away, as this is such an amazing book series! I recommend it to everyone.
But I want you, if you are expecting a Disneyfied version of the classic tail, you will be disappointed.
