|Edith, Ina and Alice|
I have read a few but definitely far from many. It's not a secret that I thoroughly enjoyed Raven Gregory's horror take on Wonderland. For those not interested in horror or graphic novels I highly suggest Frank Beddor's series called The Looking Glass Wars. It's a fantasy/sci fy take on Wonderland that will blow you away. In Frank Beddor's Wonderland the Pool of Tears is actually a portal in-between Wonderland and Earth. Wonderland residents go missing when they jump in committing suicide because they land on Earth and are unable to figure out how to get back. However, Hatter Magidan (the Royal Guard) discovers puddles where no puddle should be will transport a person to Wonderland. Not to mention the crystal continuum where all the mirrors are actually a way to travel through Wonderland. Basically the idea of the story is that Wonderland is real, but Dodgson wrote it down all wrong and Princess Alyss is not happy about it. Oh do I love that series. So much that I may have to read it again.
Oh and lets not forget the many film adaptations. Of which I have only seen three. Disney's chopped up version, one that starred Carol Channing as the Red Queen but I cannot remember which company produced it at the moment this version is still milked down but much more complete then Disney's. I have also seen Alice the Sci-Fy networks version which is very slow but good. I actually really liked it once it started moving an hour and a half into it.

My only gripe is the cover. It's well known that the real Alice is a brunette and this story is HER story not Dodgson's character. So why is the little girl on the cover blond?
I really enjoyed this book and I suggest it... guess I will be posting comments on Goodreads. :o)
