Teenage Alice didn’t mean to end up on Wonderland, but the living spaceship she commandeered had other plans, and he was very late.

Abandoned on an unfamiliar planet, Alice’s first day as a space pirate has fallen into madness. Caterpillars? Mad hatters? A Jabberwock? A queen known for chopping off heads? Alice must face all Wonderland can throw at her if she’s to take back possession of The White Rabbit and leave Wonderland in one piece.

Wonderland is an Alice in Wonderland fairy tale retelling full of action, adventure, and unlikely heroes. While the Intergalactic Fairy Tales take place in the same universe, and occasionally have overlapping characters, these books can be read and enjoyed in any order.

bookreview
Wonderland by Robert McKay is a futuristic, science fiction retelling that gives us a whole new perspective on Alice. I was intrigued when I read the description and, being a fan of Alice, I knew I wanted to check this one out. I thought that it was an interesting and unique retelling. The author is imaginative and I was impressed with the descriptions and the set-up of this version of Wonderland. The beginning seemed a bit rushed. I felt Alice seemed much older than 13. I enjoyed the story and would be interested in reading further stories in the Intergalactic Fairy Tale series.
