Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 9 to 12.

Posing as an Historian Emeritus, MacKenzie has placed an official letter inside the front cover of the book explaining that she has found the journal written by Princess Alyss, the true Alice in Wonderland, and that Charles Dodgson betrayed the young princess in his famous books. The title page warns readers that only those who wish to know the truth should continue. The princess is introduced as HRI (Her Royal Imaginer). The journal begins on Valentine's Day, 1863, four years after Alyss escaped from Wonderland on her seventh birthday, due to the threat of a ferocious cat and her Evil Aunt Redd. Dashing through a looking glass and falling into The Pool of Tears, she suddenly appears on the streets of London. She is found with some street urchins and taken to the Charing Cross Orphanage. Soon thereafter she is adopted into the unimaginative Liddell family. Thinking Dodgson is a true friend who understands her plight, she tells him her life story, but he gets it all wrong when he writes it down. The pages of this oversize book are very "busy" with journal entries, notes from MacKenzie, colorful illustrations, sketches, documents, maps, small envelopes containing notes, and black-and-white photographs. Most of the text is written in script, with varying font sizes adding to the overall confusion. The audience for the book is not clear. The padded cover and the removable pieces would not be practical for library collections. Perhaps adults who are fond of Alice will want to share this alternative view of Alyss with specific children. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.

    I fell in love with Frank Beddor's Alyss Heart in THE LOOKING GLASS WARS. If you're a fan of the story, then you'll be impressed with this scrapbook, which includes beautiful illustrations, fun little cards, pull-out flaps, and more.<BR/><BR/>Don't come into PRINCESS ALYSS OF WONDERLAND looking for a lot more information on the story, though. This is a companion of sorts to Frank Beddor's story of Alyss, Hatter Madigan, Dodge Anders, The Cat, the city of Wonderland, and Redd. <BR/><BR/>It's a beautifully designed compendium of letters to and from Alyss and journal type entries, but doesn't tell you a lot more than what you already learned in the first book. But if you put it together with THE LOOKING GLASS WARS and SEEING REDD, the second book in the series, this is a fine addition to your library.

    buyer beware, they do not care for quality,just MONEY, SERIOUSLY? :(

    when i went to purchase i saw they advertised this was a first edition "NEW!" "NEW ITEM SHIPS IMMEDIATELY!!!" and that is word for word from the "condition" of the book to the item "description". when i recieve the package (this book was the only single thing i ordered,only this book,1 thing)i noticed the there wes NO damage to the packaging what so ever. i opened itwith my hands,didnt use any tools,i 1st noticed when i looked at the book that the spine was in such poor shape it looked as if it had been a school text book for atleast a year. upon opening i went throught the pages as it was an interactive book with envelopes containing 1pg letters & other removable & movable parts to it.i noticed with extreme disappointment that 2 of the "Letters" were missing from thier envelopes. when i got to the back cover there was a large envelope that looked as if it once had been sealed, with the seal sticker on the top flap& covered in crud couldn't stick to the envelope to keep it closed. in this envelope were 2 designated pockets for cards to play a game with only 1CARD inside this 2pocket envelope which was the instructions to the game saying:split the deck.alyss versus alice. EACH player is dealt 13CARDS. which can only mean there was a minimum of !!!26!!!CARDS MISSING from this book. so in short me complaints are as follows:
    1)BACK COVER HAS 1GASH THAT GOES OVER THE COMPLETE LENGTH OF THE BOOK
    &1 MOR RIGHT NECT TO IT THAT GOES FRON THE TOP TO 1/2 WAY DOWN,BOTH
    OF WHICH ARE EXTREMELY HARD TO MISS!!
    2)BOTH TO AND BOTTOME CORNERS OF THE BOOKS SPINE WERE EXTREMELY WORN,
    TORN, FRAYED, PUCKERED/SMASHED!
    3)2 MISSING LETTERS FROM THEIR ENVELOPES(I CHECKED GOOGLE WHAT
    EXACTLY SHOULD BE INCLUDED INSIDE THIS BOOK BTW!!!)
    4)BACK COVERS ENVELOPE SHOULD BE CARRYING 2 DECKS OF ATLEAST, THE BARE
    MINIMUM OF 13 CARDS EACH, PLUS 1 INSTRUCTION CARD, THERE WAS ONLY 1
    CARD IN THERE, IT WAS THE CARD GAME INSTRUCTION CARD, SO MISSING AT
    THE VERY LEAST 26 CARDS.

    IN TOTAL THIS BOOK WAS RECIEVED SLICED UP, BADLY WORN, WITH MORE THAN 2 DOZEN(that means more than 24) MISSING CRUCIAL ITEMS. WHICH IS JUST ABOUT OVER 95% OF THE REMOVABLE PIECES MISSING, LEAVING 1 CARD IN THE BACK COVER & 1 LETTER IN ITS ENVELOPE OUT OF APROX.30 OR MORE PIECES.
    ONLY 2 LEFT OUT OF AT LEAST 30.

    I AM LIVID AT WHAT THEY CONSIDER THE CONDITION "NEW" MEANS & JUST TOUCHING IT ANYONE COULD TELL IT WAS TRASHED, U DONT EVEN HAVE TO LOOK AT IT TO SAY ITS DAMAGED, IT WOULD ONLY TAKE TO PICK IT UP TO FEEL THOSE GASHES SO I WOULD BET MY LIFE ON IT THAT WHO EVER PACKAGED THIS THOUGHT I WAS A MORON OR HE JUST COULDNT CARE LESS!!!!!!!!! THIS WHOLE EXPERIANCE DISCUSTED ME AND I AM TARNISHED BY 1 AMERICAN'S STANDARDS FOR QUALITY IS, IF THAT PERSON HAS ANY!!!!!

    I AM FAR AND BEYOND UPSET,IM LIVID AND ABSOLUTELY DISCUSTED!!!!
