ALICE FALLS AGAIN
A twisted tale about the time Alice returned to Wonderland.
Above the care home's doorbell hung a small plaque, which read: 'ONLY FOR PRESSING MATTERS'.
"Well that makes sense," said Alice.
"It's about the only thing that does in this place," said the Mayor of Banbury with uncharacteristic sarcasm.
Now in her late teens, Alice is smarter and savvier this time around, which is just as well, as Wonderland bears little resemblance to its former self. Animals are forbidden to talk, the townsfolk live in fear of a corrupt tyrant and the weather's all mixed up. Characters and events appear to be straight out of the dark origins of our favourite nursery rhymes. All that's missing is a Jabberwocky.
One thing hasn't changed - Alice's curiosity and attitude might just be the death of her if she can't find her way back home.
Propelled forward by a tapestry of gritty wordplay and the sinister backstories of our favourite nursery rhymes, DJ Stoneham's debut fantasy novel will thrill younger and older adults alike.
