SPLINTERED is a stunning debut that captures the fantastical madness of a mystical under-land as well as a girl’s pangs of first love and independence. Alyssa Gardner, the fictional great-great-great-granddaughter of the real Alice Liddell, the woman who inspired Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, finds that the real Wonderland is full of strange beings and dark agendas. She must right the wrongs of Alice to break a maddening family curse. This month we celebrate the release of Splintered by debut author A. G. Howard. Learn more about the author after the break!
My kids are I are huge Alice in Wonderland fans – we’ve watched the Disney movie together several times, and they both love reading The Annotated Alice with me before bed. They make me read and reread the annotations, even though they don’t understand most of them. So they were completely thrilled when I brought home The Alice in Wonderland Giant Poster and Coloring Book (Abrams Image, 2012). Full disclosure: The girls actually colored (i.e., destroyed) an entire Alice coloring book already, so I had to bring home a brand-new one for the purpose of this blog post!
