Little Red Cuttlefish Goodreads Reviews

In this imaginative prequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Alice finds herself at a gray, dreary boarding school that is decidedly up the rabbit hole. From the relentless clocks to the beastly students, Alice’s world is void of color and cheer–until Alice finds a secret garden and begins tending its wilting inhabitants. When Alice’s love touches an ordinary caterpillar, a lory bird, and a white rabbit, magical things will happen–and that, as you know, is just the beginning of the story. Filled with literary allusions and clever nods to its classic roots, Alice’s Magic Garden is a delightful prequel that beckons an escape to the whimsy of Wonderland.

Press Coverage

  • “The illustrations are primarily black and white until Alice enters a walled garden outside the school. Paintings in lovely pastel shades take over, and from then on, Alice’s world changes. Her kindness to creatures she finds in the garden—a rabbit, a caterpillar, and a lory bird—endear her to them, and they, in turn, become characters familiar from the classic: the White Rabbit, the Caterpillar, and the Gryphon. Best of all, the magical trio promises friendship forever.” — Kirkus
