About the Book:
"They were indeed a queer-looking party that assembled on the bank-the birds with draggled feathers, the animals with their fur clinging close to them, and all dripping wet, cross, and uncomfortable. All of them were covered in Alice's now cold and congealed blood, which made them even tastier looking to poor hungry Alice."

When little Alice follows the Black Rat down into the gaping darkness of an open grave, she falls and falls. And soon finds herself in an undead nightmare of rotting flesh and insanity. Venturing further into this land of zombies and monsters, she encounters characters both creepy and madcap along the way. But there's something else troubling poor Alice: her skin is rotting and her hair is falling out. She's cold. And she has the haunting feeling that if she remains in Zombieland any longer, she might never leave.

Can Alice escape Zombieland before the Dead Red Queen catches up to her?

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I loved the mix of the old story with the new version.

Check out author's other books or related books? I haven't yet.

Recommend this book? Yes.

Notes and Opinions: This was a super cool rewrite of the original story. I being the Alice enthusiast that I am was happy how much original story was in the book. I loved the Cheshire cat and the Duchess especially. I think this is a fun twist to an old tale with some gore involved.

Go Into This One Knowing: Its about zombies so it is VERY gory.
