Alice in Zombieland
by Lewis Carroll and Nickolas Cook

Off with their heads! Zombies have made their way into wonderland. Lewis Carroll's classic novel becomes curiouser and curiouser with the undead...

Zombies. That's right - zombies. In Wonderland.

When Alice follows the Black Rat into the open grave, she falls and falls, and soon finds herself in an undead nightmare of rotting flesh and insanity. Following the Rat, she ventures further into this land of monsters, encountering madcap characters 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 Queen catches up to her?

Have a seat at the table for the wildest tea party of your life and explore the unforgettable adventure that is Alice in Zombieland. A fresh and hilarious new zombie mash-up, bringing the hottest format on the humor shelf to a beloved classic, complete with zombie-fied updates to the renowned illustrations by Sir John Teniel.

This was a quick read at only 240 pages. We follow Alice as her adventures begin from chasing a rat and falling into an open grave. After a very long fall, she lands in a world where almost every creature she comes in contact with is dead. Like the previous novel, she has issues with shrinking and growing taller than other characters. The longer she stays in this underground world, the hungrier she becomes and she begins to wonder if she will make it out alive. If you enjoyed the classic Alice in Wonderland and you like zombies, you will find this a refreshing take and amusing in many ways.
