Fans of Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece will recognize the framework of this macabre story: young girl finds herself on a mysterious and magical adventure and learns life lessons from an odd cast of characters along the way. But Cook’s illustrated retelling is something much more sinister than the original. Now instead of chasing a white rabbit down his hole, Alice is following a black rat through a graveyard. Along the way, she encounters all manner of undead characters—both human and animal—and a zombie army controlled by the malicious Queen of Hearts.

 

Alice in Zombieland stands out among the many recent zombie books thanks to its wonderfully depraved illustrations and a dark twist on one of my favorite classic tales.

 

Happy Halloween!
