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!

I have been wanting to read this for a long time but was not sure if it would be worth the money. Thanks B&N,  I can now give it a try for FREE.

I did not get Alice in Zombieland for the free friday book. Do they give different books for different areas. I'm so disappointed. Haven't got anything good in awhile. I'm sad:womansad:

I would think that everyone would get the same Free Friday book. I live in central Illinois, and received Alice In Zombieland last Friday. So, how about it ? Anybody out there live elsewhere and know the answer to Fae Topaz's question?
