Book Blurb:
When little Alice follows the Black Rat down into the open grave, she falls and falls, and soon finds herself in an undead nightmare. Following the Rat, she ventures further into this land of monsters, encountering 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. Can Alice escape Zombieland before the Dead Red 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.

Quick Thoughts: 
Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite stories- that being said, I really enjoyed Alice in Zombieland. Wonderland is already an eccentric place, so I felt that turning it into a Zombieland wasn't too far fetched and the new world fit right into the story. This novel was a lot of fun for me, I love the horror twists on old classics.

This book is disturbing and humorous. A really light, quick read. The illustrations are fabulous. It isn't the typical zombie mash-up, either. I have seen some reviewers upset that Cook only altered some words and kept the writing pretty much the same and not making the story his own, but I didn't mind that. I liked it.

I am really excited to recommend Alice in Zombieland to a friend. Zombie fans should really get into this. It is super creepy, just how I like my zombie books.

  2. I'm with you, I couldn't pass this one up. It isn't as good as Dawn of the Dreadfuls... but I still think it is fun for what it is :)
