Alice Takes Back Wonderland by David D. Hammons
After ten years of being told she can’t tell the difference between real life and a fairy tale, Alice finally stops believing in Wonderland. Only when the White Rabbit kicks her down the rabbit hole does Alice realize that the magical land she visited as a child is real.
But the Ace of Spades has taken over Wonderland, and is systematically dismantling all that makes it wonderful.
Alice must help the Mad Hatter and all those fighting to keep Wonderland as mad as it’s ever been.
To do this, Alice journeys across the stars to unite an army.
She discovers that fairy tales are real in the magical world beyond the rabbit hole, but they are not the fairy tales she knows.
Alice must overcome the trials of these old stories if she wants to unite the lands against Ace.
With the help of Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Snow White, and heroes old and new, Alice may have the strength to take back Wonderland.

As most of you probably know the story of Alice, you know if the take…..
A young girl who falls into a strange world filled with magical beings.
But in this authors version, Alice is a young girl with a different story to tell, this is what happens after………
When she returned real world she was diagnosed with ADHD and Schizophrenia. She was then forced to believe that the Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter and all the other characters she met were all just figments of her imagination. So Alice finally believed them and let wonderland fall into just a memory.
But ten years later the white rabbit reappears and leads Alice back to Wonderland…… But all is not how she remembers it!!
The Cheshire Cat is dead and the Ace of Spades is now in charge. (And he’s a tyrant!) Nothing is as Alice remembers it to be. This world resembles the world she just left, it looks far too “normal”!
The Ace of Spades has decided that the magic/wonder that made this realm special is to be removed. Madness is now forbidden!
Alice has her work cut out for her, it’s going to take a huge plan to restore this realm back to the Wonderland Alice remembers and loves.
Alice Takes Back Wonderland is not just a retelling of the Lewis Carrols story. It’s a lot more, we see the characters from the original book play their part in trying to overthrow the Ace of Spades.
Bye we also see other characters from fairytales, like Peter Pan, Pinocchio and Snow White.
It is aimed for a YA reader, but I found it deeply interesting and I couldn’t put it down.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
David D. Hammons once snuck into a castle. It wasn’t a terribly good castle. In fact it was quite old and broken, but it had a shut door David wasn’t supposed to go through. Yet through it he went. He climbed an ancient wall he shouldn’t have climbed, wandered across borders without using the approved path, and was handed a silver trophy for a contest he wasn’t allowed to enter. From his time growing up in the Missouri Ozarks to his travels abroad, he couldn’t help going places and doing things he probably shouldn’t. Perhaps more of those doors needed ‘Keep Out’ signs, or if they did have signs they should have been locked, and if they had been locked they shouldn’t have hidden such amazing things that made going through them so worthwhile. David currently lives in Springfield, Missouri, where he teaches Marketing, studies History, and, alongside his wonderful wife, makes a valiant attempt at passing through the doorway of writing.
