Looking Glass Wars

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


"Frank Beddor, the American producer of the gross-out movie There's Something About Mary, has transformed Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland into a dark and violent tale of murder and war.
Beddor said his novel, The Looking Glass Wars, was prompted by his hatred of the "terrible girls' book" he was forced to read by his mother and grandmother as a child.
Several of Britain's best-loved children's authors, and the Lewis Carroll Society, are questioning the wisdom of reworking the greats of English literature, including Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass."

From The Independent, July 5th. Includes comments from Michael Morpurgo, Judith Kerr and Jacqueline Wilson.
