Newly Published: Alice in Transmedia Wonderland

New on our bookshelf today:

Alice in Transmedia Wonderland: Curiouser and Curiouser New Forms of a Children’s Classic
Anna Kérchy

Part of Alice’s appeal is her ambiguity, which makes possible a range of interpretations in adapting Lewis Carroll’s classic Wonderland stories to various media.

Popular re-imaginings of Alice and her topsy-turvy world reveal many ways of eliciting enchantment and shaping make-believe. Late 20th century and 21st century adaptations interact with the source texts and with each other—providing readers with an elaborate fictional universe.

This book fully explores today’s multi-media journey to Wonderland.
