Book Review: The Lost Wonderland Diaries by J. Scott Savage

 Book: The Lost Wonderland Diaries by J. Scott Savage

Genre: MG fantasy

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★

I was happy to nab this one from NetGalley for an early review. Wow, it's been awhile since I've done that! 

This is an awesome tribute to Alice in Wonderland and its author Lewis Carroll. We have two kids who are struggling in the real world, who meet up and quickly bond over their respective issues. As they are hanging out in the library, they stumble upon the lost diaries of Lewis Carroll which transports them straight to Wonderland itself!

But something is off in this Wonderland. All the familiar characters are there, but everyone is different. Things don't seem right. These two kids quickly realize that not only do they need to figure out how to get home, but they need to save Wonderland too! They go through adventure after adventure having to solve problems and riddles all along the way to accomplish their goals. Kids will love this. There's also a ton of learning thrown in, learning about different animals, learning vocabulary, etc. Kids, and parents, will love this even more! 

So yes, there's much humor and fun in this book that both kids and adults will enjoy, especially those who love Alice and her adventures. It's fun to see these kids have a similar, yet very different experience in Wonderland. And then come out of it stronger and better and much much more confident about dealing with their real life struggles. Perfect. 

This book will be published early September. Look for it!
