The plot: Dorothy, Alice, and Wendy have all returned to our world and tried explaining where they were to there parents to no avail. In 1904, or even today, this would be madness.
Flash forward to six years later, the 3 have spent years in and out of different "institutions" where they each have been diagnosed with "Dissociative Phychosis" disorder.
The truth is, they are mutants that have the ability to travel to other worlds.
The three of them team up with Nanny to save Oz from the Wicked Witch of the West and Captain Hook! And if that doesn't have your imagination going, nothing will!
Weir writes the girls as strong independent teens who are not afraid to fight or swear (though they do get censored) and Andersen does amazingly strong yet feminine drawings! A graphic novel not to be missed by any literary fans, both young and old!
I know I will be rereading this one, as it had me cheering and laughing out loud! I hope there will be another as these worlds are just to fun not to revisit!
I've been a huge fan of Sarah's Scribbles for some time and love the energy and wit she brings to those. This book was an absolute delight to read. I loved the way the characters are portrayed, bringing them very much up to date without being in a modern setting. Each of these girls have superpowers, and each one is handled fantastically well with great imagination. The cross-over potential was easy reached with all three inhabiting each others' story essentially and making a trio of true heroines.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I tried very hard to not read through this in one sitting as I really wanted to take my time with it. I'm very glad I did, reading a chapter every 2-3 days. I sincerely hope there is a sequal to this as I really want to read the continuing adventures of these three and their very surprising nanny.
I ordered the novel second hand, but it's pristine condition could've easily passed for new. In truth, I've pined for this book ever since first hearing about it and now finally having it, it has surpassed any expectations. Thank goodness Mr Weir decided to give life to this marvelous idea and to have it illustrated by Ms Sarah Andersen, whose talents bring a bold but delicate charm. Final thoughts: this novel is adventurous, imaginative, at times humorous but mostly precious. It's a precious thing that remembers three of the greatest characters from three of the greatest works of classical-fantastical literature, bringing them life upon the page once more. There's an underlying possibility of future collaborations between Weir and Andersen and, as much as I believe this should remain a single issue (adding to its preciousness), I wouldn't argue against a sequel.
Molto carino, disegni semplici ma molto ben fatti e d'effetto, colori stupendi. La storia è molto interessante, mi piacciono i caratteri forti, originali e ben definiti delle tre protagoniste. Penso però che la storia avrebbe funzionato meglio se non fosse stato un volume unico ma piuttosto una serie o almeno una trilogia: così com'è, le cose succedono troppo in fretta, con poco approfondimento, il che è un peccato perché l'idea è veramente accattivante.
Since the book is in English review will be in English. I loved the book. I really like how Andy Wier has intertwined the characters and the stories. And the artwork of Sara is gorgeous. I would love to see a sequel to the novel. Enjoy
