"Like the original, this is one for ambitious readers."

 Eleven authors pay tribute in tales that are variously playful (Pamela Butchart’s updating of Wonderland); impassioned (Swapna Haddow’s hymn to the importance of librarians and Lauren St John’s plea on behalf of bees and all animals); inventive (Robin Stevens’s view from Alice Liddell’s elder sister, or Patrice Lawrence’s from the perspective of a hedgehog croquet ball) as well as, in many cases, puzzling, dark, punning, hallucinogenic.
