The Looking Glass 
Wars

Greetings!

My name is Frank Beddor. I’m the author of the New York Times best-selling series The Looking Glass Wars—a dark yet empowering twist on Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”

My Wonderverse—which I have been creating for twenty years—is a multi-cultural, multi-generational affair. The stories aim to transform a rather passive “Alice” and a loony “Mad Hatter” into powerful and imaginative twenty-first century heroes.

Step through the looking glass and discover the truth.
