In a one-of-a-kind graphic novel collaboration between the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Martian and the beloved illustrator behind Sarah’s Scribbles, Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy team up to save the multiverse, from Wonderland to Neverland and Oz.
 
Originating as fan fiction from the brilliant imagination of Andy Weir, now brought to vivid life by Sarah Andersen, Cheshire Crossing is a funny, breakneck, boundlessly inventive journey through classic worlds as you’ve never seen them before.
 
Years after their respective returns from Wonderland, Neverland, and Oz, the trio meet here, at Cheshire Crossing—a boarding school where girls like them learn how to cope with their supernatural experiences and harness their magical world-crossing powers.
 
But Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy—now teenagers, who’ve had their fill of meddling authority figures—aren’t content to sit still in a classroom. Soon they’re dashing from one universe to the next, leaving havoc in their wake—and, inadvertently, bringing the Wicked Witch and Hook together in a deadly supervillain love match.
 
To stop them, the girls will have to draw on all of their powers . . . and marshal a team of unlikely allies from across the magical multiverse.

Advance praise for Cheshire Crossing

“Deliciously funny . . . a shrewd and spirited adaptation that will leave audiences hoping for another installment . . . Andersen’s delightful cartoon drawing style meshes perfectly with Weir’s prose, allowing the work to broaden its appeal beyond middle graders to young adults and adults.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

This book has been especially re-published to raise funds for BBC Children in Need. By buying this book you will be donating to this great charity that does so much good for children and what better way to help children than to buy a book of fairy tales. Some of which have not been seen in print or heard for over a century. 

In this volume you will find 19 classic folk and fairy tales like: THE SLEEPING BEAUTY IN THE WOOD, CINDERELLA, EAST OF THE SUN AND WEST OF THE MOON, RUMPELSTILTZKIN, LOVELY ILONKA, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, LUCKY LUCK, WHY THE SEA IS SALT, PUSS IN BOOTS, THE DRAGON OF THE NORTH, THE GLASS MOUNTAIN and many more.

As to whether there are really any fairies or not, that is a difficult question. The Editor never saw any himself, but he knew several people who have seen them-in the Highlands-and heard their music. If ever you are in Nether Lochaber, go to the Fairy Hill, and you may hear the music your- self, as grown-up people have done, but you must go on a fine day. In the meantime, here's a poem for all the young people out there.....

Books Yellow, Red, and Green and Blue, 

All true, or just as good as true, 

And here's a Folklore Book just for YOU! 

Hard is the path from A to Z, 

And puzzling to a curly head, 

Yet leads to Books-Green, Yellow and Red. 

For every child should understand 

That letters from the first were planned 

To guide us into Fairy Land 

So labour at your Alphabet, 

For by that learning shall you get 

To lands where Fairies may be met. 

And going where this pathway goes, 

You too, at last, may find, who knows? 

The Garden of the Singing Rose.

The New York Times bestselling graphic novel sensation from Noelle Stevenson, based on her beloved and critically acclaimed web comic. Kirkus says, “If you’re going to read one graphic novel this year, make it this one.”

Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle Stevenson. Featuring an exclusive epilogue not seen in the web comic, along with bonus conceptual sketches and revised pages throughout, this gorgeous full-color graphic novel has been hailed by critics and fans alike as the arrival of a “superstar” talent (NPR.org).

Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren't the heroes everyone thinks they are.

But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona's powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit.

“When Kristia discovers that her new boyfriend is the Norse god of winter, she’s plunged into a world beyond her wildest dreams… A breathtaking fantasy series brimming with romance, magic, and danger!” -Bookbub


From international bestselling author S.T. Bende comes the complete story of The Elsker Saga (Books 1-3, PLUS novella).

When bookish student Kristia Tostenson discovers her new boyfriend is the Norse God of Winter, her orderly life becomes very messy. With Ragnarok, the end of days, on the horizon and a lunatic haunting her dreams, Kristia has to find a way to convince Ull that breaking the rules is the only way to survive; that defying the order he's sworn to uphold is their only chance to be together. And when someone starts asking the wrong questions, Kristia realizes the crazy visions she's had all her life might be the key to saving their realms... even if they end up costing her her life.


The Elsker Saga Box Set includes all three books in S.T. Bende’s internationally bestselling ELSKER SAGA, plus the bonus novella, TUR.


ELSKER:

Bookish Kristia is stunned to discover that her boyfriend, Ull Myhr, isn’t even human. He’s a Norse god, forbidden to love and destined to die in a battle that will destroy Earth. But these two just might break all the rules — and save the world while they’re at it…


ENDRE:

Winning the heart of an immortal assassin was a dream come true for Kristia Tostenson. But her decision to become immortal could end in heartbreak--not only for Kristia, but also for the god who loves her. While Ull would do anything to protect his bride, even the God of Winter is powerless against the Norse apocalypse. Ragnarok is coming . . . and the gods aren't even close to ready.


TRO:

As things heat up between Kristia and Ull, a frost settles over Asgard. Kristia's barely begun to understand what she's capable of, and controlling her powers seems completely out of her grasp. With her new family fighting for their lives, and Ull fighting for their future, Kristia has to make a devastating choice: preserve the life she loves, or protect the god she can't live without?


TUR: 

Inga Andersson has it all—great friends, a job as Odin’s personal fight choreographer, and a happy ever after with her realm’s hottest assassin. But when evil invades Asgard, her world comes crashing down. With Ragnarok on the horizon, Inga has to decide how she’ll spend her final moments of freedom. Because once the battle begins, Inga’s perfekt life will be nothing more than a memory.
