About this ebook

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)

Full of fun characters and fun moments! Kept me interested from start to finish and I LOVE the new takes on the characters! I've always moved Alice, Dorothy, and Wendy and have always fantasized what would happen if they met ! (SPOILER!!!) I also was captivated by the side characters like Peter "growing up" and freakin MARY POPPINS?! What the heck i flipped out! 😂 Crossing my fingers for a sequel and wishing on the second star! ❤️

This had such a wonderful sounding premise, and then was such a disappointment. The story (as little of it as there was) was just all over the place, and none of the characters or story had any weight to them. The art was nice though.

When you get famous enough as a writer, the joke goes, you can even get your grocery list published. Or, in this case, a graphic novel of your online fan fiction. And the publisher will even offer to ...
