Fifty Shades of Alice?! Ew.

Again from our Fearless Leader (kinda edgy, dontcha think?).  Ok, did we really need this?  Who can say.  And who will review it for KL?  Hayley, please say no ;-)  Is that a mushroom or are you just happy to see me.  Ugh. The first two of three appear to be published (Wonderland and Looking Glass) as audiobooks or on Kindle, what could the third be?

A Book (Not) Without Pictures

For those of you who were not able to attend our spring meeting, we had a very nice presentation by Mike Schneider on his What is the Use of a Book Without Pictures project, a completely visual telling of Alice in every imaginable style.  This article does a very nice job explaining it.  I can hardly wait for the finished product!
