Abby in Wonderland (Whatever After Special Edition #1) (Paperback)
Other Books in Series
This is book number 1 in the Whatever After Special Edition series.
I'm spending the day with my best friends, Frankie and Robin, and -- UGH -- snobby Penny. I'm not expecting anything magical to happen, until Frankie falls into a mysterious hole behind Penny's house . . . and we all wind up in the story of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!
I've visited fairy tales before. But in Wonderland, everything is topsy-turvy. There are potions that make you grow, cakes that make you shrink, bossy caterpillars, and a horrible Queen of Hearts who wants to put us on trial.
Now we have to:
- Solve a riddle from the Cheshire cat
- Attend a wacky tea party with the Mad Hatter
- Become BFFs with Alice
- And find Frankie
. . . Or we'll be stuck in Wonderland for good!
This special edition is extra-long, extra-enchanting, and comes with puzzles, games, and a Q&A with the author!

A gorgeous high-seas, queer, fantasy for teens! Florian, born Flora, is a young pirate trying to make enough money to escape to a safe place with her brother. Lady Evelyn Hasegawa is a high-born imperial shipped off to be a soldier's bride. Author, Maggie Tokuda-Hall is able to weave together stories of love, adventure, family, identity, and magic in a world overshadowed by a seemingly mighty colonial power. A tale worthy of the sea, her mermaids, and the witches, pirates, and soldiers who hunt the two lovers. - review by Jessica
