This week, we're reading The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor. The book is a retelling of the Alice in Wonderland story, set in a very sci-fi type setting.
Beddor is actually a VERY well known producer. His probably two biggest claim to fames are There's Something About Mary and Wicked (no, not the play, the Julia Styles movie.)
Did I forget to mention that he is a world champion skier, a stuntman and actor? The guy really does it all, so it shouldn't have surprised anyone when he started writing and ended up becoming a NY Times bestseller.
The Looking Glass Wars is the first of a trilogy, and has a spin off graphic novel series, Hatter Matigan.
As per usual, you can always go to his website to find out more about him!
