Illustrated Excerpt: Mrs. White Rabbit
Alice in Wonderland is one of the great classics of children’s literature, but what does anyone actually know about Wonderland?
In Mrs. White Rabbit, written and illustrated by Gilles Bachelet, readers finally get to see what happens in the background during Alice’s adventures—through the diary of the White Rabbit’s extremely busy wife.
Mrs. White Rabbit loves her husband and their many children, but living in Wonderland comes with a number of challenges. In addition to the invisible housecat from Cheshire and a young female visitor who frequently changes size, there’s are the seemingly endless tasks and chores.
There are errands to run . . .
. . . children to drop off at school . . .
. . . and all those carrots to cook:
And her husband never notices, and never helps out with the housework. Well, almost never.
With an abundance of wit and charm, Mrs. White Rabbit gives Lewis Carroll’s famous tale a refreshingly modern twist.
