Told between 'present' time and flashbacks, taking place between the old world and the new. The Carver tells the story of many of our fairy tale favourites, including Alice (in Wonderland), Hansel and Gretel, Peter Pan, Pinocchio to name but a few.
There are many strands to this tale that are woven together, but you do need to take note of where, when and who you are reading about. Full of action and adventure, this tale twists and turns on itself so you are never quite sure as whether the 'goodies' are winning or losing!
If you like twisted fairytales, then I can definitely recommend giving this one a go!
