Alice is my Wonderland, addendum

How could I have made this oversight in my previous Ode to Alice post?
I completely forgot to mention (amateur movie buff that I am) that Tim Burton is making a live-action, freakishly fantastic (I’m assuming) version of Alice in Wonderland!

The movie is starring non-other than everyone’s favorite Johnny Depp (seriously, swoon) and a personal favorite (Alan Rickman), along with Mia Wasikowska as Alice – though, excuse me Mr. Burton, if you read the book, she actually should have dark hair and it’s only Tenniel’s illustrations and subsequent Disney adaptations that make her blonde; I’m a little disappointed you didn’t buck trends in that way. Anne Hathaway is the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter is the Red Queen – side bar, she and Johnny Depp must be friends in real-life, no? Considering how many movies they’ve done together? – and my co-worker’s new favorite, Stephen Fry, as the Cheshire Cat. Christopher Lee (might be recognized as Saruman the White from the Lord of the Rings Peter Jackson movie trilogy) makes an appearance, as does Crispin Glover as the Knave of Hearts (recognized as the weird half-creepy guy who has a thing for hair in the Charlie’s Angels movies – don’t lie, you’ve seen them). All-in-all, can’t wait for this to come out. Currently in post-production, 2010 release date, I’m ready for you!

  1. Yes Helena Bonham Carter, Tim Burton are very close friends with Johnny Depp are friends, he's the godfather to their son.

  2. Thank you for that! I was sure they had to be. I bet they have great times. I always like to see evidence of people who are famous having actual lives and relationships. These two seem to be some of the most genuine out there. Appreciate the feedback!

  3. Oooh, I can't wait! Tim Burton will have an appropriately dark sense to his film, I hope. Honestly, I know I'm totally biased, but I really believe that only Barry Moser and Ralph Steadman have been the illustrators to really "get" the Alice books. I have high hopes for Burton, but as you say, I'm disappointed that he went for blondie Alice. Johnny Depp AND Alan Rickman AND Stephen Fry, all in the same film? God help me and anybody who goes with me to the theater to see this one!

It came! It came! So excited to have received my gorgeous new @rebelgirlsbook book 2 in the mail yesterday! That's 2/2 GOODNIGHT STORIES FOR REBEL GIRLS books that I helped fund via @kickstarter, and I would help fund a dozen more at least. Also thrilled @quailridgebooks already has our shipment on order so I can handsell these through the holidays. #indiesfirst!

#readstagram #readwithme #readmore #reading #read #instaread #instabook #indiesfirst #shoplocal #bookstore #bookshop #bookshelves #book #books #bookrec #bookworm #bookish #booklove #booklover Today I sat down and read @theallycarter's newest book, NOT IF I SAVE YOU FIRST, coming out March 27, 2018, and I finished it in one sitting. That's how quickly I flipped those pages! I'm a huge fan of her HEIST SOCIETY series, and this one lives up to what I've come to expect from aa Ally Carter YA-thriller-romance. Read on for my review. Thanks to @quailridgebooks for my advanced copy! #booksellerlife . . .
Review: Ally Carter has done it again! I don't know how she manages to so perfectly balance a kick-ass teenage girl with just a pinch of over-the-top girliness, but she nails it every time. Basically this can be considered a contemporary retelling of The Paper Bag Princess, where the prince is the US President's son, the princess is the son's former best friend/daughter of the President's former body guard, and the dragon is a Russian operative. Oh and the setting is winter in Alaska. And because it's Ally Carter, while the girl clearly saves the day and rescues the boy, she also ends up with the boy because teenage love conquers all.

New review & a staff pick for @quailridgebooks: Guaranteed giggles! Clever illustrations, Captain PB (polar bear, not peanut butter), a literary fox, and three very silly lemmings. Perfect for all storytimes, with opportunities to do character voices. It also imparts the importance of learning how to read without being didactic. My favorite picture book of the year!
