“This book was all my favorite parts of Stuart Little and The Tale of Despereaux all balled up into one and spat out into the modern era. It's whimsical and magical, an unbelievably approachable way to teach young readers to stand up for what they believe in, even when those who are bigger or stronger don't see or acknowledge their problems. A treasure for all ages. I adored Bernard and his newfound friends. And I loved the new world he created for himself, and fought to make better, proving you don't have to return to where you came from just because it's familiar. And the narration! I wouldn't be surprised to see Gary Furlong join the ranks of Jim Dale and Stephen Fry in years to come. Absolutely stellar.”Britt, Second Star to the Right
“Bernard and his newfound friends—revolutionary rats, wise-cracking cats, and coffee-chugging squirrels, to name a few—will delight and inspire readers of all ages!” —Erin Entrada Kelly, Newbery Medal-winning author of Hello, Universe
The drowsy Dormouse from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is transported to modern-day New York City for the adventure of a lifetime in this middle grade novel that’s perfect for fans of Stuart Little and written by critically acclaimed author Cara Hoffman.
When a girl in a blue dress crashes the Mad Hatter’s eternal tea party, the sleepy Dormouse feels more awake than he has in a long time. He wishes he could follow her and be a part of her adventure.
And as luck would have it, a surprising twist of fate sends the Dormouse on an adventure of his own, where he must not fall asleep. For he is destined to save a magical world outside Wonderland, and it will take all his courage—and a few new friends—to do it.
