Blog, News and Happenings

2015 marked the 150th anniversary of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.  And we're almost halfway through 2016.  No, I'm not late, late for a very important date.  I purposely postponed this post to coincide with the big screen release of Alice Through the Looking Glass!  In this sequel to Disney's 2010 live-action Alice in Wonderland, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Wonderland (and travels back in time) to save the Mad Hatter.  The original star-studded cast returns -- Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, and Mia Wasikowska -- plus Sacha Baron Cohen as Time.  If you go to see it, prepare yourself for "visual extravagance" and extreme quirkiness.

AWESOME ALICE BONUS FROM BRITISH LIBRARY!
Want to flip through the original, hand-penned and illustrated manuscript?  You can read it AND hear it when you visit Alice's Adventures Under Ground.

First, there were The Three Ninja Pigs.  Then, there was Ninja Red Riding Hood.  What's next from Corey Rosen Schwartz and Dan Santat?  Hensel & Gretel: Ninja Chicks!

"These ninja chicks are anything but chicken! When Hensel and Gretel’s dad gets snatched by a fox, the sisters put their ninja skills to work to track him down before he can be stir-fried. But are these two little chicks ready to take on a dark tangled forest, a tricky house made of corn bread, and an even trickier fox? This plucky pair isn’t giving up without a fight! Kiya!" 

Watch the book trailer, read the book, then practice your ninja moves.  You can also ninjify YOUR favorite fairytale!
