Wed Wabbit

Wed Wabbit, written by Lissa Evans, is a hilarious spoof of the classic tale of Alice In Wonderland.

Wed Wabbit tells the tale of a girl named Fidge who is plunged into a bizarre world alongside three companions; two are deeply weird and the third is her awful cousing Graham. She must solve a series of nearly impossible clues, defeat a dictator who cannot pronounce the letter "r" and deal with three thousand "Wimbley Woos". And she is the reason for it all.

This book seems to be of an entirely different genre than the other books from the lineup of the shortlist this year - the general theme being equality - this almost childish book does not relate in any obvious way. However, if one was to look below the surface of the book, one could notice that the book has tones of bereavement woven into the story. Fidge is sad because of her dad, and *spoiler* her nearly killing Minnie over Wed Wabbit, and so perhaps the whole thing is dreamt up, a way of coping.
I would imagine I am just reading into it too much though.

I loved reading this book, and could not put it down. I would rate this story 10/10, and would highly recommend ages 7+ to read it.
