Reviews of You Are Alice in Wonderland`s Mum!:

  • “The form of Tjia’s fiction, which allows readers to make their own plot choices, provides a reading experience that is quite engrossing, and maybe even nostalgic if you’re a fan of the original Choose Your Own Adventure series” – In the Montreal Review of Books
  • “What tipped me off? My book husband, Reg, asked if I’d “fancy a tussle. Picture me clutching my pearls” – At Broken Pencil

You Are Alice in Wonderland’s Mum!

Your quest to find your daughter will take you through the seedy underbelly of London’s Whitechapel district to the secret debauched heart of its richest denizens. You Are Alice in Wonderland’s Mum! will introduce you to Sing Sang-Song, the proprietor of a Limehouse opium den; surreal twin police constables Dean and Dunn Tweed; a terrifying new kind of killer the papers have dubbed ‘The Mad Hatter’ and the stuttering eccentric Charles Dodgson, a colleague of your husband’s who has more than a passing interest in Alice. In this tense nocturnal odyssey with over 13 possible endings, you pick the plot and you make the choices that will bring your dear daughter home, or lose her to Wonderland forever.
