Title: Cheshire Crossing
By: Andy Weir & Sarah Andersen
Call #: YA Graphic Weir.A
What an absolute treat! This unlikely pair of Andy Weir (The Martian) and Sarah Andersen – better known for her often viral Sarah Scribbles comics – creates a fun and beautiful romp through all of your favorite childhood books.
Wendy Darling, Alice Liddell, and Dorothy Gale have all experienced madcap adventures in fantastical lands throughout their childhoods. But who would believe such ridiculous stories? Certainly not their parents, who have shipped them from asylum to asylum until the three find themselves as roommates in a very special boarding school.
This graphic novel is riddled with references to cherished classics and mixed with Weir’s trademark humor. The unexpectedly lovely illustrations by Andersen pull everything together and really show how extensively talented she is. It’s delightfully bawdy and great for both teens and adults – with an opening letter by Weir which is not to be skipped!
