This isn’t his sister’s Wonderland….

Henry never believed his older sister, Alice’s, fantastic tales about the world down the rabbit hole. When he’s whisked away to the bizarre land, his best chance for escape is to ally himself with the person called the Mad Hatter. Hatter—an odd but strangely attractive fellow—just wants to avoid execution. If that means delivering “Boy Alice” to the Queen of Hearts at her Red Castle, Hatter will do what he has to do to stay alive. It doesn’t matter if Henry and Hatter find each other intolerable. They’re stuck with each other.

Along their journey, Henry and Hatter must confront what they’ve always accepted as truth. As dislike grows into tolerance and something like friendship, the young men see the chance for a closer relationship. But Wonderland is a dangerous place, and first they have to get away with their lives.

Dakota Chase writes stories of the fantastical, of ghosts and monsters, and time travel. She lives right on the border of Normal, and has been known to take quick trips into the next town over, Crazy, although she usually finds her way home again without little trouble. She shares her home with Nibbles, her Shar-Pei/Labrador mixed breed that may or may not be a werewolf in disguise, and a husband who definitely isn't a werewolf even though he's been known to be shaggy and howl from time to time. She has four grown children, one of whom has spawned, resulting in two grandchildren whom she adores. When she isn't writing, Dakota likes to crochet odd things, like killer shark slippers and skull dolls. She loves sushi, spicy foods, and grapes, but is highly allergic to any form of math.

    I received a free copy of this book to review from Netgalley.Hatter has been kept prisoner in the red queens dungeons for longer than he can remember. Eventually the day has come, he has been summoned by the Queen herself what can only be for none the less a beheading as everyone knows this is her favourite pastime. To the Hatters amazement she is sparing his head by striking a deal that he can’t refuse (really he can’t refuse) by capturing ‘boy Alice’ – and returning him for a right old head lolloping.‘Boy Alice’ is in fact Alice’s younger brother Henry(17). He has never believed Alice’s stories of wonderland and always thought she was attention seeking, for which they have never seen eye to eye.All Henry remembers is Alice apologising after their recent altercation, handing him a glass of punch and telling him to find the Hatter!Henry finds himself in a mysterious place of oversized flowers and a caterpillar sitting upon a mushroom that speaks in riddles – can it really be Wonderland? Was Alice really an attention seeking twit?.When Hatter finds Henry they grow to like each other and try to figure a plan to get Henry back to his home but by doing so they have to cross some challenging areas within Wonderland such as the Neverglades and Drawrof, during this adventure the relationship between the Hatter and Henry blossom. "Rules are merely a fistful of conundrums, obstacles and barriers knotted and twisted together for the sole purpose of sucking the last bit of fun out of every experience"I loved this book so much! The world-building was amazing that I felt like I was in Wonderland alongside the Hatter and Henry. Every section of Wonderland they crossed was so different from the last and every bit as magical.The book is only 190 pages so a very fast and easy read. I liked that all the original characters were used and they all had the same traits as from Alice in Wonderland and that new creatures added and were blended in well.The friendship between Henry and the Hatter was very sweet and heartwarming as they ventured on through the mystical lands and defied death, the feelings for one another become more than companions.There were some particularly funny moments in the book that did make me laugh out loud as they were quite witty and there were still some essence of nonsense but not as much as Alice in Wonderland.Alice to me was the only character that I didn’t really feel genuine, it felt a bit forced like she had to been in the book because it was based on Alice in Wonderland by C.S Lewis.Nearing the end of the book there was a particular cheesy bit that I didn’t really like as it was a bit of a cliché but other than that I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I was sucked in to the magical world that was Wonderland!I think there is definitely room for a sequel. "That’s the secret to Wonderland. Believing. It’s what fuels magic."I would recommend this book for anyone that reads/likes Young Adult and Lite fantasy novels.I have never read anything else by Dakota Chase, though she has other books published such as ‘Changing Jamie’ and ‘Monster Town’.Overall I rate this 4 out of 5 stars

    I was super excited about Mad About the Hatter because of the idea that it would be Alice's brother Henry going to the Wonderland, and of course, about the possibility of romance between Henry and Hatter. While the writing was good, the story itself fell a little flat. I felt like it focused on all the wrong things, and that's why I couldn't connect with the story as much as I wanted. It's more like a description of all the madness in Wonderland rather than romance between Henry and Hatter, or even any sort of self-discovery journey. It was more like a walk through Wonderland where so much stuff happened that it became predictable and boring. The best part of the book was when they were actually in England; that was the part I enjoyed the most. Otherwise, I feel like the title should be 'Mad About the Wonderland' because that's what the story focused on.The focus on scenery and the madness in Wonderland left a little place for actual character development. Or even a character study in the first place. There was always something happening or somewhere to go, which meant that the story didn't take a breather and focus on the characters even a bit. I like character driven stories, and while I don't mind action at all, I mind quite a bit when there seems to be all the action and no character development. That's why I felt a little distanced from the story, and I never became too invested on the characters fates. The story was okay, but it wasted the huge potential it had.I can recommend this to those who want to read pages after pages of description of everything that goes on in the Wonderland, and who don't mind the romance - or the characters - being side tracked by that. But if you want passionate romance, then this might not be for you.

    *I received a free copy via Netgalley*First of all let me say that I love anything to do with Alice In Wonderland. This book did not disappoint me, from the very first page I was drawn into the world that I grew up loving. This is the first version I've read where Alice has a brother and I found it to work very well into a storyline that felt natural.If you love Alice In Wonderland then please give this a try. You feel like you are in Wonderland yourself and the mad journey is amazing.

    Fun but forgettable. I did enjoy the sweet romance between the boys, though.
