Alice in Wonderland Retellings

This is part of a series on fairy tale retellings I’m putting together. The other posts in the series (so far) include:

Fairy Tale Retellings: Cinderella
Fairy Tale Retellings; Beauty & the Beast
Cyrano de Bergerac Retellings in Books and Film

I adore Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll in all its many forms. While this isn’t a traditional fairy tale, I feel like it serves as a base storyline for some really great retellings just like many of my favorite fairy tales. Like my other Fairy Tale posts, I’m going to divide these by genres. Watch for part 2 next week for some of my favorite movie/TV adaptations!

I don’t know what it is about Alice, but retellings seem to go either to a very dark place (zombies!) or erotica/reverse harem. I don’t write the stories, I only find them for you. /shrug



Urban Fantasy

Dark Fantasy/Horror


Contemporary Fiction

Short Stories/Anthologies/Poetry

Comics and Graphic Novels

“Begin at the beginning,” the King said, very gravely, “and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”

What do you think? Did I capture YOUR favorite Alice retelling? Do you have another favorite you love? Tell me about it in the comments!

  3. Nice list!

    Not even 2 months after you published this, another Alice in Wonderland sequel came out: Alice’s Adventures under Water.
    It is a new story about Alice, very faithful to the original tale by Lewis Carroll. You may be interested in that one too!
