Reading level: Ages 11 and up

Paperback: 114 pages


Book overview: From the critically acclaimed author of Alice in Verse: The Lost Rhymes of Wonderland comes a chilling collection of rhyming poetry perfect for Halloween . . . or any other dark and spooky night.

From the creepy jingles of Shadows in the Nursery and the eerie angst of The Darkening ’Tweens to the malevolently poetic odes of Medieval Maladies and the sweeping chills of The Epic Tales—all perfectly capped off by the haunting afters of Two for the Road—J.T. Holden’s Twilight Tales offers a deliciously wicked mix of frightening fare!

Alice in Verse by J.T. HoldenAlice in Verse: The Lost Rhymes of Wonderland

Reading Level: Ages 10 and up

Hardcover: 112 pages 

Book overview: Have you ever wondered…

Who really stole the Queen’s tarts? Whatever did become of the Walrus & the Carpenter after their nefarious jot down the briny beach with the little Oysters? Is there truly any sense to be found in nonsense at all?


Come follow Alice down the rabbit-hole once again as Lewis Carroll’s timeless classic is reimagined through the lyrical language of Wonderland…where a Caterpillar dispenses an indelible lesson, a Cat offers safe haven and  (fairly) sound advice, and a Hatter and Hare throw a mad tea party before matching wits at the trial of the century!
