This novel, is one of the more important "Alice imitations, " or novels inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice books according to Carolyn Sigler who currently is an Associate Professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth, where she teaches classes in Victorian literature and culture and children's literature.
Her research focuses on the process and theory of literary adaptation, and particularly on works that represent and adapt the powerful mythoi which have circulated around Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, as well as the authorship and historical identity of Lewis Carroll. Of course, when an originally successful piece of art is followed by another imitation, conflicts will arise. Sigler has noted: "While Carroll's feelings about such "Alice type books were conflicted, ranging from interest to outrage (he later considered a lawsuit against American author Anna Richards over her unauthorized sequel to the Alice books, A New Alice in the Old Wonderland ), curiosity seems to have predominated.The preface offers a cute rhyme, as I'm sure Ms. Richards' was ready to face any and all criticisms for undertaking such a taboo classic.
