Author: Frank Beddor

After escaping from a bloody coup in Wonderland, Alyss Heart battles the evil Queen Redd and the dark forces of Black Imagination in The Looking Glass Wars.

It's Alyss, Not Alice

The Looking Glass Wars is an action-packed, fantasy and adventure tale, inspired by the classic book, Alice's Adventures In Wonderland (you know, the one that the Disney movie was based on). It's the story of Alyss Heart, who is heir to the queendom of Wonderland, a magical place filled with chess pieces that talk, walruses that work as butlers and caterpillars that smoke from a hoocha and can predict the future. But when the evil Queen Redd and her army of Card Soldiers stage a bloody coup and kill Alyss' parents, the young princess is forced to flee Wonderland through a looking glass and begin living a normal life in England.

Good versus Evil

The Looking Glass Wars is a classic tale of good versus evil. To reclaim her rightful place as Queen of Wonderland, Alyss must use the good powers of White Imagination to defeat Queen Redd, the evil Cat and the dark and deadly forces of Black Imagination. Along the way, Alyss also learns important lessons about revenge, loyalty and friendship.


The Bottom Line

The Looking Glass Wars is a fast-moving story filled with such amazing characters and bloody battles that you'll find this book hard to put down. Alyss Heart is an amazing character, who's strength, spirit and imaginative powers make her a heroine unlike any other. You'll also be drawn to The Cat, a revolting assassin, who is part feline, part human and completely evil. From the bloody battles involving Card Soldiers and chess pieces to the wild rides through the Looking Glass Continuum, the Looking Glass Wars is a magical journey that reveals the power of faith and imagination.

Well, there was the immunodeficiency explosion of the late 1980's, mostly attributed to gay men. But I don't see how a gay person would have to have a negative effect in order for people to think something about their lifestyle is wrong.

    So I decided to make a forum post on the different types of people you'll probably find on Kidzworld. Leave a comment or like if you fit any of the different types of description! 1. The Forum Kids - These are the kids that you'd find mostly residing and posting in the forum's and there usually the debatable type. If you look at their number of forum posts it easily exceeds 1000. They're rarely in chat but they'll be in there once in a while. 2. The Chatterboxes (this is me)- These are the kid that reside mainly in the chat room. This can also be split into the different types of kids you'd find in the chat room. A. The non-english speakers- Who no matter how many times you'd tell to keep the language in English, they won't listen. B. The online daters- These kids see chat as an opportunity to find the true love of their lives. They'll take it to the PM's C. The broken English kid - This is the kid who speaks in English but it's hard to make out what they are trying to say. There usually the nicest people tbh. D. The Observer's (me)- The kid who would just observe chat, rarely contribute but only when they feel is necessary. They can be loud when their speaking to a close friend. E. The multiple account holder- They are constantly changing accounts and you'd start to forget who they even are anymore. F. The Rebellion's- The kids who are constantly frozen or kicked out of chat for their inappropriate behavior. They're usually the most funniest people. And finally 3. The Ancients- These are the kids who have been using this site for quite a few years now and usually find themselves looking back at their past on Kidzworld and feeling saddened by the change.
