What if Wendy from Peter Pan, Dorty from Oz and Alice from Alice In Wonderland were all buddies and hung out at the same school? In a new graphic novel called Cheshire Crossing, that’s exactly what happens! Think of it like Hogwarts, only none of the kids have magical powers and they’re all characters you already know and love. Plus, the worlds of Wonderland, Neverland, and Oz all get to overlap.
Cheshire Crossing is written by Andy Weir (the novelist famous for The Martian) with captivating illustrations by Sarah Andersen. The book is out this week from Ten Speed Press, a division of Penguin Random House.
Fatherly is proud to present the very beginning of the first chapter of Cheshire Crossing, which you can read below.
