This is a tour-de-force journey through the North-East, or more specifically, the Wear Valley with its focus on Sunderland and the amazing people that made/make up its personality. It is also an astounding series of interconnections and coincidences that link George Formby with Alice Liddell and Lewis Carroll, amongst so many others. It is an amazing cornucopia, a fount of knowledge... a wonderland.
The things I learned, the places I saw. It makes me want to pack my bags and drive up there using this book as a guide! History book, guide book, facts and legends... and at the heart of it that most marvellous of all books; Alice in Wonderland.
Read it - you'll never regret it!
I am a great fan of Alice and however tangental or abstract, I still found the inclusion worthwhile and enjoyable. In truth there must be many more works available on all aspects of Alice than there are on Sunderland, and this is a good way to get a view of a landmark in a city that may not be in the limelight otherwise. It may mean I will even plan a visit.
It is very will produced and printed. Like anyone seeking their entertainment from books, and particularly those seeking their reward in a graphic novel, there are always Marmite products, but I loved it! (Having tried Marmite, and at several attempts because I want to like it, I am still unable to digest it).
A triumph. A book that should be in every school in County Durham.
