This book was written by yours truly, the webmaster of this site! I always thought that, with all my knowledge of the ‘Alice’ books, I should be able to write a new book in the series that does justice to the originals.

While all the items listed in my shop can be bought from Amazon, you can buy this book directly from me as well (by adding it to the shopping cart on this website). I prefer the latter, because that way I don’t lose a large part of the margin. However, shipping costs from the Netherlands may be too high for you. If that is the case, you can buy the book from Amazon, or order it from any other bookstore.

My shipping rates and return policy.

When you buy the book directly from me, I don’t charge any VAT (because of a Dutch tax arrangement), so mind that it won’t be listed on your invoice.

Description

If you enjoyed Lewis Carroll’s books Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and what Alice found there, this is the book for you! Finally, there is a third story in the Alice series – written in Carroll’s familiar style, but packed with a great number of completely new puns, poems, and satire!

This time, Alice explores an under-water world, in which she meets new characters who again make her wonder about their strange logic and behaviour.

The story can be enjoyed by everyone, even those who have never read Carroll’s tales. However, the more familiar you are with them, the more references you will recognise in this exceptionally clever story…

Listen to me read parts of the book aloud!


“Lenny has masterfully managed to revive Carroll in all aspects of form and content of the two ‘predecessors’, and that is unbelievably, extremely clever: ‘In this style 10/6’!”

– F. Koksma, Dutch Lewis Carroll Society

“Ms. de Rooy captured the essence of Alice and her adventures beautifully. This tale contained all of the magic that was included in the original Alice books. I especially loved the subtle modern twists the author added in her references to public figures, songs, and more. She struck the perfect balance between copying the original tone of this series and including things that would appeal to the sensibilities of twenty-first century readers. […] Alice’s Adventures Under Water was an incredible adventure I’d recommend to kids and adults alike.”
Long and Short Reviews; 5 star rating

“I have rarely (if ever) read anything that so closely hews to Lewis Carroll’s style as this book. This continuation of the adventures of Alice is playful, vibrant, and very committed to its setting, bringing a life and a joy that is uncommon when building on a deceased and world-renowned author’s work.”
– R. Owens, Lewis Carroll Society of North America

“I loved Alice’s Adventures under Water because it was like stepping back into the magical mind of Alice. Lenny de Rooy’s attention to detail is impressive and makes the experience more authentic. It takes courage to attempt a sequel to a popular book but De Rooy’s work could have come from Carroll himself.”
– S. Bhamjee, Readers’ Favorite

    I really enjoyed reading this book.
    For some of the poems I could easily see where they came from and that made me smile.
    Several references to the original books also brought me a bright smile.
    I think that the book is quite good, though of course it could have been even better.
    At some points it feels a little bit serious.
    I am not sure whether Carroll would be content with this book, I think he might be, but he would surely have a list with things that could be better. Carroll was quite perfectionist…
