Horn Book Review

When talented baker Catherine discovers that the King of Hearts plans to propose to her, it threatens to destroy her dream of opening a bakery as well as her budding romance with the mysterious Jest. This imaginative backstory for Wonderland's brutal Queen of Hearts (from Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland) has an engaging heroine, but her descent into darkness is unfortunately too abrupt.
