With a name like, Alice, set in depression era America and her love for books, "Wonderland Creek" is a book to fall in love with, particularly if you are a "nose in the books" book lover who can find yourself identifying with Alice's misadventures.

Not as much a love story as a historical fiction adventure set in America, dealing with the grips of the Depression, poor Alice has a love for books, that is a little too much and costs her the courtship of a boyfriend, she thought was alright, and finds herself on an adventure in the mountains, that takes her breath away.

I love books. I love reading and "Wonderland Creek" was a perfect blend of a passion for books, and a lesson how sometimes, life can be just as stranger, if not just as fun as the books themselves.

The characters are lovable and though there is no falling through a rabbit's hole or Mad Hatter's tea party to be found, what readers will find is a perfect book for the holidays and vacations, that will leave you smiling, laughing and yes, there is a touch of romance, but in a more Laurel and Hardy sense that will leave you chuckling throughout the book.

The story starts off with a misadventure that lands poor Alice in hot trouble and what she discovers as she grows throughout the book, not only wisens her but touches the lives of all those who are around her.

This is just a really fun book to read and I enjoy reading, "Wonderland Creek" and the way it shows that hey, being a librarian isn't so boring after all.
