I went poking around a used-book store today, thinking about trading in a number of books that I have. I didn't see very much, which was disappointing, but I did run across one book that has me curious.
It's The Looking Glass Wars, and I wonder if it was any part of the inspiration for the recent Alice in Wonderland movie I discussed.
A brief look is enough to show it not to be the entire inspiration, but I wonder if it was part of the gestalt. I need to look into this book in the near future.
