It's a tumble into Wonderland, only scarier, with higher stakes and more interesting villains. There are fights to break up and fights to start, and the artists gallery at the back was so well presented it deserved to be it's own book.

This is one I borrowed from the library, read twice and then purchased so I could read it more slowly next time.

Brilliant for adults and for children who are able to sit through lots of text and details.

This book left me torn. On one hand, the art is top-notch, face-meltingly amazing and deserves five stars. The story is what took this down to three stars. It felt like Alice in Wonderland, but without the whimsy or charm. The titular Cursed Pirate Girl is hard to get attached to -- she's not very human, she doesn't have much of an emotional range, and she's too good at everything. But the art is good enough that you should read it anyway -- It's surreal, Heironomous-Bosch-like in its hallucinatory feverishness, and amazingly intricate.

the baroque drawings are an engrossing pleasure and the eighteenth-century style lettering slows you down enough to enjoy them.
