When absent-minded Professor Random misplaces the main character from Alice in Wonderland, young Henry Witherspoon must book-jump to fetch Alice before chaos theory kicks in and the world vanishes.
Along the way he meets Winnie Flapjack, a wit-cracking doodle witch with nothing to her name but a magic feather and a plan. Such as it is.
Henry and Winnie brave the Dark Queen, whatwolves, pirates, Strüths, and fluttersmoths, Priscilla and Charybdis, obnoxiously cheerful vampires, Baron Samedi, a nine-dimensional cat, and one perpetually inebriated Muse to rescue Alice and save the world by tea time.
Here's the list for this tour. Let me know if there are any changes that need to be made by December 22nd. There is still time to join!

You’d think Polly Martin would have all the answers when it comes to love—after all, her grandmother is the famous syndicated advice columnist Miss Swoon. But after a junior year full of dating disasters, Polly has sworn off boys. Now she’s just trying to survive her summer job at Wild Waves western-themed water park (under the supervision of ex #3 Sawyer Holmes) and focus on herself for once. So Polly is happy when she finds out Grandma is moving in for the summer –think of all the great advice she’ll get.
But Miss Swoon turns out to be a man-crazy sexagenarian! How can Polly stop herself from falling for Xander Cooper, the suddenly-hot skateboarder who keeps showing up at Wild Waves, when Grandma is picking up guys at the bookstore and flirting with the dishwasher repairman? And why, despite her best intentions, does Polly keep letting boys get in the way of her relationship with her best friend Jane?
No advice column in the world can prepare Polly for what happens when Jane convinces her to go on a group camping trip with three too many ex-boyfriends and the tempting Xander. Polly is forced to face her feelings and figure out if she can be in love—and still be herself.
Our next tour is for Swoon at Your Own Risk by Sydney Salter. This a 2010 release. This will be a 3-ARC tour.

Juggler in the Wind is written for teens and older by Wim Coleman and Pat Perrin. When a ragtag circus shows up in the town of Buchanan, Kansas, fourteen-year-old Randy Carmichael begins a quest beyond mortal imagination. Voices summon him, a godlike figure appears in his dreams, and supernatural adversaries lay in wait for him as he learns about his identity and destiny. When gods grow old to the brink of death, Randy plays a role in their wondrous rebirth. And when he falls in love with an immortal goddess, he must journey into a realm dreaded by mortals everywhere. By the end of Randy’s quest, our very world will never be the same. Juggler in the Wind, the first book of The Wand Bearer Trilogy, will be released in February 2010, to be followed by Star Road and Otherworld.

Don’t Know Where, Don’t Know When (The Snipesville Chronicles, Book 1)
What a nightmare.
Hannah Dias, California Girl with Attitude, and Alex, her laid-back brother, have moved from exciting San Francisco to boring Snipesville, Georgia. Life doesn't improve when they meet Brandon, a dorky kid who is plotting his escape from the Deep South, and the weird Professor, who has a strange secret.
Suddenly, the kids are catapulted thousands of miles and almost seventy years to England during World War Two.
They fall into a world of stinging nettles, dragon ladies, bomb blasts, ugly underwear, stinky sandwiches, painful punishments, and non-absorbing toilet paper. They learn so much more than they could ever learn in a history class. Not that they want to learn it.
But they can't go home unless they find George Braithwaite, whoever he is, and whatever it is that he has to do with Snipesville.
A Different Day, A Different Destiny (The Snipesville Chronicles, Book 2)
When you wake up in the year 1851 on a Scottish hillside...Or in an English coal mine...Or on a plantation in the Deep South, you know you’re in for a lousy day. Nothing for Hannah and Alex Dias has been normal since they moved from San Francisco to the little town of Snipesville, Georgia. Bad enough that they and their dorky new friend Brandon became reluctant time-travellers to World War Two England. Oh, sure, they made it home safely (just) but now things are about to get worse. Much worse.
From the cotton fields of the Slave South to London's glittering Crystal Palace, the kids chase a lost piece of twenty-first century technology in the mid-nineteenth century. But finding it is only the beginning of what they must do to heal Time.
This is an ARC tour for books 1 and 2 in the series. Each person will have them both at the same time. If you're interested in being part of this tour, please leave a comment with your email, country, and if you're willing to ship to Canada by December 20th.
