Perhaps uniquely in all of literature, Alice in Wonderland has, over the years, lent itself to many different styles of interpretation. Whether straight imitation of the original, steampunk fantasy, gothic horror story, superhero comic book, or detective adventure, it seems that there is room for every possible variation.
By contrast, we are both lifelong students of the original stories and have firmly set our sights on producing as accurate a pastiche as possible, emulating the true Carrolian style. We have used songs and riddles in his style, created new characters that we hope he would approve of, and attempted, as far as possible, to have a voice as if Carroll himself had written it.
Alice is the same little girl that she always was. Wonderland and Looking Glass characters pop up in various guises and, with a few specific and intentional exceptions, everything is true to the original era.
