For those who want a little more of Alice before Alice:Madness Returns releases, you're in luck.  Spicy Horse has made an interactive storybook available for iPod, iTouch and iPad users. 

Those on Facebook can go to  and Android users are expected to be able to access it soon as well.  It's currently available as a free app.  
In it, players are treated to the story in between the two games, filling in the ten year game.  You'll be able to experience all of the suffering Alice experiences at Rutledge Asylum, giving players some insight as to why this new descent to Wonderland begins.

And for North American users, the app comes with a coupon code for $10.00 towards a pre-order of the game at the EA store.
