Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3 Up-A clever concept that doesn't quite work. This version of Carroll's classic is illustrated with a patchwork compilation of artwork from late 19th and early 20th-century editions of the book. The original tale is decorated with the artistic renderings of John Tenniel, Arthur Rackham, Margaret Tarrant, Charles Robinson, Gertrude Kay, Maria Kirk, and Millicent Sowerby. Unfortunately, the artist is not always identified along with the featured illustration. Also, it is difficult to determine a targeted audience for this edition. While it is certainly interesting to see the wide-ranging portrayals of Alice and her cohorts over the decades, true scholars will want to compare the entire works, not selected samplings. Contemporary children, accustomed to visual interpretations, will find the multiple depictions of Alice jarring and confusing. Why does she have bouncy, brown curls on one page and long, blonde locks several pages later? This "anthology Alice" creates more of a visual hodgepodge than the intended artistic mosaic. Alice fans will be better off sticking with their favorite editions or purchasing one of the many recent offerings such as Helen Oxenbury's rendition (Candlewick, 1999).

They are among the most idiosyncratic characters in all of literature.

It was the first book the we ever just read and read and read and read......and after an hour or so I realized she had finally fallen asleep just dreaming of Alice!

He has an interesting way to grasp the reader by the way he says and describes objects.

Format: Hardcover
Children familiar only with the classic illustrations by John Tenniel will be introduced to a wide variety of artistic interpretations of Lewis Carroll's immortal "Alice in Wonderland", compiled by Cooper Edens. This unabridged edition brings together the works of over thirty illustrators from the late 19th to early 20th centuries. The book is aesthetically balanced with both black and white and color pictures. It is interesting to see how each artist has visualized Alice and the rest of the eccentric characters. Some, such as A. E. Jackson's and Margaret Tarrant's, I found right on target, while others, like A.A. Nash's Shirley Templesque Alice, I found off the mark. But this is simply a personal opinion. My favorite interpreter though is still Arthur Rackham, whose art is featured prominently. All in all a very satisfying purchase.

I wanted to read Alice in Wonderland to my 3 year old daughter. She will listen to stories, but has a much better attention span if they are illustrated. This book has illustrations on every page. I know some people hesitate because the illustrations are not all by the same artist, so depictions of Alice are not consistent. I certainly didn't mind that, and my little girl didn't, either. She was ENRAPTURED.
We LOVE this book. It's become nightly reading at bedtime. It's large, easy to share with a little listener. It's also beautiful enough for a keepsake. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to share this story, or wants to see all the glorious illustrations done over the years, by many talented artists.

Format: Hardcover
So far, I have read "Alice's Adventures" twice with my daughter... The first time was a standard edition with black-and-white illustrations, and that was fun, though it took a while to get through. Revisiting the story with this ornate and wildly creative edition, which combines dozens of vintage illustrations from a number of different versions of the book, was a lot more fun... Although it can be mildly disconcerting to have the images and representations of Alice and the Wonderland menagerie change so much from panel to panel, at its heart this is a wonderful way to see the story -- you not only get a sense of how many different ways a story can be depicted, you also absorb a little bit of magic from each artist. Consistently surprising and evocative, this book breathes new life into a timeless tale. Highly recommended! (ReadThatAgain)

I have to say that I completely disagree with the editorial review of this book. My daughter is 4 and I have tried to get her to listen to the original Alice in Wonderland many times, but if you are a fan at all, you know that it is pretty advanced material for little kids. This version however, is so beautifully illustrated that it totally keeps my daughter's attention! Personally, I find the different illustrated versions of Alice fascinating rather than confusing, and my daughter does as well. It was the first book the we ever just read and read and read and read......and after an hour or so I realized she had finally fallen asleep just dreaming of Alice! What a beautiful version of this classic tale

Format: Paperback
"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is one of the most beloved children's classics. It has been adapted into numerous cartoons, films and plays over the years, and it has become an important backdrop of the World culture. It is a brilliant and zany fairy tale that remains fresh and engaging well over a century after it had been written. This is in large part thanks to the unforgettable and unique characters that are as famous (if not more) as Alice herself: the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the "Mad" Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and many more. They are among the most idiosyncratic characters in all of literature. However, the aspects of the book that I found the most fascinating were the clever use of language, the numerous puns, and the plays on the difference between the literal and actual meanings of different expressions and saying. It was very amusing to read these, and realize how clever and verbal this book actually is. The book made me reflect again on so many aspects of the world that I take for granted, and it made me feel like a child exploring and learning about various objects, ideas and relations for the first time. This alone makes this book worth reading and rereading, and I expect to come to it many times again.
