Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for 'Alice in Wonderland': "This is a real Alice for the present day, but nonetheless one it is easy to image living the extraordinary adventure Lewis Carroll wrote for her." Quentin Blake "Emma Chichester Clark's intelligent update of Alice in Wonderland makes it more accessible and less frightening than Lewis Carroll's original, complete with John Tenniel's dark, prickly Victorian pictures. Girls of 5+ should enjoy it." Amanda Craig, The Times --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Super vintage childrens book full of whimsy and all things that are wonderful about Alice In Wonderland!
Julie Burk
In fact, I liked this book so much, that I have just finished reading it a second time, and it remained every bit as funny as the first time.
S.K. Wells
My complaints about this edition are much the same as the free version of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" also available for the Kindle.

I was very disappointed to discover that this version of the book is missing pretty much all the poetry. The songs are shortened and details are left out. I advise purchasing the book rather than downloading the free version. This is one of my favorite books from my childhood and I sorely missed "The Walrus and the Carpenter". Not to mention the loss of the Jaberwocky. On a side note- I'd forgotten that the many Alice in Wonderland movies often combined the two books.

The poems are missing from the book, which makes it an incomplete work. Sometimes, I guess you get what you pay for.

Some of the poetry seems to be missing from the work, it really bothers me. You're better off to buy a copy than use this free one.

Format: Paperback
"Through The Looking Glass" is, perhaps, not QUITE as good as "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland", but it's close enough to still rate five stars. Not, properly, a sequel to the first book, there is no indication at any point in it that the Alice (clearly the same individual, slightly older) from this book ever had the adventures in the first one; there is no reference to her previous adventures, even when she once again meets Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Obviously, the two books are intended as parallel adventures, not subsequent ones.
The most memorable bits from this book are doubtlessly the poem, "Jabberwocky", as well as chapter six, "Humpty Dumpty". But all of the book is marvellous, and not to be missed by anyone who enjoys a magical romp through silliness and playful use of the English language.
(This review refers to the unabridged "Dover Thrift Edition".)

Although the plot is just a charming as ever, the poetry is missing. It's free, so nothing lost, but the sense just isn't the same without the poetry.

BLTC Press out of Santa Cruz, CA. has done another Kindle-specific edition in this Feb 2008 release. Note the first one they did of this Lewis Carroll classic but for Alice in Wonderland done in Nov 2007.

As with the first Alice book, this also has the same illustrator as the original edition which makes it a delightful version. The illustrations are scattered throughtout the entire book and work well on the Kindle.

Together, these BLTC Press editions preloaded onto a Kindle e-reader gift to an older child seems a fabulous idea. At $399 a pop currently for a Kindle, this does seem like an expensive idea and I'm not sure there's a way to control a child downloading at will books from Amazon but I'm so happy to see Kindle supported so specifically by publishers this early on.

If Kindle really takes off and e-books start to get some serious widespread consumer interest, wouldn't it be great if special versions of Kindle could be produced for niche markets like children. This could supplement physical books who have the edge certainly with their ability to do special features like pop-ups, color, sounds etc but for classics like Alice which are more conventionally text based and translate well into just black and white, what a great way to add to the mix and continue to encourage older readers to read more and watch less TV and play video games.

This is the Alice book that will introduce Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Red and White Queens, the Jabberwocky, the Garden of Live Flowers and lots of other fanciful delights to another generation of children! Makes great adult reading as well ~(;->

This edition will cost more but I think you'll find it well worth it.

This edition is a VERY POOR kindle choice. 5 stars are for the book itself. I sampled many Alice in Wonderland and all the Through the Looking Glass books I could find available (at Amazon and Gutenberg org - though today I discover some I missed). I believe I found that the best available editions, if you want both, are:

The BLTC at 1.79 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (BLTC Press Edition) - this edition is very well formatted with all the Tenniel illustrations that I recall and is the one I purchased myself.

The Bompacrazy at .99 Alice in Wonderland (Illustrated) or Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Illustrated) (these two appear to be exactly the same from the samples as both have the 'blotted out' picture of the Drink Me tag): this is almost as good a choice, though not quite as well formatted. The sample has a Rackham illustration (and there may be more) as well as the many Tenniel, though, which is a plus.

The free Gutenberg org versions - lacked the improved linking and formatting, but there are various illustrated editions; may be worth it to you if .99 is too much or you are looking for something other than Tenniel.

I did see a kindle version of an 'Original First Edition' Alice which appears to be illustrated by Arthur Rackham - in case you are looking for that one instead of the better known John Tenniel version.
