Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

An interplanetary landscape serves as the backdrop to Alice's journey in this fantastical rendition, which fits into a sturdy slipcase. Alice—whose long blonde hair is streaked with gray and facial features seem almost haunted—encounters a cast of familiar characters who, in Matthews's hands, have exaggerated, alien qualities: an especially bestial March Hare and a goblinlike Mad Hatter appear at the tea party, as a living tree looks on. In addition to surreal and vibrant full-spread scenes, b&w spot art often appears beside Carroll's text. Matthews's original and psychedelic conception befits the story's unworldly essence. All ages.

Format: Hardcover
Lewis Carroll's story of the young girl Alice who chases a rabbit down a hole and discovers a completely new, beautiful, surreal, yet, dangerous world is a tale beloved by both children and adults. There are countless editions of the story available. This one is published by Templar Books and is illustrated by Rodney Matthews. The book comes in a wonderful hardcover slipcase. The illustrations that accompany the story are quite lavish and capture both the absurdity and fright that is an intricate part of Wonderland. The book includes at least one or two full-color, full-page illustrations for ever chapter as well as smaller, black-and-white illustrations of a quarter-page or less about every other page. Very young children (probably 4 and under) might not enjoy this particular edition of the story because there aren't enough "pictures". However, it is an ideal book for slightly older children as well as an edition to read to younger children. This isn't the best illustrated version of the Carroll's story, but it's not too shabby either.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my daughter. This quality of this book tells you that it is meant to be a keepsake. It is very well printed on high-quality paper, beautifully bound, and comes with a hard slipcover. The illustrations are amazing, but I found their style to be a bit dark for my 7-year old. The book is very text heavy, making it cumbersome to read aloud to a child, and a lot of the prose itself is on an adult level. Although my daughter is an excellent reader for her age, she has lost interest in trying to get through this book. I have read it myself, and while it captures the story of Alice in Wonderland nicely, it is, indeed a commitment to get through.

The illustrations are cool, but the print is small. This is not a children's edition.
