While the tale is the same as all other volumes of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the illustrations by Yayoi Kusama make it unusual and more beautiful than can be imagined. I actually purchased two copies; one for myself and one for my 5 year-old granddaughter. These illustrations are complete works of art, in themselves, by a very talented, creative, imaginative and, sadly, aged Japanese artist. This book will be cherished for generations to come.

I already owned this book, along with Through the Looking Glass, but I just had to get this wonderful edition after seeing the YouTube trailer for the book: (...). Go ahead and watch it. I'll wait :-)

Awesome, right!? I'm a complete sucker for nice clothbound books, and I love contemporary art, so getting this really was a no-brainer.

The illustrations are amazing and they compliment the story perfectly, transporting adults into an imaginary world that's rarely available to those over two feet tall. For a story that's been visually adapted time and again by Western illustrators and filmmakers, it's refreshing to have a completely re-imagined view of Alice's adventures by this wonderful Japanese artist. In fact, the one problem I had while reading the book was trying to forget the movie adaptations I'd seen (particularly the Disney one) and instead allow myself to imagine it with fresh eyes. It took a little while, but I love the new vision that Kusama took me on through that timeless rabbit hole.

In regards to the story itself, I was so impressed with how cleaver and imaginative Carroll is. None of the movies really do the story justice. I'm pretty sure that Carroll must have at least been an amateur linguist because of all the ways he plays with the language. Actually, thanks to my former life as a linguistics major, I got so much more out of reading this than I probably would have otherwise. While this is undoubtedly a children's book, this is a story for all ages.

Whether you're a kid or an adult, this is a fantastic edition of a classic story. Rarely does a book make me laugh out loud, but Alice's adventure in Wonderland did just that - page after page. I can't wait to share this with my (as of now, nonexistent) kids someday!

This is a beautiful book. Our family had a chance to visit an Alice in Wonderland Exhibit and there were many different versions of the book on display. This was our favorite, so when I realized the museums gift shop was out I ordered it online. The graphics are colorful and intricate. They add to the story rather than distract. One we finish reading this book, I will be putting it aside to hand down to the next generation.

I collect Alice in Wonderland stuff, esp. unique versions of the book, so this is perfect. Don't know if kids will be into it bc the illustrations aren't that exciting, but if you love Alice stuff or like art books or this artist, it's a great book.

Bought as a collector item with all the recent hype between the 2012 collaboration with Loius Vuitton and Kusama - much cheaper than a purse!
Illustrations are bright and colorful and the cloth-like book cover is really attractive.

The illustrations are fantastic. A work of art. This is a must to have for Carroll's admirers. This is a fantastic version of Carroll's classic through the eyes of a great artist like Yayoi Kusama.

I have several different copies by different illustrators so I thought this would be a fun contemporary version. And it is. It is a nice hard back book with fun vibrant color illusrtrations.
