Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5-An abridgement of the classic story that makes it more accessible to young readers, while giving them a good taste of the original. Ross treats his material reverently, abridging Carroll's chattiness, but seldom changing his words. The full-color cartoons are unmistakably Ross's, but they stick closely to the composition and content of Tenniel's original black-and-white drawings, with some additional pictures (the nonsense of the last banquet, for instance, proves irresistible). This version has a modern air with the slightly oversized pages and sly, humorous artwork that fits the illogical craziness of the story surprisingly well. This con-artist Walrus is unforgettable, and the empty oyster shells with feet sticking straight up in the air are most memorable. Although one may occasionally miss the flowing, stream-of-consciousness style of Carroll or Tenniel's quintessential Tweedledee and Tweedledum, certainly Ross has done an admirable job of preserving the spirit of the masterpiece for the younger set.

From Kirkus Reviews

Pruned to something less than half the original (using only Carroll's language), with chess moves, verse, chaptering, and main events intact: an abridgement that may find some use as an introduction, though any child who enjoys it should be steered to a complete edition. It's not true--despite Ross's otherwise sensible introduction--that all the humor is here (where are the ``six impossible things before breakfast''?); but his forthrightly honest approach (even the title page reads ``Abridged & Illustrated by...'' in caps) merits some indulgence, while even purists will enjoy comparing his witty, freely rendered caricatures with Tenniel's elegantly limned art--which Ross's frequently parodies.

Unfortunately, this version is missing almost all of the illustrations, which are an integral part of the book. And the poetry is not formatted correctly and is in red on my iPad Kindle.Through the Looking Glass [Kindle Edition] by BLTC is the one you want.

This book is a great story and I really like how each little story moves along. This time Alice goes through a looking glass for a whole new adventure in Wonderland. Some characters make a second appearance while there are many new ones to enjoy.

An excellent tale to read to your children. It's a bit confusing at first, but, like all of Carroll's books that I'm familiar with, it gets easier and easier!

Definitely worth the hour it takes to get through this.
