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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alice and The Queen
By Mozette on November 21, 2022
A must have for any collector of Alice in Wonderland and Lewis Carroll literature. I find it fortunate that I have this just before the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always Great Fun
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on May 26, 2020
As so many reviews on this site end up getting cross-posted I should stress that this review is for the Amazon Classics Edition of this book, which has the original illustrations, with those wonderful pictures by John Tenniel, and which have influenced all other illustrators of the book since. First published in 1865 of course Lewis Carroll was the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, who along with his novels and poems also wrote mathematical books, and invented and created things.

Still immensely popular and inspiring many others in the arts (not only with novelists) so this is quite possibly the world’s most famous children’s book and is always something worth introducing the younger members of your family to. Of course though, this book is still great for us older readers, as it not only brings back a piece of nostalgia but also, we can perhaps appreciate even more so the word games and other puns here. Because over the years there have been a number of other illustrators doing the artwork for different editions of this, and because our concerns and priorities have also changed so at times it is perhaps easy to miss the more symbolic things here, which show us a parody of life in the Victorian era. As the author was a mathematician so we can see that he alludes to this in places where he is scathing of the new mathematics that were starting to appear, and which would ultimately lead to new advances such as eventually quantum physics.

And so we read of here when Alice first went down the rabbit hole following the white rabbit who is late for an appointment. Just the beginning of her weird and wonderful adventure where we meet the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen, the Cheshire Cat and many other characters. Always entertaining and definitely fun this is a book that was a massive hit when it first came out, has never been out of print, and is an essential novel for any family library. To be honest there are not many books that you read as a child and can still remember many years later, showing the skill of the author here, as well as incorporating artwork, after all we are told to just look at the picture if we do not know what a gryphon is.
