Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Pop-up guru Robert Sabuda performs his paper engineering magic again with this stunning adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic tale.

With large and small textured pop-ups -- some of the animals are actually furry -- that will dazzle you with their intricacy and inventiveness, Sabuda's rendition tells the familiar tale of Alice as she falls down the rabbit hole and makes her way through Wonderland. The book features artwork based on John Tenniel's time-honored illustrations and text that follows the original story, and each spread includes several smaller pop-ups in "subpages," along with larger pop-ups taking center stage. Some of the amazing must-sees are Alice's initial fall down to Wonderland (with an accordion-like feature labelled "Open me" to pull up and peek into); the Mad Hatter's tea party, with silvery dishware that includes a fuzzy dormouse; and the croquet match that opens wide. But it's the final final spread of Alice and a flurrying pack of cards (all 52 cards are there) that is sure to put you over the blissful edge.

With bestselling renditions like The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and The Night Before Christmas under his belt, Sabuda checks off another classic and keeps his fans cheering for more. The creator simply gets better with each book, adding extras that always push the limits. This treat is an adventure that you won't want to miss. Matt Warner

The New York Times
[Sabuda] has created an object that is the most absorbing book/toy I've played with in a long time. The intelligent paper trickery on each spread is, well, awesome. Moreover, Sabuda's faithful adaptation of the original Carroll text is a pleasure to read. It appears on separate page flaps that are pasted on the side of each of the six spreads, adjacent to an exploding main tableau that rather than simply unfolding, literally flies off the page (watch out for your eyes). — Steven Heller
Publishers Weekly
Readers will be astonished by every tableau in this pop-up extravaganza. The initial spread explodes into a surprisingly tall green forest, topped by billowing leafy shapes that resemble the Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts. On the lawn below, in papery 3D, Alice scurries about while the White Rabbit checks his pocket watch. Along the left-hand border of the book, a series of narrow flaps present an adaptation of Lewis Carroll's text. These pages-within-pages feature pop-ups of a green bottle ("Drink me") that shrinks Alice, a cake that makes her a giant and Alice swimming in "the pool of tears that she had wept when she was nine feet high." Finally, an accordion-pleated square in the lower right corner expands into a long, vertical rabbit hole; through its circular window, Alice can be seen falling, as if into a well. And that's only the beginning. Subsequent stages of this moveable feast include a wiggly Alice grown too large for the White Rabbit's house; a Mad Tea Party with shining silver-foil tea service (the March Hare and Mad Hatter dunk the Dormouse in a teapot); and Alice waving her arms as the Queen and her court, transformed to a "pack of cards," arch over her head like a rainbow. Those who know the story can best negotiate this wonderland, for the narrative gets a bit lost in the visual dimensions. Sabuda, who also has adapted The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, borrows from the Tenniel illustrations, but pares them down and drenches them with violet, fuschia, gold and green hues. His paper engineering snaps solidly into place, and elements like the Cheshire Cat's unfolding face are both startling and beautiful; and the pack of cards rising up into the air will have the audience studying how Sabuda created the effect of scattering and tumbling. A Jabberwocky cheer of "O frabjous day! Calloo, callay!" seems appropriate for this salute to Carroll's classic. All ages. (Oct.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Alice is quietly sitting on the riverbank with her sister. Her sister is reading a book which Alice is sure must be a very dull book on account of the fact that the book has no picture or conversations. Then Alice sees a white rabbit running past. This in itself is not all that odd. What is odd it that the rabbit is talking to itself. Alice has never seen a talking rabbit. Without stopping to think Alice sets off in hot pursuit and thus begins her extraordinary adventures. Alice soon finds herself falling down a terribly long rabbit hole and from that time onwards, as Alice says, "curiouser and curiouser" things keep happening to her. Alice finds herself in situations where she keeps changes sizes; she goes for a swim in her own tears; she attends the most peculiar tea party; and a queen threatens to cut off her head (among other things). Though there are only six double page spreads in the book, each spread contains a considerable amount of Alice's bizarre story. There is one very large and highly complicated pop-up in the middle of the double page and to the side of this main pop-up there is a mini book describing Alice's adventures. Within the book more pop-ups with moving parts, and foil papers can be found. To say that this is a glamorous and remarkable book is an understatement. Just when you think that you have seen it all you discover some new surprise, some hidden piece or part. A pop-up adaptation of Lewis Carroll's original tale. 2003, Simon and Schuster, Ages 6 up.
— Marya Jansen-Gruber
School Library Journal
K-Gr 6-Sabuda brings Alice's world to life with breathtaking, three-dimensional images that are incredibly imaginative, intricately detailed, and perfectly executed. Carroll's text has been significantly abridged, and although some scenes are a bit choppy, the quickly paced narrative retains the flavor of the original. Sabuda's illustrations pay homage to John Tenniel's artwork, while providing a fresh look at the story and offering details that add greatly to the reading experience. The events unfold in six glorious spreads, each featuring a large pop-up and a narrow booklet that opens into several pages containing the text as well as additional pop-ups. The first scene depicts Alice and her sister on the riverbank, and the faces of several Wonderland characters are camouflaged among the background trees. A pull-up panel provides a "Victorian peep show" view of Alice falling down the rabbit hole. Throughout, shiny foils highlight items such as pots and pans, and felt adds textured detail to the Cheshire Cat and other fuzzy animals. A movable inset transforms the face of the Duchess's offspring from a baby's to a pig's. As a page is turned, a gardener raises his paintbrush and a piece of cellophane changes a white rose to red. In the final spread, a frightened Alice waves her arms beneath a delicate arch of cards. In addition to pulling off feats of paper engineering, the artist also manages to create compositions that provide an eye-pleasing balance of colors, shapes, and action. Much too delicate to circulate, libraries may still want to purchase this book for displays and just for showing off.-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Girl falls down a rabbit hole, cries buckets, has a spot of bother about size, plays some croquet, and wakes up in time for tea. The quintessential Victorian children's classic, Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has been gloriously re-envisioned by pop-up master Sabuda. The bizarre settings and rude creatures of Wonderland burst out with every turn of the page, starting with an ingenious peep-show rabbit hole and ending with an explosion of cards. She's a familiar Alice; Sabuda, while paying homage to original illustrator Sir John Tenniel, uses vibrant colors, thick black outlines, and foil to create a work that is uniquely his. The text is abridged with most of the nonsense poetry left out; perhaps this engaging version will send a few new fans to the original. Carroll, no slouch in the paper-engineering department himself (he designed a disappearing Cheshire Cat stamp case), would be pleased. (Picture book. All ages)

Meet the Author

Lewis Carroll

Robert Sabuda is one of the most innovative and inventive children's book creators and is known worldwide for his amazing pop-up paper engineering. His books include Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Twelve Days of Christmas, The Night Before Christmas, The Winter's Tale, Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast, to name but afew, have garnered numerous awards and have made the New York Times bestseller lists on many occasions. He lives in New York City.

Biography

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was a man of diverse interests -- in mathematics, logic, photgraphy, art, theater, religion, medicine, and science. He was happiest in the company of children for whom he created puzzles, clever games, and charming letters.

As all Carroll admirers know, his book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), became an immediate success and has since been translated into more than eighty languages. The equally popular sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872.

The Alice books are but one example of his wide ranging authorship. The Hunting of the Snark, a classic nonsense epic (1876) and Euclid and His Modern Rivals, a rare example of humorous work concerning mathematics, still entice and intrigue today's students. Sylvie and Bruno, published toward the end of his life contains startling ideas including an 1889 description of weightlessness.

The humor, sparkling wit and genius of this Victorian Englishman have lasted for more than a century. His books are among the most quoted works in the English language, and his influence (with that of his illustrator, Sir John Tenniel) can be seen everywhere, from the world of advertising to that of atomic physics.

    Of Facts and Chaos

    Alice in Wonderland is an imaginative satire on the British education system of the nineteenth century. The unreasonable environment in which the story takes place exemplifies all the shortcomings of the British education system as seen by Lewis Carroll, evident in the often inverted situations Alice constantly encounters throughout the course of the story. It is clearly evident in this story that Lewis Carroll questioned the worth of British education. Pandemonium seems to omnipresent throughout the entire story. The fantastic qualities of the setting in conjunction with Alice¿s character traits allow for the most unreasonable events to occur. Thus, the conditions favor events that are more bizarre. Had the principles of a more solid education been engrained in Alice, the story would probably have ended abruptly as soon as she realized the ridiculousness of it all. However, because she was not adequately educated, the British education reflected in her actions and speech. Oftentimes, she refers to knowledge of subjects that she learns in school, but it would all come out wrong. Her knowledge of science is obviously incorrect and the verses she recites have substituted words that completely distort the verse. Yet through her warped reasoning and the aid of the chaotic environment, she is somehow able to make sense of it all! Clearly, these anomalies suggest that the British education system was far from useful and adequate during the nineteenth century. Although presented in the imaginative manner of a children¿s book, the message embedded within Alice in Wonderland is still clear. Only with British education of the nineteenth century can people go through an experience like that of Alice, unable to realize the ridiculousness surrounding them.

    Fun to read!

    This book was fun and easy to read. It's a nice break from the real world and very imaginative. I read it because my geometry book was based on some of the puns.

    Classic!

    Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is the classic story of a young girl adventures in an imaginative world were nothing is at it should be. Adventures in Wonderland changed children's literature forever, before this book came out story's for children had to be instructive with a moral lesson. Now children's books could just be fun, we all owe a debt to Lewis Carroll who changed what we read.

    I Also Recommend:

    Classic story ruined by lousy art

    I'll never understand why anyone would want to re-illustrate a book whose illustrations are as iconic as the book itself. John Tenneil's work on the original books needs no replacing and certainly not with the mess I'm confronted with here. Camille Rose Garcia may have a place in the world of art. I'm sure there are those who like this sort of thing and I can see where something could be made of such a style. What *cannot* be made from it is a decent representation of Alice and the denizens of Wonderland. By making *everything* crazy and over-the-top, Garcia destroys the dichotomy of the story of normal Alice amongst the strageness of Wonderland.

    Take my advice. Avoid this edition and stick to those that use the original Tenniel illustrations.

    A Hilarious Adventure, seriously, read it now

    A wonderfully hilarious book about the adventures of a little girl, Alice, and her exploits in the outrageous world of Wonderland. Alice is a simple 7-and-a-half-year-old that falls down a rabbit hole, and into a land of wonder, filled to the brim with hilarious and quirky characters. As she meanders around wonderland, she meets many a strange character. A condescending caterpillar and a magnificent mad hatter are just some of the people Alice has the pleasure of making the acquaintance. This is a book about the fun a merriment a child’s imagination holds. This is my all time favorite book. There are numerous clever little jokes that only a very learned person may catch. If you are looking for a side-splitting read full of child-like innocence, this is the book for you. This isn’t a book about action, it’s about fun. Trust me, this book will make you relive the days when you were a child, and your imagination was as big as the sky. Note: this book is quite old and contains a lot of archaic terms; it can get a little confusing.

    Superb Alice in Wonderland pop-up book

    This is an excellent pop-up book of Alice in Wonderland. There are details on every page so go through it slowly. You would think the falling deck of cards would be my favorite, but it was the pull up where Alice in falling into Wonderland. Make sure light is shining from the side and you'll see what I mean.

    This Is An Amazing Book!

    Well, Alice Adventure's in Wonderland is an amazing book to read. The plot of the story is amazing. It has a climax and rising action. The problem of the story is that Alice ends up in the world of Wonderland where fantasy and imagination control the land. The problem of the story is that Alice can't find her way to the real world. She comes into many problems with different people or animals. Example: Like when the caterpillar gave her a mushroom to eat.

    I enjoyed the novel because of talking animals and how Lewis Carroll used his imagination with the story. I loved how all the characters are different with different personalities. None of the characters are the same. The characters in this novel are animals that talk. Alice is an English child who is very wise, confident , and intelligent. the Queen of Hearts is an evil person in this novel, she is the villan. The King of Hearts is even scared of her. Hatter is one of the people who is at the tea party with Alice. March Hare was also with Alice through the story. The Dormouse was a mouse who was always around with everyone. The Duchess were part of the Tea party as well. And Cheshire Cat is also an evil animal. He likes to disappear and reappear. He is an animal who always loves to grin. Well hope that you guys enjoy reading this novel. (:

    n his colorful new illustrations for a much-illustrated classic,

    n his colorful new illustrations for a much-illustrated classic, Browne strikes exactly the right note: he pays homage to the inescapable Tenniel in the moments he depicts and even in the way he depicts them, but in his own highly individual style; he includes a satisfying number of full-page and smaller illustrations, but not so many that they overwhelm the text. His paintings are cool and clean, each detail rendered with sharp precision. Browne's fans will not be surprised to find satire as well as a comic spirit: the cook's apron is tied with a string of sausages; the Duchess's headdress and nostrils give a remarkably piggish cast to her tweezed, matronly face; the Mouse has a toad for a tie, a fish in his pocket, and a tail that follows the pattern of his subsequent tale; the shelved rabbit-hole is full of curious, surrealist treasures; and such Browne familiars as a chimp and a gorilla make quiet appearances in crowd scenes. You may not have known you needed another Alice, but you need this one.
