Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-This story of Alice Liddell and her relationship with Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) and his masterpiece is a busy book. It contains a fictionalized account of how Alice in Wonderland came to be; historical information on childhood life in Victorian England; puzzles and games invented by Dodgson; family trees for Alice, Dodgson, and Queen Victoria; a bibliography; and a walking tour of Oxford. The tone and style of the writing, apparently meant to mimic the literary Alice, give the narrator a distinct voice that is sometimes pleasant and sometimes irritatingly smug. Thus, the book lacks focus. The illustrations are flat and insipid, particularly in contrast to the many photographs throughout the story, most taken by Dodgson. The author is a devotee of Alice in Wonderland and has created a work that will appeal to others with the same passion. It is doubtful that the majority of those readers will be children.-Patricia A. Dollisch, DeKalb County Public Library, Decatur, GA

    The Other Alice

    This is a wonderful book that details the story of the real Alice that inspired Louis Carroll to write Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The illustrations are beautiful and accurate in depicting 1860's clothes and interiors. This book is entertaining for both children and adults.
