Overview

The fantastical tale of a young girl chasing her White Rabbit has delighted children since Lewis Carroll wrote it generations ago. Here his Wonderland shines anew, viewed through the looking glasses of two incomparable artists.

Mary Blair's vibrant art helped shape the look of Walt Disney's classic animated film. Collected in a picture book for the first time, her illustrations capture the essence of such memorable characters as the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter with stunning immediacy. Jon Scieszka's captivating text celebrates all that is curious-and all that is nonsensical-about the world that holds Alice spellbound, from a deliciously absurd tea party to the spectacle of a kingdom of playing cards .

Brimming with wit and wonder, this sparkling retelling will enchant readers from the moment Alice falls down the rabbit hole, whether or not they've made the journey before.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 4

This lively retelling of Lewis Carroll's classic creates a delightful narrative framework for the stunning concept art that shaped the look of the Disney animated film. Imbued with Scieszka's unique brand of kid-captivating humor, the effervescent text presents a streamlined version of Alice's adventures that adheres closely to the plot of the movie. The first lines set the tone and immediately reel readers in: "Have you ever tried to listen to a long, boring schoolbook on a warm, lazy day? And have you ever wondered why anyone would make a book so boring? Then you are just like Alice." Scieszka interjects amusing commentary throughout while successfully maintaining an appropriate once-upon-a-time mood. Blair's deep-hued paintings employ rich shades and dazzling color combinations to create a lush, almost impressionistic version of Wonderland. For the most part, the artwork unfolds as a logical visual narrative rather than seeming like a gallery of reproductions. However, observant viewers will notice that Alice's appearance is not always consistent, and that the images may not always provide the strongest interpretation of the text (for example, the March Hare and Cheshire Cat are mentioned but never depicted). Still, children will enjoy this eye-catching and entertaining production.-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal

Kirkus Reviews
As with 2007's Walt Disney's Cinderella, written by Cynthia Rylant, this volume showcases the color sketches of Blair, who was a production designer for many of Disney's classic animated films. Never intended as illustrations, her pictures effectively capture the look of the movie's costumes and sets-but the actual figures, from a chubby Alice on down, are just quickly-brushed-in placeholders or, in the case of the March Hare and the Dormouse, not seen at all. Matched to a text that has been whittled to perfunctory captions-"Tweedledee and Tweedledum happily recited their poem about the Curious Oysters. The Oysters were invited to dinner by the Walrus. But they ended up being the dinner"-this isn't likely to excite more than mild interest in children, although the art may be of interest to film historians. (Picture book. Adult)

Jon Scieszka

Jon Scieszka is the author of dozens of wildly popular, critically acclaimed children's books, including The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs; Caldecott Honor recipient, The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales; and Squids Will Be Squids: Fresh Morals for Beastly Fables, all illustrated by Lane Smith.

In addition to her work on animated films, Ms. Blair brought her unique style to children's books, advertisements, theatrical set designs and theme park attractions. She remains one of the most respected artists in the history of animation.

    Usually any book with the name "Disney" in the title would cause me to run in the opposite direction.  I can tolerate Disney films for my son, but "re-told" Disney books generally leave me cold.  My one really huge exception is "Alice in Wonderland".  I own at least four copies of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", including an annotated version, and I've owned the Disney film in every incarnation:  VHS, DVD, BluRay.  I've watched it many, many times and for many, many years.  So when I saw this book with the story retold by Jon Scieszka and with pictures by Mary Blair.  I had to have it.   For me -- although, I will read it to my son. 
    Jon Scieszka first popped up on my children's books radar with his "Stinky Cheese Man."  He has stayed on my radar ever since, although, I've only recently learned how to pronounce his last name properly.  His writing, especially of retold fairy tales, manages feel both contemporary and timeless.  I could still hear Sterling Holloway's and Ed Wynn's voices when I read the story, but the dated parts that I (sometimes) fast-forward through in the movie have been given new life in this book. 
    It turns out that Mary Blair was a conceptual artist for almost all the Disney films that I will watch for the artwork:  Sleeping Beauty, Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Peter Pan, Cinderella and, of course, Alice in Wonderland.  She managed a balance of dark and light in her illustrations that is perfect for fairy tales, and, really, pretty much any children's book.

    Great buy for any Alice fan

    I collect different versions of Alice in Wonderland and decided to pick this up. This book has beautiful artwork by Mary Blair. Although different from the Dinsey animation, it is still similar in many ways. This would be a suitable book for children and adults alike.
