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 a wonderfully illustrated best pop-up book ever created. My 10 year old grand daughter loved receiving it as an Easter gift and spent hours reading and looking at all the pop-ups. It not only has the main pop-ups on each page but it also has secondary pop-ups on each page. The book is filled with so many of the most interesting pop-ups ever created. Well worth the money paid for this book. You will enjoy every page whether you are reading it to your child or your child is reading it to themself. And of course the story is a classic version of "Alice".

I opened this book at the store and my daughter, granddaughters (3),my mother, my sister in law, and my sister were standing around and we all oohh'ed and aahh'ed when we saw the pop up pages. I said I am buying this! (I bought it for my daughter to take charge of and it is for my grandchildren to oohh and aahh over again and again.

The illustrations and pop-up effects were excellent. The illustrations and pop-up effects are excellent ( young children would need adult supervision with the detailed movable art work ). The text is not as good as classic versions of Alice and Wonderland but adequate. This book is a beautiful work of art by this very talented artist. I highly recommend it.

I heard about this book and it's illustrator on the radio. I went straight out the next day to check it out. It is hands down the best pop-up book ever conceived of. I have long been a fan of Alice and her Adventures. Robert Sabuda has certainly given the metal images that come out in the story the grandeur and imagination that they deserve. This is a must have for fans of Alice in Wonderland, for artists, and for children and adults of all ages. When you see it in person you will NOT be disappointed!

You can't go wrong with Robert Sabuda and this edition of Alice in Wonderland is just spectacular. With every story he illustrates with his great paper engineering, Robert Sabuda seems to take his art to a new level. A real treasure!

Great pop-ups! But this ad copy is horrible: "text is faithful to Lewis Carroll's original story". What can that possibly mean? Either it's the complete original text or it is not. Stop hiding the ball! "Faithful" is too vague to mean anything. Barnes & Noble, you should clarify! It is my understanding that this is not the complete original text, but I have not done a comparison to see if it is merely excerpted, or is abridged, dumbed-down, and/or otherwise corrupted. Enjoy the pop-ups, read the original text-which is widely available in various inexpensive editions. Actually I recommend the complete Lewis Carroll anthology, which contains excellent nonsense poetry like the hunting of the snark and the Jabberwock, as well as through the looking glass and other works. What a mind!

Pop up books are always kid favorites, but this time it brought the story to life for this adult! I had never read the Alice in Wonderland book, this was the perfect opportunity to rediscover this classic with my kids. Our favorite page has to be the Tea Party Scene! There is no way to adequately describe the unique and imaginative variety of pop ups. I'm sure the story itself lends its nonsensical prose to the elaborate scenes displayed. You'll just have to see it to believe it! I had gone back to buy another for a gift and they were SOLD OUT! A first class pop up! It's so pretty to look at you'll find yourself reading it to them again and again!

This book (and the series in general) is wonderfully creative and engaging. It provides a new and fun dimension to the typical edition of this story and leaves the reader wishing more children's book could be so well developed and magical.

If you thought you knew the childhood favorite Alice in Wonderland, your sadly mistaken. The new and improved book Alice¿s Adventures in Wonderland written by Lewis Carroll is a completely different world. From the pictures to the characters there are similarities and differences. Its like reading a book and then going to the movies and seeing it. When you read the book you get to imagine everything the way you want and then you go to the movies and you see completely different things. Just as this book, in the children¿s book things are colored out and everything¿s happy. In the one by Lewis Carroll, the pictures are different from what I remember. For me that just throws everything off. I¿ve already seen it one way in the book, and that¿s the way it should be in my mind. You still have most of the same main characters. Of course there is Alice, the Queen, the white rabbit, the mad hatter, and the caterpillar, while on the other hand there is a mouse, a dodo bird, a lizard, a fish-footman, and a frog-footman. This book sends you into a whole new world letting your imagination run wild. Alice gets sent threw this world of crazy characters and nonsense. Your with alice every step of the way as she enters another world where anything goes. One minute your two feet tall, then you shoot up to a mile high just by eating a mushroom. You also experience an interesting game of croquet with the Queen and men made out of cards, while using flamingo¿s as putts. Alice meets all kinds of new people and animals, but in the end turns out to be just a dream. So ask yourself are you ready to enter a whole new universe and let your mind run free? Personally I did not like this newer version of Alice and Wonderland. I¿ve read it before and know exactly how everything should look and that¿s the version I will stick with.

I have always appreciated Sabuda's work but never felt the need to own one of his works (given them as gifts, but none for me). As soon as I saw this, I was excited... so much so that the friend I was shopping with bought it to give me. Every page is truly impressive, perfect illustrations for one of my favorite classics. Something that I found surprising was how much text there is in the book- not at all as watered-down as most adaptations of the story. I'm excited about Christmas for this single present!!!
