Review
  • Grades K-3 The familiar story of Alice gets the pop-up treatment here. The long text (especially for a pop-up) is a condensed version of the original, and although it doesn’t have as much of the magic, many of the original story’s most memorable moments have been retained: Alice’s tumble down the rabbit hole, the tea party, and croquet with the Queen of Hearts, to name a few. The book has line-and-watercolor pieces of art on every page, but most children will be eager to see the four pop-ups. The scenes are depicted like a set on a stage and feature the story’s famous characters: the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts, and more. This book may be a way into the classic for those who just want the highlights. If you are looking for a completely different pop-up version of Alice’s adventures, try J. Otto Seibold’s psychedelic Alice in Pop-Up Wonderland (2003). -- Cooper, Ilene (Reviewed 04-15-2015) (Booklist, vol 111, number 16)
  • In time for the 150th anniversary of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, four key moments from the story—including Alice’s fall down the rabbit hole and her croquet match with the Queen of Hearts—play out in gracefully crafted scenes that expand in an accordion-like fashion when readers pull two tabs. A tidily abridged retelling fills in the gaps surrounding these events, accented by Taylor’s spot illustrations, which depict such scenes as the pool of tears and the mad tea party. Alice appears as a somewhat stiff, doll-like girl in an A-line dress, while other chief characters include a hawkish Hatter and a glowering Queen of Hearts. Though the pop-up vignettes may be the main draw for many readers, this abridgement is still an accessible entry point into the larger story. Ages 5–up. (June) --Staff (Reviewed May 25, 2015) (Publishers Weekly, vol 262, issue 21, p)
  • An abbreviated if recognizable version of the classic, with fine-lined illustrations augmented by a set of pull-up minivistas. Safran's adaptation preserves the original's general structure and bits of the dialogue and verse, though Alice's encounters with a hookah-smoking caterpillar, "Father William," the Lobster Quadrille, the Mock Turtle, and much else are gone. Taylor illustrates it with spot vignettes, plus an inset cover tableau and four pop-up constructs that pull open to raise and reveal multilayered scenes. Into these, Taylor places small renditions of the chubby White Rabbit, a cross-eyed Mad Hatter, and the rest in static poses while outfitting Alice in pink ballet slippers and a flow-y, sleeveless polka-dot shift. The effect is decidedly bland. Children after more flavorful takes on the tale, particularly those spiced with 3-D or other special effects, have a veritable banquet before them—from J. Otto Siebold's quirky Alice in Pop-Up Wonderland (2003) and Robert Sabuda's masterwork of paper engineering (2003) to the spectacular e-outings Alicewinks (2013) and Alice for the iPad (2010). Pretty. Pretty forgettable too. (Pop-up picture book. 7-9)(Kirkus Reviews, December 1, 2015)
