Review
  • Gr 3–6— Carroll's unabridged text is accompanied by abundant illustrations that will draw readers into the tale. In fact, the eye-catching volume—with its pleasing autumn-hued palette, an illustration on almost every spread, and pages that organically merge text with visual images—is designed so that the narrative and artwork propel the story in equal measure. Each chapter is introduced by a colorful full-bleed painting depicting events to come. Copious single- and double-page illustrations and smaller insets, some in full-color and some in monochromatic tones, appear throughout the book, adding detail to the adventure and underscoring its emotional impact. Filled with soft textures and dramatic shadowing, Ingpen's artwork blends realism with whimsy. While Wonderland looks much like the English countryside and the characters have a Victorian air about them, shifting viewpoints and playful perspectives keep the mood fanciful. An endnote about "The Original Alice" and reproductions of Carroll's manuscript are appended. An inviting layout and plentiful artwork make this book a good choice for independent readers who may need a bit of encouragement, as well as for one-on-one sharing with younger children.—Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal --Joy Fleishhacker (Reviewed February 1, 2010) (School Library Journal, vol 56, issue 2, p106)
  • A pensive, titian-haired Alice trips down the rabbit hole in this adaptation that pairs the classic story with gracefully expressive illustrations. Ingpen’s detailed visions of the menagerie of creatures Alice meets lend them anthropomorphic qualities while remaining anatomically precise. The Cheshire cat, who peers out at Alice from a crowd of leaves with a milk-tooth smile, does so with kittenish serenity. The infamous tea-party is a cozy affair with intimate soft-focus portraits in pencil of the sleepy dormouse, hare (who dips his watch into his cup of tea) and the rather bleary Mad Hatter, whose pencil-drawn sidewise glances suggest it’s all dreamy good fun. A lovely and faithful interpretation. Ages 10–up. (Nov.) --Staff (Reviewed October 5, 2009) (Publishers Weekly, vol 256, issue 40, p51)
