4 stars

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is Robert Sabuda's most amazing creation ever, featuring stunning pop-ups illustrated in John Tenniel's classic style. The text is faithful to Lewis Carroll's original story, and special effects like a Victorian peep show, multifaceted foil, and tactile elements make this a pop-up to read and admire again and again.

My father gave this to my children for Christmas because our family adores pop up books. My kids would spend hours looking through all of the surprises in here. There are even little books placed within the book to pull out and read. You will feel like you are right in the forest as green trees burst from the first scene. The cover is sturdy, but the pages are very fragile and not for young children! A great gift for fans of the classic Lewis Carroll tale!
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
