UK Kirkus Review »
The gift edition of Carroll's immortal books combines the best features of all past editions. Large format, clear type, Tenniel line drawings and the delicious colour plates prepared for the 1911 edition. (7-10 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
US Kirkus Review » Laszlo Matulay has based his big splashy colored pictures on the traditional Tenniel drawings, but the text adaptation holds small justification. The familiar rhythms and pattern of words which make Alice a family possession through life have gone, and what is left serves merely as transitional material connecting the favorite poems which, thank goodness, have not been tampered with. Boards. (Kirkus Reviews)
