I cannot express enough how much I love the art of Mary Blair I collect all manner of Wonderland books and find myself returning to it time again If you are looking for beautiful art, color, inspiration and imagination you will absolutely love this edition However, if you are looking for the actual story of Alice in Wonderland Alice through the Looking Glass you will be sorely

for the actual story of Alice in Wonderland Alice through the Looking Glass you will be sorely disappointed This is a highly abridged version of the Disney movie as Mary Blair was a staff artist for Disney and created the concept art for the film I think it is worth noting that she also created the concept art for Peter Pan, Cinderella, and Song of the South The story in this has been abridged to the point of incoherence if you don t already know the story, you won t be able to follow what s happening, and if you do know the story you ll be confused by all the stuff that s been cut out.But the story isn t the point in this book The story is just an excuse to print Mary Blair s concept artwork from the Disney film And that is all spectacular Blair was an amazing artist, and there s a wild freedom to her style that matches Alice In Wonderland The story in this has been abridged to the point of incoherence if you don t already know the story, you won t be able to follow what s happening,

fairy tales very well, but his talent unfortunately does not translate well into this retelling of Lewis Carroll s Alice in Wonderland Perhaps I m an Alice snob, but I cannot stand to see such a brilliant piece of writing that adults appreciate the book as much, or perhapsthan, children is a testament to our innate capability to remember what fun it was to be young and full of wonder and curiosity and giggles dumbed down for today s youth The tex Jon Scieszka certainly writes fractured fairy tales very well, but his talent unfortunately does not translate well into this retelling of

testament to our innate capability to remember what fun it was to be young and full of wonder and curiosity and giggles dumbed down for today s youth The text is oversimplified and missing nearly all of the cleverness of the original Scieszka kept Curiouser and curiouser, thank the world , and all would have been lost but for the accompanying artwork by Mary Blair, the designer of the storyboards for the Disney film Blair s paintings uncannily capture the whimsical world of the book Disney s film transformed her gestures and intentions into a dreamworld that s my kind of translation Jon Scieszka s retelling of Alice in Wonderland was not fantastic but it is a good alternative for children who are too young to read the original version of the story This book follows the classic story of day dreaming Alice who follows a talking white rabbit down the rabbit hole to a brand new world, Wonderland This story brings in crazy characters like The Chesire Cat, The Queen of Hearts, and The Mad Hatter These wonderful characters are so creative that kids are bound to be drawn to this Jon Scieszka s retelling of Alice in Wonderland was not fantastic but it is a good alternative for

world, Wonderland This story brings in crazy characters like The Chesire Cat, The Queen of Hearts, and The Mad Hatter These wonderful characters are so creative that kids are bound to be drawn to this interesting story In this particular version the text is designed in a very special way For example, when Alice is falling down the rabbit hole the word falling slants down and the letters begin to fall away from the rest of the word I think this is a good idea and will grab kids attention not only to the pictures but the words as well This was actually the first time I ve ever read in its entirety the story of Alice in Wonderland nor had I ever even seen the movie I think it was a good thing to start with Scieszka s version, because well, he s Jon Scieszka, for crying out loud Very well done nice touch to use original illustrations from Mary Blair, the late Disney animator. Another adaptation of a classic children s novel complimented with bold art by Mary Blair Unlike Peter Pan however, the story isn t quite as solid, and what is left is merely a really nice picture book Still, a lot of fun for kids and adults alike I can t wait to get my hands on some of the other Disney books with Mary Blair art Read this to my younger siblings and cousins as a bedtime story while babysitting four of them, they loved it and were even still talking about it the day after, which is a rarity I love this series Perfect for 3rd grade Glad to see a new one released. This completes my trio of Jon Scieszka reviews, and provides an interesting contrast to the author s deliberate reinvention of fairy tales Here, Scieszka sticks rigidly close to Lewis Carroll s wonderful original stories of Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass, or at least Scieszka does so in line with Walt Disney s 1951 animated film portrayal of the stories Mary Blair s illustrations aren t Disney s own, but bear huge Disneyesque influences, especially with regard to the d This completes my trio of Jon Scieszka reviews, and provides an interesting contrast to the author s deliberate reinvention of fairy tales Here, Scieszka sticks rigidly close to Lewis Carroll s wonderful original stories of Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass, or at least Scieszka does so in line with Walt Disney s 1951 animated film portrayal of the stories Mary Blair s illustrations aren t Disney s own, but bear huge Disneyesque influences, especially with regard to the depictions of the White Rabbit, Queen of Hearts and Alice herself Although Disney is notorious for perpetuating Western stereotypes, male heroes and traditional families, the origins of this work lie in Lewis Carroll rather than the US entertainment giant, and I feel this picture book offers KS1 and even LKS2 pupils access to Carroll s work which they could not yet gain from his original writing at their current stage of development The book makes intelligent use of different fonts, letter sizes and page layouts to depict meaning alongside the words themselves, and for pupils learning about punctuating direct speech, there are lots of excellent examples here Perhaps I prefer the nonsense of Carroll s Wonderland to the nonsense Scieszka makes of nursery rhymes in Stinky Cheese Man the characters have depth as well as humour, perspectives deep enough to impersonate or perform, and comprehensible motivations and priorities Pupils could create character profiles, design and explain clothes for characters to wear, or act out favourite scenes, even writing their own screenplay before comparing it to Disney s own on the big screen And of course at UKS2, they might be tempted to go on and read Lewis Carroll s 1865 original books which even 150 years later remain entertaining, thought provoking and imagination inspiring for young readers today Join Alice as she ventures in a fantastical wonderland where her curiosities lead her to a Cheshire cat, the Madhatter, an evil queen, a white rabbit and many other abstract companions The story retold with new illustrations by Mary Blair gives a new perspective to the classic fantasy story that allows the audience to becomeconsumed in the mystical images than the text itself Readers young and old will come away with this story knowing that in a wonderful world of wonderland, things are Join Alice as she ventures in a fantastical wonderland where her curiosities lead her to a Cheshire cat, the Madhatter, an evil queen, a white rabbit and many other abstract companions The story retold with new illustrations by Mary Blair gives a new perspective to the classic fantasy story that allows the audience to becomeconsumed in the mystical images than the text itself Readers young and old will come away with this story knowing that in a wonderful world of wonderland, things are not always as they seem
