Synopsis
Timed to release in sync with Tim Burton’s long-awaited film version of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Rose Camille Garcia’s illustrated adaptation brings a dark, contemporary visual spin to this timeless story—the perfect companion to the director’s distinctive vision. All the iconic characters of the much-beloved original—The White Rabbit, The Mad Hatter and March Hare, the Queen of Hearts, and of course Alice herself—have been rendered in Garcia’s signature “Goth fairytale” style. As with the Calef Brown-illustrated edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which coincided with the David Fincher movie starring Cate Blanchett and Brad Pitt, this new interpretation of Alice offers a unique and compelling update of a literary classic.
Amazon.com Review
Source of legend and lyric, reference and conjecture, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is for most children pure pleasure in prose. While adults try to decipher Lewis Carroll's putative use of complex mathematical codes in the text, or debate his alleged use of opium, young readers simply dive with Alice through the rabbit hole, pursuing "The dream-child moving through a land / Of wonders wild and new." There they encounter the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter, among a multitude of other characters--extinct, fantastical, and commonplace creatures. Alice journeys through this Wonderland, trying to fathom the meaning of her strange experiences. But they turn out to be "curiouser and curiouser," seemingly without moral or sense.

For more than 130 years, children have reveled in the delightfully non-moralistic, non-educational virtues of this classic. In fact, at every turn, Alice's new companions scoff at her traditional education. The Mock Turtle, for example, remarks that he took the "regular course" in school: Reeling, Writhing, and branches of Arithmetic-Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision. Carroll believed John Tenniel's illustrations were as important as his text. Naturally, Carroll's instincts were good; the masterful drawings are inextricably tied to the well-loved story.
