User Review  - jwesley - LibraryThing

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a unique pop-up for children to enjoy. However, the book seems rushed and often makes me beg for more. Yet, overall, what I've taken from this book is that our dreams will always take us on realistic adventures. Read full review

This book is a beautiful pop up and has the exact story of Alice, a story originally by Lewis Carroll. This book has multiple textures, vibrant colors, and exciting pop ups. Definitely not a book i would just give to a kid to go through, must be handled with care. Read full review

About the author (2006)

Born in Daresbury, England,in 1832, Charles Luthwidge Dodgson is better known by his pen mane of Lewis Carroll. He became a minister of the Church of England and a lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford. He was the author, under his own name, of An Elementary Treatise on Determinants (1867), Symbolic Logic (1896), and other scholarly treatises which would hardly have given him a place in English literature. Charles Dodgson might have been completely forgotten but for the work of his alter ego, Lewis Carroll. Lewis Carroll, shy in the company of adults, loved children and knew and understood the world of the imagination in which the most sensitive of them lived. So he put the little girl Alice Liddell into a dream-story and found himself famous as the author of Alice in Wonderland (1865). Through the Looking Glass followed in 1871. In recent years Carroll has been taken quite seriously as a major literary artist for adults as well. His works have come under the scrutiny of critics who have explained his permanent attractiveness in terms of existential and symbolic drama: The Alice books dramatize psychological realities in symbolic terms, being commentary on the nature of the human predicament rather than escape from it. In addition to his writing, Carroll was also a pioneering photographer, and he took many pictures of young children, especially girls, with whom he seemed to empathize.
