Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: Open Me for Curiouser and Curiouser Surprises

Lewis Carroll, Author, Harriet Castor, Retold by, Zdenko Basic, Illustrator , illus. by Zdenko Basic. Barron's $18.99 (0p) ISBN 978-0-7641-6333-3

In this enthusiastic adaptation, readers follow a stylized puppetlike Alice on her adventures, which are illustrated with elaborate mixed-media collages featuring a madcap assortment of books, clocks, and photographs, as well as doors and windows that open. One pull-tab elongates Alice, while another makes the Cheshire Cat vanish into an airy wash of eyes and teeth. The Mad Hatter's youthful, disheveled appearance makes him resemble a modern hipster, and the pop-up trial scene features a flying pack of cards. A clever and inventive interpretation. Ages 8–up. (Apr.)
