Drawing inspiration from Carroll’s own photography, Foreman brings fresh enthusiasm to an already wondrous tale. Unlike many depictions, his Alice is “dark-haired and elfin-featured” (per the illustrator’s note) as the living Alice Liddell appeared in Carroll’s photographs. In spot art and full-bleed scenes, Foreman’s paintings appear on most pages, bursting with color and energy. White rabbits, mock turtles, and execution-minded queens look prepared to leap off the page. Also available: Aesop’s Fables. Ages 9–12. (Sept.)
