"Rarely is the word ‘masterpiece’ used in reviewing anything, but this unabridged edition of a classic definitely brings the word to mind, in hushed and reverent tones." ——–
Publishers Weekly, starred review
"…Oxenbury’s [ALICE] brims with the fun and frights of a visit to an amusement park. In perhaps her most ambitious work to date, Oxenbury applies her finely honed instinct for a child’s perspective to create an Alice accessible to all ages. An ideal first introduction to a lifelong favorite read." ——–
New York Times Book Review, The
"Altogether, the chill is gone from the appearance of a story that after all remains frightening in its upside-down, inside-out logic. If Helen Oxenbury has eased children’s way to the enduring fascination of Lewis Carroll’s text, then so much the better, and more power to her." ——–
"The volume is oversized, the typeface large and friendly, the margins generous. This beautiful book quietly takes Alice out of the inky hands of scholars and places her back in the hands of children, where she has always belonged."
