Why did I love this book?
Everyone is familiar with the classic tale of Alice, but mostly the bright and breezy Disney version or perhaps the original John Tenniel illustrated book. This version picks up on the darker, more surreal elements of the text in illustrations that are perhaps a bit unsettling for some children (not mine – the more unsettling the better for them!). This book is so absolutely gorgeous, that when I first saw it on a trip to Barcelona, I just had to have it, despite not being able to read the Spanish text or having room in my baggage. But have no fear, an English version is now available!
