ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND & THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

Leonard Weisgard illustrations for the beloved classic are sure to create controversy among those with nostalgic fondness for the Tenniel pictures. But we feel that children will appreciate the beauty and the fitness of the lovely Weisgard pictures and they'll make a place for themselves. They have warmth and vitality and humor, and an appreciative sense of the exciting pace of the dream world in which Alice lives. They'll lead the child reader into the story, instead of deterring them, as is the case with some children and the Tenniel drawings. And yet they are close enough to the traditional feel that children who have seen the dramatization wont be disappointed. Cloth reenforced spine-handsome board covers, with blond Alice and her cat Dinah on the jacket. Clear type face, with good margins, for a book that is more often read aloud than read -- at the start- to themselves. A big item for Fall- and it should have a permanent place.
