KIRKUS REVIEW

I may be a rebel, but I cannot join the ranks of boosters for this cluttery, crowded picture map of Alice. There seems to me to be no design nor logic; it neither enriches nor stimulates interest in the story, but strikes me as an undistinguished, motley arrangement of watered-down Tennielesque characters from the original. The dominant pinkish tone makes it of little decorative value. Children who are familiar with the classic text may enjoy picking out -- as in a Pame -- the familiar characters. But once that is done, any value evaporates. The scenes and incidents are numbered and itemized by quotations from the text in captions across the bottom. Probably the merchandise aspects will be increased by the use of the map as display in store windows and book departments.
