This modernized and condensed retelling of Lewis Carroll's 1865 children's classic captures the spirit of the original text, and is enhanced with brilliant full-color artwork that suggests the Victorian styles of original illustrator John Tenniel and many other Alice illustrators who followed him. But the artwork in this brand-new edition differs from all others in a very important way. It's enhanced with a variety of extra features to delight young readers and add to the story's excitement. They include--
A pull-tab that makes Alice grow and grow
A pop-up courtroom scene
Doors on flaps that open to show an assortment of curious objects
A special tab that makes the Cheshire Cat magically disappear
An attached Mushroom Booklet that helps Alice return to normal size Kids will love reading this famous tale, which has delighted readers of all ages for nearly a century and a half--and they'll be enchanted by the magical illustrations on every page. Publication of this new retelling of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is timed to coincide with the widely anticipated release of Tim Burton's new film from the Disney Studios, Alice in Wonderland, starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice.
