Book review: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland illustrated by Carly Gledhill

This wonderful book is part of a series published by Penguin books.
The book is a brilliant introduction to a classic story, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland or as Penguin call the series a Bedtime Classic. The original story, a novel, was first published in 1865 by Lewis Carroll.

This book is aimed at the youngest of readers and includes key scenes with a short sentence on each page. Alice is illustrated as a brown skin character. This is my baby sons first introduction to Alice and her adventures. It’s a first for my girls and I to see Alice illustrated with brown skin and it’s great too see this.

I love Alices outfit too, dungarees and high top trainers. The illustrations throughout are engaging and vibrant by Carly Gledhill. I admire the varied details on each page, including the flowers used to frame my book photo and the typography used for action words are fun with fresh colours.

This is a great book and one that would be such a great addition to libraries and early years settings. The other books in the series include The Wizard of Oz and the Three Little Pigs.
