Review by gazzy
What is now called family entertainment, the story follows the young girl through fantastic episodes, with every magical element described.
Review by gbill
You have to love a children’s book that features a large blue caterpillar smoking a hookah. This is a classic of fancy and imagination, featuring iconic characters in the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, and Queen of Hearts among others. It stands up to the test of time and is an enjoyable read even for an adult; there is a lot of cuteness here. I love the different branches of arithmetic per the Mock Turtle: “Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision."
Review by TheDivineOomba
I've never seen the Disney movie, or read the book before this. I wasn't sure what I was getting into. What I found was a very enjoyable read, not dated, full of delightful nonsense, gentle satire, and a perfectly little girl. I can see why this is a classic. Small children will love the nonnensical plot, while older kids and adults will enjoy the puzzles that are cleverly hidden inside the story line. A true classic.

This classic children's book is a timeless tale that captures children's imagination. This book can be used to introduce upper elementary students to math concepts such as graphing and beginning geometry. Using the characters in the book which are depicted as a deck of cards, children can explore laws of probability using a standard deck of playing cards.
Review by TiffanyAK
The edition I read was actually an online version with the same illustrations and everything. It is a rather fun book, and is certainly far deeper than the "children's book" that it is depicted to be on its surface. I wouldn't say I loved it, but it was certainly worth finally reading the book behind a story I have heard so much about. The language twists alone made it well worth it, as there is definitely a lot of creativity there.
