    In the past, all I knew about Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was what I heard or had seen in the movies. Alicewinks was a huge eye-opener! Who knew there were so many other wonderfully strange characters?! From the funny fish and frog footmen to the duchess and her morals with the pepper-obsessed cook to the mock turtle and griffon, all are very entertaining along with all the other characters like the white rabbit, cheshire cat, mad hatter and march hare, as well as Alice herself. This iBook is very interactive and allows you to discover new things about Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by reading the full text, flipping through beautiful, original illustrations from 12 different artists, and even sit back and relax as the whole story is brought to life through animation with a full cast of voices and sound effects. This is a new, innovative approach to recreating a classic story! I would recommend Alicewinks for children and adults alike. Everyone can enjoy this iBook and spend hours reading, watching, and discovering new things about the classic, original tale of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I hope that they create more interactive iBooks like this one!

    Whimsical and visually appealing, Alicewinks is the perfect animated eBook. Sometimes too much of a variety of illustrated styles can look chaotic and confusing but Alicewinks was able to harmoniously blend all the illustration together. Alicewinks gives life to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland through the animation. I can’t wait to see more!

    Alice Winks is a delightful ebook that educators for upper elementary school could use to teach literature in a variety of ways. Each chapter is nicely divided into three sections: video, pictures and text. Educators can differentiate their assignments as students have the option of reading and/or reviewing with the video and animation. Alice Winks also offers the reader a range of artistic interpretations of characters and events. Educators can support lesson plans with creative analysis of the art.
  • Great for Boys!

    Typically, boys don't warm up to Alice in Wonderland as much, for obvious reasons, but this creative version helps it capture the attention of even my 8 and 11 year old troublemakers! The animations are charming and done with a light touch so the original artwork isn't overpowered. Nicely done!

    Instead of dumbing down the language to be easier for kids to understand, Alicewinks uses new technology to introduce a new generation to Wonderland. Animating the illustrations from previous editions makes for an engaging retelling of a familiar story. Grown-up fans will enjoy seeing them come to life in a new way, too.
  • Wonderfully Odd!

    My Alice Winks Review In the beginning my mom said that I didn’t have to listen to the whole thing, but I said it’s not fun if you don’t listen to the whole thing. I really like how the book uses many different pictures from multiple artists; I think it was one of the smartest ideas in the whole story. I thought it was funny how the rat spoke because the voice had that certain flourish, and by flourish I mean his accent. I did think it was a little odd when the baby turned into a pig and speaking of odd, the Duchess was strange too. The dormouse’s story was peculiar when it said “treacle well”. Then again, it’s wonderland, it’s supposed to be weird. I don’t know what treacle is, but it sounds gross. It’s odd that the queen of “HEARTS” looks mean, if you know what I mean (no pun intended). I think it’s funny how the King of Hearts is kind of afraid of the disappearing, appearing cat’s smile. Then a couple minutes later, when the executioner, the Queen of Hearts, and the King of Hearts, have an argument, I have to go with the executioner’s argument of “How can you cut off someone’s head if there is no body to cut it off from?” If you have ever read the Spiderwick Chronicles, you would think of a griffin to be a huge, fierce animal, but in this book the griffin has a tea party type of voice, which I personally think is funny. I really like the mock turtle’s point when it said, “I mean what I say.” At the end, in the credits, I think it’s cool when there are a bunch of people saying “Off with their head!” And if you have ever seen Jack the Giant Slayer, it’s kind of like the end of the movie when there are a bunch of different versions of the Jack and the Bean Stalk story. All in all, I think it is a very good IBook and I can’t wait for Walrus & Carpenter Productions’ next IBook.

    I tried reading Alice in Wonderland once many years ago and couldn't understand it because of the many "English-isms!" With your version, I love how the animated illustrations keep the text alive and moving. This will be fun to share with my kids!
  • Delightful!

    Alicewinks is absolutely delightful - the perfect gift for anyone who has been or will be enchanted by the unabridged telling of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I had never been exposed to these 12 early 20th century artists prior to this publication. Can't wait to see what Walrus & Carpenter has up their sleeves next.

    This is a wonderful tribute edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I expect to get a lot of use out of this over the years. Right now my son is three and he enjoys the narrated video. They have a special technique of animating the original early 20th century illustrations. The illustrations are also presented in their original (still) form along with the full text of the book, arranged so that you can view the same scene re-imagined by different artists. I have to say, the presentation really enhances this already imaginative classic tale.
