A modern retelling of the classic Alice in Wonderland by the very brilliant Whoopie Goldberg was a book I thought sounded amazing. Great, authentically hand-drawn illustrations definitely add to this urban fantasy of sorts, but I'm afraid it misses the sparkle and the creativity of the original. I think it is an important step in the right direction as far as having a black central character in children's fiction goes, but it could so easily have been more imaginative.

This is an amazing childrens book. this is a version of alice in wonderland written to take place in modern day new york. I loved this book as a kid, and probably read it hundreds of times. the pictures were not bright a colorful like i normally like, but they were extremely unique. the illustrations were all done in a caricature sort of style, making all of the characters look extreme and crazy, and awesome!

it was okay. a little long and not fun to read with the kids over and over again.
have a signed copy so that's cool--it was a gift from whoopi herself which makes it special.
