“"a genuine taste of Carroll’s fantasy world in an age-appropriate format"”
“Somehow, Lesley Sims’ retelling of Lewis Carroll’s classic story manages to convey a real sense of the scope of the original in just 22 pages; in fact, her literary surgery is so skilful, it’s not much of an exaggeration to say that it barely leaves a scar. Mauro Evangelista’s dreamy illustrations certainly play an important part – strangely familiar, yet definitely original, they subtly flesh out the gaps between Sims’ well-chosen words, referencing additional characters and incidents… It works beautifully as a read-aloud book for a younger audience, too, offering a genuine taste of Carroll’s fantasy world in an age-appropriate format.”
