The Holly Story Book Library: Alice in Wonderland

dscf0250This is a 1966 copy of Alice in Wonderland put out by the Holly Story Book Library. It has no ISBN and I can’t seem to find any information about it onlin. It was illustrated by R.Garcia and published by The World Publishing Company. I think the book is incredibly cute even thouh Alice does look like she’s dressed for Christmas and I don’t know why she’s wearing combat boots. But hey it’s okay! It’s Alice in Wonderland, so it doesn’t matter. This is one of the cutest non Disney books in my collection.


Alice in Wonderland Illustrated by Monique Gorde


These are some of my favorite Alice illustrations. They are so beautifully done. The book is like one that a story teller would use in an old movie. I absolutely adore it. The ISBN on this book is 0-7651-9188-1

The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor


I read this book earlier this year due to it being reccommended to me by a livejournal community. I thouroughly enjoyed Beddor’s approach. It reminded me somewhat of American Mcgee’s video game “Alice.” Some of the dialogue was somewhat juvenile but then again it is a young adult book so that’s to be expected. I enjoyed all the characters aside from Dodge, I found him to be a little annoying. I’ve read the second book and will post that within the next week or two. I’ve heard rumors of a movie coming out and it’ll be interesting to see how the books translate on screen.
