Goodreads Synopsis: 
Available for the first time in softcover! Join Alice on her whimsical journey down the rabbit hole. For the first time ever, Lewis Carroll's beloved masterpiece is faithfully adapted and illustrated in its entirety, including the long-lost chapter, "The Wasp in a Wig!" From her initial meeting with the White Rabbit in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, to her final dinner party with the entire (and outrageous) Through the Looking Glass cast, every moment of Alice's adventures in that astonishing landscape is captured in gorgeous detail. With old favorites like the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter joined now by a long-forgotten Carroll creation, The Wasp, in one of the book's latter chapters, children and adults alike can rediscover the complete Alice tale and fall in love with Wonderland all over again! 
Mini Review: 
I have read Alice in Wonderland and Though the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll previously so this story is not new to me, but I was interested in the visual elements of the graphic novel when I requested it for review. And I really do love the tale itself. 

The style of this graphic novel is fairly dark, Alice and her adventures are portrayed with a almost murky coloration - not saying that that is a bad thing - it lends to the quizzical nature of the story. If you have not read Alice before you may not know, but the whole thing is very macabre anyway. The drawing itself was beautiful and detailed and I think that it made the tale pop off the page well. This was a fun adaptation of the classic story.
