Review - Wonderland: A Coloring Book Inspired By Alice's Adventures

Watson-Guptill; 80 pages; $14.99; Amazon
While "Alice Through The Looking Glass" underperformed at the box-office last weekend, the famous story by Lewis Carroll is still very popular with readers of all ages.

Now available to purchase in bookstores is Wonderland: A Coloring Book Inspired By Alice's Adventures by Amil Shen.

Yes, coloring books are normally for kids, but publishing companies have been releasing a slew of coloring books for adults for the past few years, which are becoming more and more popular.

There is a small amount of text in this coloring book that goes a similar route as the original story. Here you are Alice, where you follow the white rabbit through small door that transports you to Wonderland. There you encounter the Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, the King & Queen and many other creatures.

Final Thoughts: I don't believe that I've ever read the original two Alice books, but I do recall watching the Disney animated movie several times during my childhood. For the last few months, I've gotten into the new hobby of adult coloring books, and I couldn't resist this one.

The 80-page book is split into 9 different chapters. The story here is basically the same as the Lewis Carroll's classic; though this version does start out at a cafe. The characters have a different look to them than what have appeared in other incarnations, which is good thing as it makes the drawings feel more original.

Overall, Wonderland: A Coloring Book Inspired By Alice's Adventures is a cute coloring book with fun illustrations that should appeal to aspiring artists of all ages.
