Robert Ingpen - Book Review

Robert Ingpen has Illustrated many classic stories such as, The Wizard of Oz and Peter Pan, along with many other books. Born in Australia in 1936, he is known for his "lasting contribution to children's literature" and won international awards.

Alice's fan's are lucky enough to have the renowned Ingpen pick up his pencils and brushes to create his own version of Alice and her adventures, that was then published in 2009.

 His delicate illustrations come to life as we meet each character while following Alice through Wonderland. While I sometimes question Alice's hair, I think it also somewhat fitting. With the pool of tears and all that growing and shrinking, who wouldn't have frizzy hair?

I just love this chubby little caterpillar!

You simply must check out this version!
