Wonderland - Amily Shen

Look Inside the Book
Step into the magical world of Wonderland in Amily Shen's new book! 

"Look! Is that a rabbit running? 
Gentlemanly in a starched suit, 
pocket watch in hand, 
he mutters under his breath, 
looking flustered. 
Is he on his way to a party?" 
Wonderland

About the Book
Follow the White Rabbit into this imaginative coloring book inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, featuring intricate pen-and-ink drawings by acclaimed
artist Amily Shen. Meet the Cheshire Cat, attend the Mad Hatter’s tea party, and play croquet with the Queen of Hearts in this evocative tale that invites you into a strange and beautiful new world of coloring. Penguin Random House


My Thoughts
Alice in Wonderland has always held a certain appeal for me. The wild colors and names. Abstract ideas. I even played the role of the Cheshire Cat in our high school production. How thrilled I was when I opened Wonderland and found myself absorbed in the world of White Rabbits with pocket watches, Dodo birds, Mad Hatters and THE Queen of Hearts. There are nine "chapters" and at the beginning of each one is a short summary of the story as I venture through Wonderland. The illustrations are beautiful and they allow my imagination to soar. There are puzzles along the way as well. (And the answers are in the back of the book.) Thick pages with printing on both sides. Easy to draw on with colored pencils. Let your creativity run free in this marvelous story and express your own personality in Wonderland!

I received a free copy of Wonderland from the publisher through Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
