"The quintessential Victorian children's classic, Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has been gloriously re-envisioned by pop-up master Sabuda. The bizarre settings and rude creatures of Wonderland burst out with every turn of the page, starting with an ingenious peep-show rabbit hole and ending with an explosion of cards." Kirkus Reviews
"Sabuda brings Alice's world to life with breathtaking, three-dimensional images that are incredibly imaginative, intricately detailed, and perfectly executed." Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
"This will very likely come to be seen as the definitive pop-up version of Alice, but it will also further establish Sabuda as the foremost visionary of the genre." Booklist
"[Sabuda] has created an object that is the most absorbing book/toy I've played with in a long time. The intelligent paper trickery on each spread is, well, awesome.... Sabuda has surprises on every spread, even given how well we all know Alice. Each scene builds the narrative (and I will not spoil the experience by describing them here), but the final spread is such an engineering tour de force that I can only sympathize with the expert Chinese printers and assemblers who laboriously constructed each copy by hand." Steven Heller, New York Times Book Review
