Review of "Disney Alice in Wonderland Cinestory Comic," adapted by Jeremy Barlow

Review of

Disney Alice in Wonderland Cinestory Comic, adapted by Jeremy Barlow ISBN 9781987955057

Five out of five stars

 Mathematicians, of which I am one, regularly point out the Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), the 
author of the classic “Alice in Wonderland” was a mathematician/logician. No book ever published has a wider spectrum of memorable and original characters, it is a book that is just as entertaining for adults as it is for children, even though it was published over 150 years ago.

 This book is a graphic novel rendition of that classic tale and is based on the Disney movie, and it expresses all of the wonder and nonsensical dialog of these entertaining characters. I have read “Alice in Wonderland” and several books that contain commentary about it and when reading this version, I was once again amazed at the originality of the characters. The artwork is superb, the exaggerated features of the creatures adds to their imprint on your mind.
