Alice in Wonderland: Disney Novelisation

Alice in Wonderland: Disney Novelisation by T.T. Sutherland

Based on the film by Tim Burton, and the screenplay by Linda Woolverton.

Published by Puffin, 2010

ISBN: 978-0141330464

Product Description:

From Walt Disney Pictures and visionary director Tim Burton comes a magical re-imagining of one of the most beloved stories of all time. Mia Wasikowska stars as 19-year-old Alice, who returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl, reuniting with her childhood friends: the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Dormouse, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, and of course, the Mad Hatter. Alice embarks on a fantastical journey to find her true destiny and end the Red Queen’s reign of terror.

From the cover:

Just beyond our world lies a place where madmen share their tea with hares and dormice. A queen enjoys a tyrannous reign, while terrifying beasts and immaterial felines roam her kingdom. There is a simple way into this world, and a young woman named Alice has found it. Join her as she travels down the rabbit hole and into a place called Underland.

Based on the frankly meh film. And why call it Alice in Wonderland, when that’s what most people think the original is called? I suspect this’ll get bought in error by people looking for the ‘proper’ Alice. What a disappointment they’ll get…

Grump.

Bought on amazon only in an attempt at completeness: Alice in Wonderland (Book of the Film)

Alice in Wonderland: The Visual Guide

Alice in Wonderland: The Visual Guide: Disney.

Published by Dorling Kindersley, 2010. Hardback.

ISBN: 978-1405352598

Product description:

Go behind the scenes of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Meet Alice, from Alice in Wonderland; now aged 17 she attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. She runs off, following a white rabbit into a hole and ends up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn’t remember. Step into Wonderland and come face-to-face with the characters from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, and satisfy your curiosity through tons of cool facts. You’ll meet The Mad Hatter, The White Queen, Cheshire Cat, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and more. Then journey through fantastic stills and CG character photography from the movie and discover all about Alice’s magical adventures.

Not as ‘DK’ as you’d expect: pretty much a storybook with photos and a few odd facts. Glossy and well presented though, but I suspect the ‘Visual Companion’ is more interesting.

Available on amazon: Alice in Wonderland the Visual Guide (Disney Alice in Wonderland)
