Read the Kirkus Reviews Starred Review that recently recognized Alicewinks as a book of exceptional merit “This sumptuous iBook presents a straightforward telling of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland accompanied by artwork that will send readers down the rabbit hole of delight.”
In ” Alicewinks, The 150th Anniversary Animated Edition for Tablet Computers” the newest version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, Alice falls down the rabbit hole and encounters many unusual characters and has many interesting adventures. The unabridged text is read by the narrator with the many characters’ dialog voiced by additional actors and actresses. The illustrations of 12 early 20th-century artists are used to animate her adventures and bring the characters to life. Thus, there are 12 different Alices each a bit different looking, and, as she herself says, she is constantly changing! Most of the other characters change as the tale proceeds as well.
Alicewinks features three magical components, the original 1865 text, 185 original prints from vintage editions of Alice, and a full-length video featuring animation of the original prints and text with a cast of voices and full narration. You can use the touch-screen to navigate between the book, pictures and the movie for a wonderful interactive experience.
