I've been a fan of Alice since I was quite young. Not just the Disney versions, I read the books. I love reimaginings and illustrated versions so I'm always on the lookout for something new. Sadly, this particular version was dull. I didn't feel like it brought anything fresh, which is fine but not what I was hoping for.
I do think this would be a great option for reluctant young readers who are struggling with the actual novels. Adults and long time Alice fans are likely to find it to staid.
