The Wonderland Alphabet: Alice’s Adventures Through the ABCs and What She Found There

Hot off the board book press this month comes The Wonderland Alphabet: Alice’s Adventures Through the ABCs and What She Found There, conceived and illustrated by Eisner Award-winning Janet Lee with verses by Alethea Kontis. From the preview below it looks like both verses and illustrations are a little strange and sometimes quite dark, not unlike the books that inspired them. What will our three year-olds make of the following? “Humpty Dumpty on his wall, / Called for the king upon his fall. / Then Humpty with his final breath, / Deciphered a poem and awaited… his death.”  I know several parents who might like it quite a bit.

An interview with Janet Lee appears on the website Comic Book Resources in which she describes the process of creation and the challenge of the letter “N.”
