I loved the Alice in Wonderland Book as a child.  It is full of fantasy and excitement with one little girl in a world turned upside down and inside out.  The story delighted me and I always want to read to my kids, but I didn’t find a version that I liked that they would like.  I had never really considered one of these fancy shmancy ebooks might be the perfect solution!

AliceWinks Illustrations

AliceWinks , Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, is an ebook with the original 1865 text written by Lewis Carrol, illustrations from a dozen 2oth century artists and the digital technology of today providing animation throughout. The text comes alive with fantastic narration and voices for the characters coupled with moving illustrations that are nothing short of delightful.

I  wasn’t sure what to expect of the animation, but it is fantastic to see a dozen different versions of Alice intertwined throughout the story.  She was always changing, so it almost makes the story better to see so many artist’s visions of her from a time that has long since passed.  I love that my children are engrossed in the story and the art.  At ages 3, 5 and 6, they don’t always agree on what to read, but they all loved AliceWinks.  And, she actually winks on the cover of the book.  We all love this little touch.

The AliceWinks ebook includes in the entire story in video mode where the story is read to your child as well as each of the illustrations used in each chapter on their own screen and the full text with illustrations for better readers.  In full there are 193 illustrations! Even adults will love hearing this story read though, so don’t miss out!  We love flipping through the images after we hear the chapter and talking about what we like best and what is happening in the story.  All of my kids seem to be totally getting it, which is more than I can say for my younger two when we read longer books with no animation. If I had to list what I love, it would have to be the voices, the illustrations and the fantastic animation that exists in this book.

The little people as they may have looked many years ago, but with AliceWinks on the iPad!

Kids Reading eBook

AliceWinks received the prestigious Kirkus Star for books of “exceptional merit” and I can see why.  Celebrating the 150th anniversary of this enchanting story with a project like AliceWinks is perfect.  Bringing classic stories to our modern kids is not always easy, but it is important.  It is incredible to see what happens when a classic is retold using animated video and rich narration that includes the efforts of 19 voices, three animators, a music keyboardist, a subtitle expert, and a master sound mixer!  It truly is amazing. Not only do my kids now get to hear a voice from so long ago, but they can appreciate a different form of art as well and feel like the story is coming alive in this interactive ebook.  It is the same story I loved as a child, with so many new and wonderful ways to see it through AliceWinks.

The ebook AliceWinks is available for your iPad, through Google Play Store or on Amazon Apps.  It costs $9.99 and is worth every penny!

Here is the lovely Alice…winking!  We have thoroughly enjoyed AliceWinks and I hope you can enjoy it with your family!
