Katie from Year 8, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

One day Alice was sitting when she saw a rabbit with a
waistcoat and pocketwatch! She was really excited to see a
rabbit with so much personality so she followed him and fell
down a rabbit hole. Alice fell all the way down and she came
across some wierd and amazing creatures and people. I thought
this book was very good for under 10s.

Caitlin from Year 6, Sunnyfields Primary School:

I enjoyed this book because it had an intresting adventure in
it. Also Alice has a great personalty and such a great sence
for adventure. She meets a white rabbit who works for the queen
of hearts and yes she is a mean charcater. I would recomend
this book for a ten and older children because it has a few
words that younger children wouldn't understand. The queen
always has to get what she wants when she wants it. Also her
helpers planted white roses so Alice tried to help them paint
them red. But the queen of hearts found out so she wanted their
heads chopped off. In the end Alice gets back home and she
really had a great time in her wonderland. It was amazing! How
would you like it if you fell down a long dark hole? It was a
outstanding book which i loved reading _ the pages are really
long. But you will love it(it took me a long time to read it.)

Charlotte from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

This was a great book but it has complicated words that I
didn't understand. I love the pictures because they are really
detailed. There is a film based on the book. It is all about
a girl called Alice who falls down a hole and goes into a
mystical world.

I would recommend this book to the older generation but
otherwise it is perfect.

Charlie from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

I liked the introduction because it introduced you to Alice and
I learned some facts about her. Alice has two sisters, her
full name is Alice Liddell and on the 4th of July 1862 5 people
set out on a boat for a picnic. I liked the note from the
illustrator. I also liked the 'pig and pepper' because it is
active. Plus it had a little song/poem in it.

I didn't like the part where Alice was falling down the hole as
it seemed to take ages for her to get to the ground. I like
books where it gets straight to the point.

I gave the book 8 out of 10 because I enjoyed most of it but
there were some parts that I really couldn't get into. Overall
I think this is a really good book and i would recommend it to
any Key stage 3 students.

into shrinking and growing and a rabbit that can talk i
suggest, you read this book as i read it in a night i couldnt
take my eyes of it. i was up reading till 10 oclock it was like
i was in the book i could connect with it so well. Its way
better than film. In my opinion it was my fave book that i have

Laura from Year 6, Sunnyfields Primary School:

Alice in wonderland is an amazing book. It is one of the best
books i have ever read in my life. When you get into the book
you can just imagine yourself being Alice unless your a boy.
This is an amazing book andIi would recomend it to ages from
nine and over.

Molly from Year 9, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

I did give up on this book in the end that I am disapointed to
admit. This is a good book where Alice; an adventurous little
girl who follows a curious looking rabbit down a rabbit hole
and ends up in a whole lot of trouble, and her new friends (
the march hare is one of my favourite characters.) I gave up on
this book because it is a hard read. Alice keeps on muttering
to herself after the subject had ended which is one of my most
favourite part of what I read because Alice IS a young girl and
young children do wonder on about a conversation after it had
ended. I can count many times where I have done this myself. My
favourite part of he story is when Alice keeps on drinking and
eating the foods that make her grow and shrink, mostly because
it was the easiest part I could understand. I would recommend
this book to my friends but only if they were very good
readers. I unfortunately couldn't get into this book but it is
one of the most imaginative stories I have tried to read in my
life, and because I know the basics of the story allready I
know this is a good book to read.

Lottie from Year 9, Adwick Park Junior School:

In the book Alice in Wonderland, My favourite character would
be Alice. I like how she goes on a massive adventure and meets
loads of creative people and animals, like Top Hatter and the
rabbit who always looks at his clock.

Chloe from Year 8, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

I like this book because I like it when alice falls down the
hole and she meets a rabbit. The other bit I like about this
book is that when drinks the potions saying DRINK ME,EAT ME. I
think that this book is really interesting to read and it is a
really good book .

Charlotte from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

I like this book because it has lots of adventures. It is about
a girl falling down a rabbit hole. And going through a magical
world. With magical creatures.

I disliked this book because of the complicated words, which
are hard to understand. I also didn't like this book because
the pictures was not very clear.

I would reccomend this book because it is very good read but i
would reccomend it for older children.

Elliemay from Year 7, The Laurel Academy, Mexborough:

Well what a book, at first i found this book strange and unique
to read.I really liked the front cover it really caught my
attention and made me want to read on. the illustrations were
really bright and full of colorfulness i really liked loved
them. I really loved the front cover the illustrators drawings
are excellent.

I really found the some parts good. Like when Alice met the
Cheshire cat,and when she met the dazzling Caterpillar who sits
on an mushroom smoking a weird pipe.Well i wont tell you
anymore because it`ll spoil the story.

I gave this book a 8 because, in some parts i found it a bit
strange and weird. but i would recommend this book to anyone
who loves creative stories.

katie from Year 8, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

This story is about a young called Alice. Who fall into a hole
and then ends up in a magical world. Where she meets a white
rabbit, Mad hater, Tweedledee and Tweedledum. I have really
enjoyed this book because it one of the disney classic and it
has pictures in it.

Brittany from Year 8, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

I really enjoyed this book I found it great to read and didnt
want to put the book down. There is lots of detail in the
bookand I find it just right for my age (13) my favouritet
character is.. well, I have 2 Alice and the Mad Hatter. Alice
because she likes to explore like me and she is a bit
adventurous, the Mad Hatter because he has his own wierd and
wacky way , like he is a bit bonkers. Even though the book is
thick don't let it put you off because the pictures and the
structure of the text just makes you want to carry on reading.
I like the books but some of the characters have twist from the
originals - it changed because Alice has blonde hair and in the
book she has brown. Although it has changed it is still one of
my favourite books.

Jennifer from Year 9, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

A brilliant story. It is about a young girl called Alice who
chases a rabbit into a hole and ends up in the crazy world of
wonderland. She has a crazy tea party, talks with a cat and
plays crouquet with a pack of cards. I'd reccomend it to anyone
who loves a classic book with a twist. The only problem I had
with the book was understanding some parts of the language
used, but other people may say that is the best thing and it
isn't to be understood. The morale of that is to think out of
the box and use your imagination.

Kiely from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

I liked this book because it was interesting and excting. I
disliked this book at first because it was hard to get in to,
but near the end i got a picture in my head. This book is about
a little girl called Alice and she follows a white rabbit and
the white rabbit goes down a rabbit hole and Alice falls too.
There are cupboards all down the sides of the rabbit hole.
I would recomend this book to any older readers because it is
really hard and the words are really small.

Yasmin from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

I thought that this book was good once I got in to it. My
favorite character is Alice because she is adventurous and fun.
For most of the book she is a young girl. Overall it was a
really good book, I would commend this book for 10 year old
children and under.

Casey from Year 7, Ridgewood School:

I found Alice's Adventures In Wonderland very disappointing.
I read it, hoping to understand it more after my first read of
it with my parents a few years ago, and was upset to see that
my first impression was right.
My main problem was that it was, for want of a better
word, boring. It was dull, with too much description. The story
did not flow, and it was an effort to turn the page.
However, Carrol has a certain charm, so 6 for me.

Drew from Year 7, The Armthorpe Academy:

I loved this classic story! It is a great book following the
adventures of a young girl called Alice. This book is such a
pleasure to read and every time I turn the page, I get hooked
in by the fabulous creativity of the writer Lewis Carroll. I
have enjoyed reading this book on the classic reads because it
is unique and special in its own way. I would recommend this
book for those who have a huge imagination and for those who
like smiling cats and mad hatters. This book is my favorite
book on the classical reads because it is different with a bit
of randomness like talking animals and the twin duo Tweedledom
and Tweedledi!!!

chloe from Year 8, Ridgewood School:

I read the GRAPHIC NOVEL of Alice in wonderland!
The book was great, my favorite charicter was 'White Rabbit'
because he was wearing a watch and a waistcoat. For me the best
bit was when the White Rabbit sent Alice for some gloves and a
fan, but instead she drank some liquid whitch made her grow so
big that she crashed out of the house. the White Rabbit threw
stones at Alice but they turned to cupcakes out.

Read the book to find out what happens!!!

Matthew from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

When Alice follows a white rabbit down a hole she finds herself
plummeting towards the magical world of Wonderland. She is
astonished to see rabbits wearing waistcoats and talking
animals. She goes on an adventure where she experiences many
strange things including shrinking, babies that become pigs and
playing croqet with birds. My favourite character was the
White Rabbit because he is anxious and always saying 'I'm Late,
I'm Late'.

I think this book is exciting and hilarious and great for
everyone.
