Pictures include scenes from Wonderland and its array of extraordinary characters. Pivotal moments from the story of Alice are scattered throughout for inspiration, and there are spaces left within some of the compositions for individual design and embellishment.

Alice’s Little Wonderlands Coloring Book  Review

Everyone knows I adore Alice in Wonderland so, of course,  I had to have this Alice in Wonderland coloring book.  I love all the different interpretations of Alice.   This one has a theme of the magic “drink me” bottle where every page has a bottle hidden on it somewhere.   Unlike a lot of Alice books on the market,  this one is suitable for colorists, young and old as the large spaced drawings are easier to color for all ages.

Cover & Layout

A thick laminate fold out cover protects the book with a sweet bob cutted Alice in a field of flowers overlooked by a buck toothed white rabbit.   Dashes of gold foil highlights add a touch of luxury to this partially colored cover.  The design follows through to the back cover.

An aqua spine forms a background for the title and author details in white.     The colored spine should make it easier to find on your bookshelf.

The inside cover has printed mushrooms at the front and bees and butterflies at the back.   You can color this if you wish.

Alice’s Little Wonderlands measures approximately 25cm x 28cm.

Ancillary Pages

A sweet little Alice decorates the title page for the book.  Over leaf a copyright and author page forms an elaborate double page scene featuring the white rabbit.    These pages would be great to test out your mediums and see how they react with the paper.

There is a 4 page short story at the start of the book with some elements for you to color as well.

Layout

Illustrations have been printed on both sides of the white, medium quality paper.  The paper has a light texture to it.

There are 58 pages that comprise double page scenes where the line art does run to the spine of the book.   At the moment the binding is quite stiff, so until it relaxes it will be difficult to color in these areas.

There are some pages that have a pre printed black background.

All of the images have been orientated portrait style throughout.

Alice’s Little Wonderlands Coloring Book Images and Illustrations

One of the things that I like about these illustrations are that they are suitable for colorists of all ages.   There are plenty of images with large open spaces for colorists that suffer with motor or visual issues.   The outlines are all black, crisp and mainly a medium to thick weight (there are some details in a fine weight).    These factors make the book very easy to see to color in for colorists with a minor visual impairment.

The characters in this coloring book look completely different from how I would imagine them.   The White Rabbit being far taller than what I envisage him.  Alice is also presented differently with a cute little bob cut and almond shaped eyes.    I love seeing the way others interpret my favorite fairy tale so it is always a little adventure to me.

In these illustrations we journey into Wonderland which includes illustrations from under the sea, in a bamboo field, intricate interiors and a variety of animals to color.   The illustrations are quirky and different from other Alice books on the market.    A lot of the illustrations concentrate on the time when Alice was small which gives you a lovely perspective of how the world looks.

There are a handful of pages that feature patterns.   There are quite a few positives to pattern pages.   They can help you focus and choose colors with their repetitive nature.   They are also great if they are the page on the reverse of a double paged book as you could sacrifice this page in order to color the reverse in the medium of your choice.

I’m Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I’m all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.

  • I have this book. Though I can’t remember where I heard/read it, in the coloring book itself or through an author interview, the author stated that the pictures were purposefully drawn large to make it seem as though you (the colorist) were seeing what Alice might see when she was very small after she shrunk–at least, I really think it was this coloring book I read/heard that about, lol (too lazy at the moment to get up to check the book ). It’s a cute book, but I’m not too sure that I’d have purchased it had there been preview pages on Amazon or reviews available at that time. Like you, I do think it fun to see how different artists imagine characters and scenes. I have picked it up on a couple of different “not so great health wise” days, thinking perhaps it’d be good to color in since a good bit of the book has larger areas, but then decided not to color at all those times. Ultimately, I’m glad I got it, if only to add to my coloring book hoard……um, I mean…… collection.
