Disney Alice In Wonderland Coloring Book Review
As most readers will know, I have a soft spot for Alice in Wonderland. A massive soft spot. Any Alice in Wonderland Colouring Book that I see I can rarely walk past, such is my love for Lewis Carroll’s famous fairy tale.
For so long I have been eyeing off this Japanese colouring book based on Alice in Wonderland but it never made it to my basket. One of the reasons why, was that it was a lower price than the other Alice in Wonderland colouring books and that made me think that it was more magazine style than colouring book format.
Finally, I took the plunge and purchased my Alice book so that she could join all her other interpretations in illustrative form of Alice in Wonderland on my shelf (and I am glad that I did!)
Cover & Layout
The cover features a partially coloured cartoonish version of Alice, the Mad Hatter and the White Rabbit. Of course, I am very particular about how my bunnies are portrayed in colouring books and the cover featuring a tan coloured rabbit does not gel with my view of the White Rabbit. Thankfully, this colouring book does not have pre coloured line art so my bunny, when coloured, will be white 🙂
Unusually, for a colouring book, the Disney Alice in Wonderland Colouring Book has been formatted in a horizontal/landscape layout. Although it is perfect A4 size (by Australian standards) it is landscape rather than the usual portrait.
The cover is a matte laminate which thankfully resists grubby fingerprints but may be difficult to color unless using a medium that can penetrate the laminate like gel pens or alcohol markers perhaps.
The spine is white with the title text and a pop of red at the end as background for the publishers logo.
On the back cover you will find two double page scene thumbnails of illustrations from within the book against a sugar pink backdrop.
The Disney Alice in Wonderland Colouring measures approximately 21cm x 29.8 cm (8.4 in x 11.8 in)
On the inside front cover you will find a coloured image from within the book with copyright and publisher information printed in Japanese.
The back inside cover features coloured images of other products available for purchase.
The title page for the book features a delicious assortment of cakes and tea time things which you can color in. This is followed by a four page visual index of the contents of the colouring book.
Any of the pages above would serve as a great spot to test out your mediums and see how they react with the paper and your colouring technique.
Illustrations in the Alice in Wonderland Colouring Book are printed on both sides of the thick, smooth, off white paper. Text is shown on the right hand side of each illustration which has been framed with decorations to color in.
The pages are page numbered and can be cross referenced with the visual index included in the Ancillary Pages. It would appear, that the illustration is the stand alone art work and the text page there to incorporate the fairy tale into the art work. This assumption is based on the fact that, the text pages are not included as art work in the visual index.
All of the images have been orientated landscape style to suit the layout of the book.
The art work does run close to the spine which at the moment, is quite stiff. With further use of the colouring book, I am confident that it will loosen enough to make colouring in these areas easier.
There are no true double page scenes within the book.
Disney Alice in Wonderland Colouring Book Images and Illustrations
The Disney Alice in Wonderland Colouring Book features cartoon style art work that has been drawn in a sweet and quirky style.
We can follow Alice down the rabbit hole and through her adventures in Wonderland.
All our favourite characters have been represented in scenes in the colouring book which is always comforting.
Each page has been used to incorporate background elements and effects to ensure a complete look to each picture.
As the images are printed on both sides of the paper and the reverse has the text on it, you could use markers if you were happy that the reverse side would be damaged.
The line art has the appearance of hand drawn. Fine, black lines have been used to outline the art work which is quite easy to see.
Although the art work is cartoony style and comprises simple detail there are many images with a lot of small details which may be challenging for colonists with health ailments or minor visual impairment.

As we often find in our Japanese colouring books there is a treat at the back of the book.
Printed on single pages you will find 3 pictures to cut out, colour and frame and 6 notecard size illustrations.
The pages are not perforated, but there is a useful cutting guide printed on the page.
