I tried reading the original version of Alice in Wonderland to my oldest about a year ago as our before-bed-chapter-book. It did not click; we abandoned it. This version, on the other hand, has been entirely successful. It contains the essence of the story, the visuals are wonderful, and it never feels too long. Both boys are thrilled when I pull it out.
