OHHHHHH, I want to win. I love the illustration and the imagination of alice in wonderland. I have grown to appreciate it more as an adult.I am so looking forward to seeing it this weekend and in 3D .Life is good:)
Thank you for the chance to enter.


I've collected editions of Alice since I was small. I guess what I loved so much about her was that she was the heroine. Alice in Wonderland was a fairy tale that didn't need a prince.

Sandra Furlotte

Alice in Wonderland was a book that I only learned to appreciate in later life. It is a book that can be read and appreciated on so many levels - both as a child and as an adult. Just be prepared to re-think your whole perspective on life.

Hope I win.

Amanda White

Alice really does embody what we all go through growing into adulthood. A child may read the book or watch the movie and come away with a picturesque, if not dark, fairy tale that they will remember for years. As an adult however, you can relate to Alice and her size issues, her identity crisis, and her need to find her place in the world, even if she doesn't know where that place is.

Lori Barnes

What a awesome contest and we're anxiously awaiting the movie!!!!
The reason i have always loved Alice in Wonderland is the colorful characters and the whole story so magical and imaginative, just love it!! I can't wait to see how Johnny plays out his role with the Mad Hatter!!


What a great giveaway! I love Alice in Wonderland because it represents everything the imagination is capable of. It brings to life a magical world where anything can happen.

Missy Hatfield

I love Alice in Wonderland because every child dreams of discovering his or her own magical world to explore.

Terri van Gulik

I would love to win this prize. I have always enjoyed the Alice in Wonderland story. Recently I have been reading a series by Frank Beddor, which puts a different twist on the story. The Looking Glass Wars, and Seeing Redd. Waiting for Arch Enemy which is the 3rd in the Series. I am sure that Johnny Depp is putting another twist on the story. I love his quirkiness.

Melissa C

I loved Alice in Wonderland for the magic of the place that she wanders into and the characters that she meets along her journey. I most loved the Cheshire Cat!

The illustrations look stunning. I can't wait to see the movie this weekend. It looks very intersting!


Carroll's word play and political remarks are why I love Alice in Wonderland. I have several versions of the books - one in Romanian - and I try to reread the book every few years. Garcia's illustrations are stunning!


What a delightful feature. This book has always captivated me and will always provide me with a wonderful sense of promise and fun.


I love Alice in Wonderland because it was one of the first books I read that really opened up my imagination. I used to imagine what it looked like in my head now I am excited to see Tim Burton's interpretation in 3D IMAX!

Sarah Keery

This is a unique prize! Wow. I love the book and think the drawings suit it so much more than the sweetly sweetly drawings of the past.

Leslie Rossman

I love how each generation thinks they stumbled on the coolest new thing when they see the books, hear the story, or watch a new movie with Alice.


I have loved Alice in Wonderland ever since I can remember - for the fantastic characters, the wonderful adventures, the spunky heroine, and best of all the writing - the wit and wordplay has been something that I have never seen duplicated in another book.


I love Alice in wonderland because it makes the impossible seem possible. Also: I love that the heroes of the story are sort of evil & brilliant!


LOVE Camille's work, and the story of Alice is so complex and intriguing! I love the crazy cast of characters, it's such a unique story, I am very curious to see how Tim Burton interprets the story!


Alice in Wonderland brings back wonderful childhood memories for me. The creativity and incredible characters and places are absolutely unforgettable. I love this story.


My best friend (of 24 years!) and I have been obsessed with Alice for most of those years. Something about the absurdity of it all struck a cord with us, as we're both inclined towards the absurd. Thank you!

Kelly Manfredini

I have always loved AIW. I have also had a thing for the Mad Hatter. It was one of my favorite books as a child.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
