Just back from a few days in Disneyland Paris. It's for an article, so it's work - but definitely the kind of work I like as I'm a huge Disney fan.

Alice's "house"

Paris has one of the best Alice in Wonderland attractions of any of the Disney parks - not only the revolving teacups, but also a labyrinth, where you walk to, fro and round, trying to find your way to the castle in the middle. All right, I know there isn't a castle in "Alice" but this is rather beautiful with its gorgeously Kremlin-style tiled roof and golden weathervane.

There were also Alice and Mad Hatter characters on the floats, signing autographs and posing for photographs in the park - it was quite hard to get this one, amidst the jostling crowd.

Alice and the Mad Hatter

What about Tim Burton's version? The only signs of those, were posters. No doubt that will change, unless Disney have decided to stick with their cartoon Alice as the definitive one.

More reviews. Apparently the book was mentioned in the Universal Register in Tuesday's copy of the Times of London. I've been unable to find this online, but my UK publisher Haus promises to send me a clipping. Hurrah! I've always wanted to be featured on the Times Universal Register!

A nice review from Salt Lake City And many thanks to Bill Burns for letting me know more about Newsday.

I was thrilled to see this elegant Japanese blog with a long, thoughtful review.
