One of the first books we published at Simply Read Books was Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, illustrated by Iassen Ghiuselev. We have since reprinted it numerous times as well as even done a new edition. We are always on the look out of other beautiful illustrated versions of Alice, and this one certainly caught our eye: from Penguin UK and Yayoi Kusama, Japan’s most celebrated contemporary artist, comes a striking version with colorful dots and twisted typography.

How interesting! Check out some of these French children's picture books--so much darker than what you can find in North America. More here! Thanks to Jenny Colgan for the info.
