Swiatkowska’s pictures of Alice in a romantic confection of a dress recall the round-faced children in turn-of-the-century soap advertisements. The story’s greatest pleasure is found in the improbable outdoor creatures found inside Alice’s house, echoing her gestures and emotions like a visual Greek chorus.
