Synopsis

What's Alice up to with that look in her eye? What's Alice doing with her father's necktie? What is Alice up to as she crawls and runs and climbs through the house, collecting treasures and treats? Her curious dog looks on and wonders, but all he knows is that Alice is up to something fun! The unusual perspectives and inventive use of color and design in What's Alice Up To? offer a mystery that's as engaging as it is puzzling and create a picture book that's a real visual treat. Harley Jessup worked as visual effects art director on such films as Innerspace, for which he received an Academy Award and Hook, for which he received an Academy Award nomination. His work as production designer on James and the Giant Peach was highly acclaimed.
