“One graphic that stopped me in my tracks was a Victorian view of Coney Island’s Astroland Park in its heyday with the sound of the Cyclone Roller Coaster pervading the soundtrack,” writes David Winograd in his review of “Alice in New York” for the iPad. It stopped us too: The Astroland Rocket has rejoined Papa Burger atop Paul’s roof. In the interactive drawing by Petra Kneile, one of 27 in the new e-book, the cars of the spinning Wonder Wheel go topsy turvy as the Red Queen and Alice fly through the air.

You can take a look at the animations in this video by the book’s co-creator Chris Stevens of Atomic Antelope. “Alice in New York” celebrates the 140th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking Glass.”
