Awards and Honours:
- Winner of the 2009 Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Award
- Listed in Resource Links’ “The Year’s Best – 2009″
“Elegant book design and sophisticated artwork…. remarkable and innovative….” – School Library Journal
“…Lipchenko leaves his mark on Wonderland with a unique but satisfying vision. I forgot all about blonde girls in blue dresses while paging through this one, and for that alone, the illustrator has my undying gratitude. Old-school in the best sense of the word, Tundra clearly knows a master when they see one…” – Bookslut
“…Lipchenko’s illustrations have lots to go on. They’re sinuous, crowded and oppressive in just the way Alice feels Wonderland…. Here’s the happy result of research, contemplation and evident enjoyment….” – The Toronto Star
“Curiouser and curiouser, yes? And surreal and gloriously bizarre in about seven different directions.” – Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast
