From Shakespeare to Jane Austen, and now Charlotte Bronte and Lewis Carroll, Utah author Jennifer Adams has a wonderful knack for turning classic literature into children's books with just the right amount of charm and reverence.

With her newest books, Little Master Carroll Alice in Wonderland and Little Miss Bronte Jane Eyre, Adams has gone another step beyond. The first is a colors primer for children, the second a "series of board books for brilliant babies." Paired with illustrations and designs by Alison Oliver, both books make a vibrant addition to any nursery library, or parent out to raise their tots on good literature early in the reading game.

Unveiling both books on Friday, March 9, at King's English Bookshop, Adams has made this a mostly Alice-themed affair with Wonderland-style treats. For parents looking for a Friday evening event that will get the kids home in time for bed—with a new book, to boot—this is your event.
