From Library Journal:

This careful study of Tenniel's career, most of it spent as a Punch cartoonist, focuses on the artist's work without exaggerating his achievement. The central and most interesting chapter covers his illustrations for Alice , discussing sources, technique, and effectiveness (as well as difficulties with Dodgson and the printers). There are a few biographical details, but Tenniel's intense reserve combined with the almost total lack of incident in his lengthy span prevent his really coming to life here. Engen refrains from psychological or psychosexual speculation (even on Tenniel's sole, two-year marriage to a dying consumptive). Nor is there much historical-social-cultural period setting. The scholarly nature of Engen's work limits its appeal to specialists, who will appreciate the bibliography and extensive checklists of Tenniel's book and periodical illustrations.
