I just got Alice in Quantumland and Mr. Tompkins in Paperback 2 days ago. I've read the first chapter of each, and they are both wonderful. Alice in Quantumland makes me want to have kids... just so I can read it to them by the bedside. I don't often dream of kids but every now and then it seems like they would be really neat.

The analogies in Mr. Tomkins are much more precise overall; and I am far more impressed with the accuracy of it. I would highly recommend using it alongside a basic physics class in relativity or quantum mech to get an intuitive idea of what's going on. So few textbooks spend time with concrete exmamples. Alice in QL is more of a vague, fun adventure. But it has the spirit of quantum which I like. I think they are both excellent additions to my collection.
