Opinions on literature guides for Alice in Wonderland and/or Wizard of Oz? VP Guides?

I read DS Peter Pan years ago and he's listened to the audiobook constantly for years so I'm torn on whether it makes sense to add the guide that VP has. Since he knows the book so well he could probably do the questions easily. It's hard to tell since Rainbow only has a one page sample, do the questions get any more substantive or is it more remembering what happened?
I've never read Wind in the Willows and the guide is for middle school, unless I missed a younger one for this? Would it be worthwhile if there is an age appropriate one?

Litwits has them. They're "experience kits" meant for slightly older children (8-12), but they have links that go along with background info and look to be a lot of fun.
HomeschoolShare has a lapbook for Oz, also.
We're using ELTL this year but I don't plan on supplementing much. We're using level 3, which includes Beautiful Stories From Shakespeare. I do have a Shakespeare activity guide and we'll be getting to him in history, so I'll tie it all together. The rest: Dolittle, Oz, and one other, we'll just read for fun and do the light ELTL lessons.

The one I used for Wizard of Oz I found on currclick. It is by World Study Guide. This one is a lapbook but a very good one. It has some many great elements to enhance the story. I got the MP Blue Fairy study guide but really it is lack luster. I am not going to return it but it is my least favorite one out of the ones I have found for ELTL.
ELTL is only done 3 days a week so we are just going to work the study guides in on the off days. Very breezy and low key. I don't plan to do it all, just for discussion, a few projects, a little more writing practice and so forth.
