Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland

Once upon a time, a little girl named Alice was sitting in her garden with her sister, Dinah, on a lovely summer day. Alice was beginning to get bored listening to her sister read a dull book aloud. Suddenly, Alice spotted a white rabbit with pink eyes running by. The rabbit was wearing a waistcoat and pocket watch! Alice had never seen a rabbit wearing clothes before. She heard the rabbit shout, “I’m late! I’m so very late!” Astonished, she got up from amongst the flowers and ran after him.

Once upon a time, a little girl named Alice was sitting in her garden with her sister, Dinah, on a lovely summer day. Alice was beginning to get bored listening to her sister read a dull book aloud. Suddenly, Alice spotted a white rabbit with pink eyes running by. The rabbit was wearing a waistcoat and pocket watch! Alice had never seen a rabbit wearing clothes before. She heard the rabbit shout, “I’m late! I’m so very late!” Astonished, she got up from amongst the flowers and ran after him.

There was a little table next to her. It only had three legs, and on it was a tiny gold key and a pink glass bottle. The label around the bottle’s neck said, “Drink Me”. Alice picked up the little key and tried it in all the doors. It fitted in the smallest one, which was no bigger than a sheet of paper. “I’m too big to fit through such a little door,” Alice mused, “but maybe this drink will help me.” She drank every last drop of the pink liquid, and began to shrink!

She shrunk down and down until she was no bigger than the dolls she played with at home. A perfect size to fit through the door! On the other side, she found a beautiful garden filled with hundreds of different flowers. The flowers were taller than Alice, and they all had pretty faces surrounded by lush petals. “A girl!” they shrieked in high-pitched voices, “A dirty little girlِ” “I’m not dirty,” said Alice crossly, “I fell down a rabbit hole!” She decided she didn’t like these flowers much, so she walked onwards through the garden.

Eventually, she came across a giant grey mushroom. On top of it, there sat a fat, green caterpillar. He was blowing bubbles from a large wand and wore a fancy blue jacket. “Hello sir,” she called up, “I’m trying to get back to my regular size. Can you help?” The caterpillar lazily blew more bubbles. “One side makes you big, the other side makes you small,” he purred to Alice. “One side of what?” she called back. “The mushroom, of course,” he replied.

Alice walked on until she came to a huge table in the middle of the trees. It was filled with pots of jam and scones, teapots, teacups, and cakes. “A tea party!” thought Alice. A man with a wonky top hat and wild hair popped up from one of the seats. “If you want to eat, you have to answer a riddle,” he screeched at Alice. “Oh I love riddles!” said Alice. “Why is a raven like a writing desk?” asked a giant hare with long brown ears, who was seated at the other end of the table.

Alice guessed many different answers, but none made sense. “Have you given up?” asked the Mad Hatter. “Yes, what’s the answer?” replied Alice. “We haven’t the faintest idea!” screamed the Hatter, and he and the March Hare fell about laughing! Alice was very cross. What a silly riddle if it didn’t have an answer! She stomped away from the table. Soon, she came across a palace with a huge rose garden filled with red roses.

The Queen of Hearts was in the rose garden playing croquet. She was hitting the ball angrily with an upside-down flamingo. She seemed very annoyed as she smacked the ball across the garden. She screamed when she spotted Alice and pointed a fat finger towards her. “Someone’s been stealing my tarts!” she bellowed. “This girl! She’s been stealing them!” Alice was quite astonished. She was certain she hadn’t eaten any tarts. Still, the Queen’s guards seized her.

They dragged Alice to a courtroom that was filled with the all the different people Alice had met that day. In the jury box sat the March Hare, the Mad Hatter, the caterpillar, and the Cheshire Cat. The judge entered in his wig and gown. It was the white rabbit! “Little girl,” he squeaked, “You are accused of stealing the Queen’s jam tarts! How do you plead?” The court erupted into noise and the Queen shrieked, “Off with her head!” The rabbit banged his little hammer.
