Alice’s adventures in Wonderland – Lewis Carroll

Alice’s adventures begin when she follows White Rabbit down a rabbit-hole and falls down, down, down.

Alice is an ordinary little girl who lives an ordinary sort of life, until the day she finds herself in the most wonderful world of mad tea parties and remarkable characters like the Mad Hatter, the Duchess, the Cheshire Cat and the Mock Turtle.

As everything grows ‘curiouser and curiouser’, Alice is delighted to find that nothing in Wonderland is the least bit ordinary.
