Alice’s adventures start when she follows a White Rabbit and goes straight into a rabbit-hole. She finds herself in a long, low hole with doors all around it. When she sees a bottle that is not marked poison, she dares to taste it, and soon she shrinks but she feels glad she could fit into the little door that leads into the lovely garden-if only she will not forget the little golden key.
After a while, Alice meets a mouse, some birds and animals and decides to have a caucus-race to dry them after swimming at a pool of tears. Alice sees the White Rabbit again and the White Rabbit thinks she is his housemaid and so she goes to the Rabbit house to do what the White Rabbit says.
Alice also meets a few strange characters. She meets the blue caterpillar who sits at the top of a mushroom while quietly smoking a long hookah. She goes to a little house where the cook, the grinning Cheshire Cat, the nasty Duchess and her baby live. Then she goes to a large house where the Dormouse, the Hatter and the March Hare are having tea. And when Alice meets the King and Queen of Hearts, she thinks she does not need to be afraid of them.
Even if Alice is lost in an odd land, that she couldn’t help but think some experiences she encounters are just nonsense, she finds herself growing and curious after a variety of absurd physical changes. Soon, she realizes that her experiences in Wonderland are far more threatening than they appear to be.
