Alice in Wonderland
Alice in Wonderland is a fantastical tale written by Lewis Caroll. This story begins when a young girl named Alice sees a white rabbit in a waistcoat run by her, pull out his pocket watch and declare that he is terribly late before jumping into his rabbit hole. Alice, curious, runs after him down his rabbit hole and into a whimsical, chaotic, and at times scary world. She meets a Cheshire Cat, a Caterpillar, and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. She has a wild tea party with the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and the Dormouse and plays croquet with the Queen of Hearts. Her adventure gets more and more chaotic and magical until she wakes up in a start, sitting with her sister alongside the river, right where she was when she saw the rabbit. It was all a dream. Perhaps. This book has been adapted for the stage as a play, a musical, and a children’s show by various playwrights including Henry Savile Clarke, Anne Coulter Martens, and Jonathan Yukich, to name a few.
