Alice in Wonderland is a great book, and was made into a wonderful movie by Walt Disney. The author of the book wrote an imagined story for a real girl named Alice more than 100 years ago.
In her adventures, Alice meets a Dodo bird who leads a strange event called a Caucas Race. She follows a talking rabbit to a tea party with a Mad Hatter and a Dormouse. She meets a magical caterpillar, TweedleDum and TweedleDee, Humpty Dumpty, and many other creatures.
Alice goes through many little doors from one part of Wonderland to another. She often changes her size: sometimes she's very big, sometimes very small. In the book are many wonderful pictures.
The movie makes them all come to life, including a lot of songs. At the end, Alice sees that the Queen of Hearts and all her men are really just a deck of cards. She wakes up and realizes that Wonderland was really a dream.Alice in Wonderland
