Down the Rabbit-Hole

 Down she came upon a heap of dry leaves

The poor little thing sat down and cried

The Pool of Tears

Now I’m opening out like the largest telescope that ever was!

The Rabbit started violently

The Mouse gave a sudden leap out of the water

A Caucus-Race and a Long Tale


The Caucus-Race

 The Dodo solemnly presented the thimble

  Mine is a long and a sad tale, ’ said the Mouse

On various pretexts they all moved off

The Rabbit Sends in a Little Bill

Why, Mary Ann, what are you doing here?

 What’s that in the window?

  Catch him, you by the hedge

  The poor little Lizard Bill was in the middle being held up

 The Puppy jumped into the air

Advice from a Caterpillar 

  The Caterpillar and Alice looked at each other

 Old Father William standing on his head

Old Father William balancing an Eel on the end of his nose

 Old Father William turning a back somersault in at the door

‘ Serpent ! ’ screamed the Pigeon

Pig and Pepper

Then they both bowed low and their curls got entangled

Singing a sort of lullaby

So she set the little creature down

  This time it vanished quite slowly

A Mad Tea-Party

  He dipped it into his cup of tea and looked at it again

They lived at the bottom of a well

The Queen’s Croquet Ground


‘ Don’t go splashing paint over me ’

 ‘ Off with her head ! ’

  It would twist itself round and look up in her face

‘ Don’t look at me like that ’

  The Hedge-hog was engaged in a fight with another Hedge-hog

The Mock-Turtle’s Story

‘ Tut, tut, child ! ’ said the Duchess

The Lobster Quadrille

They began solemnly dancing round and round Alice

  ‘ Will you walk a little faster, ’ said a Whiting to a Snail

Alice began telling them her adventures

  ‘ Come on ! ’ cried the Gryphon

Who Stole the Tarts?

 The King and Queen of Hearts were seated on their throne

  ‘ I'm a poor man your Majesty, ’ the Hatter began, in a trembling voice

Into this they slipped the Guinea-pig

Alice’s Evidence

Upsetting all of the Jurymen onto the heads of the crowd below

At this the whole pack rose up into the air
