Chapter 1 Down the Rabbit-Hole Summary
A bored Alice is sitting on the riverbank with her sister. Suddenly, a large White Rabbit comes by talking about being late. Curiously, Alice follows it down a rabbit hole. Alice winds up deep in the ground in a hallway lined with locked doors.
Alice finds a key to open a small door that leads to a beautiful garden, but she is too large to fit through the doorway. She makes it her goal to visit the garden. Soon Alice discovers a bottle on a table labeled “DRINK ME.” After drinking the contents, Alice shrinks. She is the right size to go through the door, but now the door is locked, and Alice is too small to reach the key that she has left on the table. Next, she finds a cake with “EAT ME” written on it.
