Chapter 2 The Pool of Tears Summary
After eating the cake, Alice grows and grows. When she becomes nine feet tall, Alice is so upset she begins to cry. Alice’s tears flood the hallway. Alice then picks up a fan. This causes her to once again shrink. When Alice realizes what is taking place, she throws down the fan just in time not to shrink away to nothing. Now that Alice is small, she finds herself in the puddle of tears she cried when large. As Alice is swimming out of the puddle, she comes across a Mouse who is also swimming. Alice tries to be friendly but offends the Mouse by talking about her cat.
