Chapter 5 Advice from a Caterpillar Summary
After rushing away from the White Rabbit’s house, Alice comes upon a Caterpillar. He tells her about the mushroom’s properties, one side will help her grow larger, and the other will help her shrink. Armed with the mushroom, Alice walks through the woods. As she nibbles on the mushroom, Alice’s neck grows until her head is high above the trees. A Pigeon flies by and thinks Alice is a serpent. With a lot of struggling to reach her hand, Alice is able to eat the correct mushroom and shrink to her normal size.
