Chapter 10 The Lobster Quadrille Summary
The Gryphon and the Mock Turtle perform the Lobster Quadrille while Turtle sings ‘”Will you walk a little faster?” said a whiting to a snail.’ Alice talks about her adventures in Wonderland. When she explains about how she confuses words, they ask her to recite “Tis the Voice of the Sluggard” which Alice gets all wrong. The Turtle then sings “Beautiful Soup.” After the dance, the three hear an announcement that the trial is about to begin.
