Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll in 1865.

Alice in Wonderland was adapted for the stage by V.A Pearns and tells the story of a little girl named Alice who chases a white rabbit who is carrying a pocket watch, and worrying that he is late, oh so very late. Alice falls down a rabbit hole following the white rabbit into a fantasy world, Wonderland, populated by peculiar people and creatures.

Alice meets a Dodo, who should be extinct and takes part in curious Caucus Race. Alice catches up with the white rabbit, who mistakes Alice for a servant and sends her to his home to find his fan and his gloves. The White Rabbit then gets very worried when the Duchcess gets mad and calls for the White Rabbit's head to be cut off.

Later Alice visits a house where occupied by a Duchess who is using too much pepper and has a surprise when she is left holding a baby.

Alice gets very cross at the tea party of the Mad Hatter and Mad March Hare and learns why they both have tea all day. When Alice storms out of the tea party, she visits a garden and joins in the Queen of Hearts Croquet match.

After the match, Alice talks to a Gryphon and Mock Turtle before attending a trial where the Kanve Of Hearts is being tried for stealing the tarts made by the Queen Of Hearts. Alice herself is called to give evidence.

Alice finally is awakes and remarks about the curious dream she had to her big sister.

The story of Alice in Wonderland considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre, and its narrative course and structure have been enormously influential, especially in the fantasy genre.
