Winter serial – Alice in Wonderland, part one: Down the Rabbit Hole

Suddenly a white rabbit, with pink eyes, ran close by her.

‘Curioser and curioser!’ cried Alice.

There was a mouse splashing about a little way off.

She grew and grew until she had to lie down on the floor.

The rabbit had fallen into a cucumber frame.

‘There goes Bill!’ shouted a general chorus of voices.

An enormous puppy was looking down at her.

There was a large mushroom, and on the top of it sat a large caterpillar.

Part two coming soon….
