Teacher Notes on Alice in Wonderland
In Lewis Carroll's 1865 novel Alice in Wonderland, a young girl named Alice is sitting under a tree when she sees a white rabbit scurry by. She follows him down a rabbit hole, which leads to a strange new world. As she tries to find a way back home, Alice meets a colorful cast of characters, including a talking caterpillar, the disappearing Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, and the Queen of Hearts.
