A little girl named Alice is sitting in the sunshine watching her sister read a book when all of a sudden she sees a little rabbit and chases it down a rabbit hole and finds herself in Wonderland. She learns from many different animals and creatures how to treat people and to think before she acts. She finally bumps into a Cheshire cat that tells her to go a certain way and then she finds herself again in a weird place with cards as guards and a Queen. The queen is in charge of the entire garden and her palace. She says left and right to cards and any other animal or thing, off with their head. But when she says it to Alice she gets a fair trial where she finds these mushrooms in her pocket that makes her big and the guards attack her when she finally wakes up from a dream.
