un incredibile viaggio nelle meraviglie

 Alice in Wonderland  is an 1865 novel written by Lewis Carroll.
Alice is bored  (stufa): she is sitting on the riverbank with her sister, when she sees a talking, clothed (vestito) White Rabbit with a pocket watch (orologio da taschino) run past. She follows it down a rabbit hole (tana) . Thrugh a hole of a door  she sees a beautiful garden, but the door is too small. She finds a bottle:  “DRINK ME”. She drinks and becomes too small to take a key to enter the door. She eats a  cake with “EAT ME”  and becomes too big. Alice cries and her tears form a sea that becomes crowded with other animals and birds swimming. from that moment on evey figure she meets is a surprise: They a mouse lectures on William the Conqueror, a Dodo s performs a Caucus-Race ,the White Rabbit appears again, the blue Caterpillar  on a mushroom  smokes  a hookah, and  the Cheshire Cat appears in a tree, and directs her to the March Hare’s house. He disappears but his grin remains floating in the air. Alice states that she has often seen a cat without a grin, but never a grin without a cat.
Alice becomes a guest at a “mad” tea party together with the March Hare, the Mad Hatter, and a sleeping Dormouse who remains asleep.  Alice leaves claiming that it was the stupidest tea party that she had ever been to and enters the garden where three living playing cards are painting the white roses red because the Queen of Hearts hates white roses. Alice then meets the King and the Queen. The Queen is always saying her trademark phrase “Off with his head!” (tagliatele la testa) Alice plays a game of croquet with the Queen and the rest of her subjects but the game quickly descends into chaos. Live flamingos are used as mallets and hedgehogs (ricci) as balls and Alice once again meets the Cheshire Cat. Suddenly a trial  starts:  the Knave of Hearts accused of stealing the Queen’s tarts. Alice is called up as a witness. She accidentally knocks over (butta giù) the jury box with the animals inside them and the King and Queen order Alice to go away, but Alice refuses to leave and argues over t (discute) he ridiculous proceedings. The Queen says “Off with her head!”, but Alice is not afraid and calls them out as just a pack of cards: the cards start flying over her. Alice’s sister wakes her up for tea. Alice brushes away (tira via) some leaves (not a shower of playing cards) and leaves her sister on the bank to imagine all the curious happenings for herself.
