Book Report about Alice in the Wonderland
The title of the book that I read is “Alice in Wonderland”. The author of this book is Lewis Carroll. The main character is Alice, a curious, well-mannered, and reasonable young girl. Alice’s constant resource and strength is her courage. The story takes place both in our real world, and in the fictional world of Wonderland. Wonderland is a strange and crazy world where animals act like normal people and physical size and time are relative. Alice enters this world when she and a rabbit are dropped into a hole. The main idea is when Alice, found herself in a fantasy world when she fell down a rabbit hole while chasing the White Rabbit. The trouble begins there, where she found a key sitting on a glass table in the hallway she landed in. She also ended up drinking from a bottle that shrinks her and eating a cake that caused her to grow to the size of the ceiling. The three main points were Alice’s dream where the story happened, is when she enters the magical wonderland garden where she has to face difficulties with the people and animals that live there, and is when the Red Queen commands Alice’s head to be cut off.
The first main point was Alice’s dream. She was on a riverbank on a sunny day, looking over her sister’s shoulder, when she saw a White rabbit running around with a pocket watch. Alice was very curious, so she chased after him and both ended up going down a hole, which was an entrance to Wonderland, where Alice’s dream took place. The rabbit and Alice landed in a room with a table and the only key that could open the door was on the table, they couldn’t reach it. Alice found a bottle marked, “Drink me,” so she did. All of a sudden she became bigger, and yet couldn’t reach the key. Then, she found another bottle marked “Eat me,” so she did again. She became very little, but she got the key. Alice and the rabbit opened the door that led to a beautiful garden of animals that could talk like humans.
The second main point was when Alice and the rabbit were in the garden and the obstacles that they had to face. After some animals treated her badly, Alice went off into the forest, where she met a caterpillar that helped her get back to her normal size by eating a piece of the mushroom he was sitting on. Eating the mushroom, actually, made her grow back to her normal size. Alice walked until she found the Duchess. The Duchess was really rude, because she had to prepare for a game with the Queen. In the forest, Alice found the Cheshire cat, who explained to her that everyone in Wonderland was mad and crazy. The cat gave her directions to find the March Hare, the best friend of the Mad Hatter. Alice went to the Duchess’ game with the Queen and joined them. The Queen got really mad, because the Knave of Hearts was being accused of stealing the Queen’s tart. Many people gave their testimony, but none of what they told made any sense. The White rabbit called Alice to give her testimony. After many accusations the King couldn’t find anything that proved that the Knave of Hearts was guilty.
The third main point was when the Queen ordered Alice’s beheading. That happened because the White rabbit heard evidence, that proved the Knave was innocent, in the form of a letter written by the Knave. The King thought that the letter could prove the Knave guilty and Alice protested his interpretation. The Queen was furious because she thought that the Knave had really stolen her tarts, and she wanted to destroy Alice because she and the White rabbit helped the Knave, but Alice grew so much that she was able to destroy the Queen’s army of cards and everyone that was making that place, into a bad place where all the people were mad.
The story ended when Alice woke up on her sister’s lap, back at the riverbank. Alice told her big dream to her sister and they both went for tea. In “Alice in Wonderland” you learn how to manage your personal growth, you learn how to challenge your creativity, and you also learn that you have to follow the advice you give yourself. All these things were learned from Alice’s dream, when she entered the magical garden, and when the Queen ordered Alice to be beheaded. The concluding statement was when we, readers, find out that everything was a dream and Alice’s sister hears the story she pictures what the characters look like, causing the story to be recreated in Alice’s sisters head. Trying to figure what everything was and how things happened, which give us the same felling because as readers we need to picture the setting from books ourselves.
