Plot Essay

1948 words - 8 pages

Alice is a 7 year old girl who is very imaginative. One day, her and her sister were sitting near a bank, reading books when all of a sudden, Alice spots a white rabbit running past her and jumping into a rabbit hole. Alice being an innocent and inquisitive little girl, she too goes down the rabbit hole. She falls into a big hallway with many locked doors. She sees one, and realizes that she's too small, and that the door is locked, and the key is out of reach. After seeing her predicament, she spots a bottle labeled DRINK ME. She ponders about the possible out comes, and she decides to drink it, hoping to grow tall to reach the key, or shrink small enough to be able to get through the hole. Finding out that she had gotten small or not small enough, she then finds a cake that she also thinks about the possible out comes, and convinces herself to eat it, and finds out that she had grown.
A while after she finally gets to be proportionate again, she gets upset, and begins to cry, and finds out that the more she cries the smaller she gets. After finally getting through the door, she later sees the White Rabbit, who mistakes her as his housemaid Mary Ann, tells her to retrieve his gloves and fan. Alice then runs into his house in search for his gloves and his fan that he had lost in the corridor at the end of the rabbit hole. He orders Alice to check his home for his things, and while Alice goes and looks though his house, and then finds another bottle like the one before, and then before she knew it she grew bigger again, and she is stuck in the house. Pat, the White Rabbit's servant, is ordered to burn the house down. Scared Alice decides to threaten Pat, and the crowd out the window by saying Dinah will go after all of them. The crowd also scared, begins to throw pebbles into the house that turns into cakes that make Alice grow smaller. She then becomes small again and escapes out of the mess at White Rabbits house. She then runs into the caterpillar that tells her how to get to her wanted height again. She then takes what she needs to get back to normal, and then takes some incase she needs it in the future. She then ventures off, and finds a house that belongs to the Duchess, a baby, a frog and a fish footman. This is also where the Cheshire Cat was. The Duchess kept making a pepper soup while yelling at her crying baby. After seeing such injustice for the baby, Alice steals the baby, and then goes off further and further away from the house to figure out that the baby had turned into a pig. She later encounters the Cheshire Cat yet again, and he explains to her that she should go and visit the Mad Hatter and the March Hare. The Mad Hatter, the March Hare and the Dormouse all talk of nonsensical things.
Alice then goes off, and finds the door to the Queen of Hearts Garden, where the table from before is there again. She is finally able to get the key from the table, and get though the door. She walks into the garden to...
