She follows it down a rabbit hole when suddenly she falls a long way to a curious with many locked doors of all sizes. She finds a small key to a door too small for her to fit through, but through it she sees an attractive garden. She then discovers a bottle on a table "DRINK ME", the contents of which cause her to shrink too small to reach the key which she has left on the table. A cake with "EAT ME" on it causes her to to such a tremendous size her head hits the ceiling.

After shrinking down again due to a she had picked up, Alice swims through her own tears and meets a Mouse, who is swimming as well.

Chapter 3:
The Race and a Long Tale: The sea of tears becomes crowded with other animals and birds that have been swept away by the waters. Alice and the other animals convene on the bank and the question among them is how to get again. The mouse gives them a very dry lecture on William the Conqueror. A Dodo decides that the best thing to dry them off would be a Caucus-Race, which consists of everyone running in a circle with no clear winner. Alice eventually all the animals away, unwittingly, by talking about her (moderately ferocious) cat.

The Rabbit orders his gardener, Bill the Lizard, to climb on the roof and go down the chimney. Outside, Alice hears the voices of animals that have gathered to at her giant arm. The crowd hurls pebbles at her, which turn into little cakes. Alice eats them, and they reduce her again in size.

Chapter 5:
from a Caterpillar: Alice comes upon a mushroom and sitting on it is a blue Caterpillar smoking a hookah. The questions Alice and she admits to her current identity crisis, compounded by her inability to remember a poem. Before away, the caterpillar tells Alice that one side of the mushroom will make her taller and the other side will make her shorter. She off two pieces from the mushroom. One side makes her shrink smaller than ever, while another causes her neck to grow high into the trees, where a mistakes her for a serpent. With some effort, Alice brings herself back to her usual height. She upon a small estate and uses the mushroom to reach a more appropriate height.
