'Alice' is told in the form of a dream by Alice, the lead character. Throughout, she never progresses to any rational understanding, mental, or psychological growth. Her dream sometimes has the aspects of a nightmare. 'Wonderland' is a world where fairy or elf-like creatures meet and talk with one-another, and all the animals (except the pig, who had been transformed from a baby) have the nagging, whining, and complaining attitudes of adults. Carroll satirizes the pseudo-intellectuality of Victorian adults, and none of this nonsense ever makes sense to Alice.
The story begins with Alice and her sister sitting on the bank of a river reading a book without pictures or dialogue. Becoming bored, Alice follows a white rabbit, walking upright, wearing a waistcoat, speaking English, and worried over the time on his pocket watch. Alice falls down a deep rabbit hole. There she is repeatedly confronted by alternatively growing and shrinking in size. Alice triumphs in the end by outgrowing nonsense - scattering the absurd playing cards, waking from her dream, and realizing that reason can oppose nonsense and win. The non-stop movie of horrors then ends.
