Narrator: After Alice frightened everyone
by growing as big as a house,
she ate some little cakes
and shrank again. She doesn't like being
so tiny, so she's looking for something
to make her grow to the right size.
But this is Wonderland and
what she finds, sitting on top of
a mushroom, is very curious indeed...
Alice: Am I as small as a mushroom,
or is the mushroom as tall as me? Ohh!!
Narrator: Sitting on top of the mushroom
was a blue caterpillar
smoking a hookah pipe.
Caterpillar: Who are you?
Alice: I... I'm not sure. I know who
I was when I woke up this morning.
But I've changed
so many times since then!
Caterpillar: What do you mean by that?
Explain yourself!
Alice: I can't explain myself because I'm
not myself. It's very confusing... I think
you should tell me who YOU are first.
Caterpillar: Why?
Alice: Ummm...
Narrator: Alice couldn't think of
any good reason.
She decided to leave.
Caterpillar: Come back! I have
something important to say!
Alice: Yes?
Caterpillar: Don't be unhappy.
Alice: Is that all?
Caterpillar: No. So you think
you've changed, do you?
Alice: I have, sir. I don't stay
the same size for more than ten minutes!
Caterpillar: What size do you want to be?
Alice: Oh, I don't mind. A little bit bigger
is all I would like. Seven centimetres is
such a terrible height!
Caterpillar: It is a very good height!
I myself am exactly
seven centimetres in height!
Narrator: And with that, the caterpillar
crawled off the mushroom and away.
Caterpillar: One side of the mushroom
will make you grow taller. The other side
will make you grow shorter.
Seven centimetres indeed!
Alice Hmmm... let me pull this side...
and now this side...
But which side is which?
Narrator: There was only one way
to find out the answer to that question.
Alice took a bite of
one piece of the mushroom ...
Narrator: ...and shrank so quickly that she
hit her chin on her foot.
Alice: Ouch!
Narrator: Quickly, she ate some of the
other piece of mushroom and ...
Alice: Where have my shoulders gone?
And my hands ... where are you, hands?
Narrator: Alice grew and grew
until her neck was as long as a snake.
Up and up she grew,
through the branches and leaves,
until her head was higher than the trees.
Alice found she could move her neck
just like a snake, bending this
way and that. She was about to
use her long neck to push her head down
into the trees to look for
her shoulders and hands,
when suddenly a furious bird flew at her.
Bird: Snake! Snake! You want my eggs!
I know!
Alice: Ouch! I'm not a snake!.
I'm a little girl!
Bird: Little girl or snake, it doesn't matter
to me, you want my eggs just the same!
Alice: I don't want your eggs, really I don't!
Bird: Then be off with you! Go away!
Narrator: The bird settled angrily into its
nest. Alice ate a little of one side of the
mushroom, then a little of the other, then
a little of the first again until she was
a good size. She decided to find
her way back the door to
the beautiful garden that she saw when
she first arrived in Wonderland.
As she walked through the forest
she found a little clearing,
with a small house in it, not much more
than a meter or so high.
Alice: I wonder who lives here? This
house is so small ... anyone
who lives here will
surely be afraid of me!
Narrator: Alice ate a little more
of the mushroom and quickly brought
herself down to the right size for
this little house.
Next time, Alice meets
a walking fish, talks to a smiling cat
and has to look after a baby. Goodbye.
