Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is an novel written by Lewis Carroll and first published in 1865.
Its argument is about a girl named Alice, who falls asleep in a meadow and then dreams of a fantastical world called Wonderland.
On a warm, sunny summer day, Alice is sitting with her sister in a tree and is really bored. Suddenly, before her eyes a white rabbit runs past, wearing a pocket watch on his vest and says that he is going to be late. Alice stands up, totally surprised to see a rabbit wearing a vest, with a watch to boot. She runs after the animal until it disappears into a hole in the ground.
Alice goes down the rabbit hole and arrives in this dreamlike world. There, she encounters characters and events out of all logic and nonsense.
The inhabitants of Wonderland themselves are sometimes hostile to her and criticize her. At times, the magical world becomes for Alice almost a nightmare.
The girl, who strives to achieve balance, often manages to resolve conflicts with the beings that inhabit the magical world in a resolute and intelligent way.
The novel has been adapted numerous times into different mediums, including movies, plays, and cartoons. It has been widely translated, with over 150 different versions published in more than 60 languages.
