Alice's attention thus grabbed, foolishly follows the Trickster rabbit down the hole which leads to being lost and bewildered. However, discoveries she makes about herself along the way are part of her growing up. The Trickster, White Rabbit in this case, is a facilitator for life transitions. Coming and going as it pleases, like a magician, the Cheshire Cat just leaves a
Unlike the spur-of-the-moment creation of the first novel, Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass was published six years after the first. This latter story was more logical than the first and clearly differed from it in direction and substance. The introduction of Alice and how she finds herself in the “fantasy” world is very different in each of the stories. In Alice in wonderland, Alice follows the rabbit out of pure curiosity- of course being so curious because the white rabbit rushes passed her. She ends up falling down the rabbit hole involuntarily, which ends up taking her (and the reader) to a world of magic and make believe.
In this first paragraph, then, we learn about the protagonist, Alice, her age, her temperament, and the setting and the mood of the story. In a dream, Alice has escaped from the dull and boring and prosaic world of adulthood — a world of dull prose and pictureless experiences; she has entered what seems to be a confusing, but perpetual springtime of physical, if often terrifying, immediacy. The White Rabbit wears a waistcoat, walks upright, speaks English, and is worrying over the time on his pocket watch. Alice follows him simply because she is very curious about him. And very soon she finds herself falling down a deep tunnel.
Alice in Wonderland is a film about a young girl Alice, who is being forced to get engaged to a wealthy man who she dislikes, but before she can make a decision Alice finds herself chasing a rabbit in a waistcoat and plunging into the world of Wonderland. There she makes new friends and fulfills her | destiny of slaying the Jabberwocky.

They both set off alone on journeys at the hand of the draw in these coming-of-age novels. Both Alice and Siddhartha have to make several sacrifices in order to reach their goals, often finding themselves dealing with both physical and emotional dilemmas. Alice decides to eat the mysteriously tempting cake reading “eat me”, but does not know if it will harm or help her; this is but one example of how she sacrifices her safety with high hopes and optimism of it helping her along in her journey home. ‘Well I’ll eat it,’ said Alice, ‘and if it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key; and if it makes me grow smaller, I can creep under the door; so either way I’ll get into the garden, and I don’t care which happens” (Carroll 6). Siddhartha sacrifices leaving his old friend to which he has been so deeply connected for so many years in order to fulfill his dream of obtaining enlightenment.
In the movie the Wizard of Oz Scarecrow is meant to be portrayed simple minded, When Dorothy first meets Scarecrow, in the movie, he can not seem to make up his mind on which path Dorothy should continue on to. In the film when it comes down to choices Scarecrow doubts his plans, thinking they will not be good enough, but the truth is all along he was smart. For example there is a scene where the Lion, Tin man and Scarecrow need to get into the castle to save Dorothy from the Wicked Witch of the West. Scarecrow is the one that offers his plan and it worked just the way they had hoped too. What the Scarecrow initially resembles are the farmers during the Populist movement era.
But if I only should focus on the text alone it does contain some of the criteria’s that we talked about as being good children’s literature. There is a small universe and a dialogue, its short and parents actually might like it for their kids to hear, because the moral of the fable is quite good for children to learn because it teaches them to have faith and trust in themselves or else they will be punished. The reason why I think it is not suitable for children’s literature is because in the story it is the “good” one that dies, and the wolves actually don’t have a fair reason for killing the rabbits compared to the story about little red cap where the wolf is the one who dies because he has done something
In this poem Alan Brownjohn was very concerned about the environment and so he uses the image of a rabbit to tell us this. I am going to show how he does it. In the first stanza the first verse “we are going to see the rabbit” is repeated to bring out excitement. Then there is a question which adds excitement too, it is telling us that children and even adult are born with a world with only one rabbit – very rare and all of them are curious to see it. The poet says the definite article ‘the’ to emphasise that it is the only rabbit which is meant to tell us that if there is such a prolific animal is extinct, there is only one left, then wildlife is in peril, what has happened to all the others?
This indicates that Alice is a polite and understanding girl. We also discover she loves to dance. Before Charlie is about to compete in the Ballarat Mile, Alice gives him a letter only to be opened just before Charlie runs in the Ballarat Mile. It stated “Run like the wind, love Alice” This suggests Alice does feel for Charlie, and at the end of the novel it is
The story emphasizes how low-self esteem can affect person's life and it is a story of Alice childhood devastation. I love the way the Author started by telling the audience of her incredible childhood before the accident. I will confidently say that walkers essay is a masterpiece, because she made the reader experience this magnificent essay in three stages, firstly she charmed the reader in the beginning by her sassiness and the careful observations on outward appearance as a young girl. Secondly, she
