It was turning out to be a dull day for her when she noticed a rabbit moving nearby. The rabbit took out a watch from his waistcoat pocket and this was something that Alice had never seen a rabbit do. So Alice decided to follow the rabbit and jumped into the rabbit hole after him.

What did Alice found there??
Who was the rabbit and why was in hurry??

'Ten hours the first day,' said the Mock Turtle: 'nine the next, and so on.'

'What a curious plan!' exclaimed Alice.

'That's the reason they're called lessons,' the Gryphon remarked: 'because they lessen from day to day'.

Here one of the guinea-pigs cheered, and was immediately suppressed by the officers of the court. (As that is rather a hard word, I will just explain to you how it was done. They had a large canvas bag, which tied up at the mouth with strings: into this they slipped the guinea-pig, head first, and then sat upon it
