Alice would rather play and daydream than do her homework, so hides in her father's study, which is crammed with books of all types and sizes.
But one day, a curious looking rabbit, who just happens to be an eater of novels, appears, Not wanting the library to be turned into a rodent smorgasbord, Alice chases the rabbit and follows him into an amazing wonderland, where she encourters the Queen of Hearts, Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and of course the Chesire Cat.
Tout a Trac's adaptation is faithful to the madness and humor of Lewis Carroll's original with one important twist: the story is no longer set in a garden, but in a library full of pop-up books. Each new page opens another door and leads to the next adventure.
Alice in Wonderland is a gateway to the imagination. Will you follow the white rabbit?
