An enormous Puppy was looking A John Tenniel's illustration There was a large Mushroom growing near her
Alice approached the Little House The door led into a large Kitchen Alice caught the Bab
Alice saw the Chesire Cat There was a Table under a Tree She saw them trying to put the Dormouse
A large Rose Tree stood over the entrance Alice face to face with the Queen of Hearts "Off with their Heads "
Only the Cat's Head appeared Very soon they came upon the Gryphon Another John Tenniel's illustration
