Synopsis

It's Lorina's birthday, and her younger sister Alice is upset because she has no gift to give her. Then Lorina hands Alice a blank book and suggests that the wildly imaginative Alice write her a story. Alice isn't sure how to start - until a wily White Rabbit steals her book and leads her down a rabbit hole into a Wonderland full of wildly eccentric characters including a grinning Cheshire Cat, a wise old Caterpillar, an overprotective Pigeon, a Mad Hatter, his equally mad sidekick the March Hare, and a very angry Queen of Hearts. Alice will need all her wits to find the White Rabbit and get her book back before it's "off with her head!" A magical take on a timeless children's classic - fun for the whole family!
