Edwin and Morcar, the earls of Mercia and Northumbria-". Edwin and Morcar, the earls of Mercia and Northumbria, declared for him. Some of the other birds tittered audibly.
Then they all sat down again in a large ring on the bank, and begged the mouse to begin his story. And she's such a capital one for catching mice, you can't think! And oh! I wish you could see her after the birds! Why, she'll eat a little bird as soon as look at it!
She'll have me executed, as sure as ferrets. Go home this moment, and look on my dressing-table for my gloves and nosegay, and fetch them here, as quick as you can run, do you hear? She soon found herself in front of a neat little house, on the door of which was a bright brass plate with the name W. How queer it seems to be going messages for a rabbit! I suppose Dinah'll be sending me messages next!
Luckily for Alice, the little magic bottle had now had its full effect, and she grew no larger: still it was very uncomfortable, and as there seemed to be no sort of chance of ever getting out of the room again, no wonder she felt unhappy. I do wonder what can have happened to me! When I used to read fairy-tales, I fancied that sort of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one!
There ought to be a book written about me, that there ought!
Why, there's hardly room for you, and no room at all for any lesson-books! And so she went on, taking first one side, and then the other, and making quite a conversation of it altogether, but after a few minutes she heard a voice outside, which made her stop to listen.
Mary Ann! Presently the rabbit came to the door, and tried to open it, but as it opened inwards, and Alice's elbow was against it, the attempt proved a failure. Alice heard it. She did not get hold of anything, but she heard a little shriek and a fall and a crash of breaking glass, from which she concluded that it was just possible it had fallen into a cucumber-frame, or something of the sort. Who ever saw an arm that size? Why, it fills the whole window, don't you see?
This time there were two little shrieks, and more breaking glass-" what a number of cucumber-frames there much be! As for pulling me out of the window, I only wish they could! I'm sure I don't want to stop in here any longer! I wouldn't be in Bill's place for a good deal: the fireplace is a pretty tight one, but I think I can kick a little! They all made a rush at her the moment she appeared, but Alice ran her hardest, and soon found herself in a thick wood. I'd nearly forgotten that I've got to grow up again! Let me see: how is it to be managed?
I suppose I ought to eat or drink something or other, but the great question is, what? The great question certainly was, what? Alice looked all round her at the flowers and the blades of grass, but could not see anything that looked like the right thing to eat under the circumstances. There was a large mushroom near her, about the same height as herself, and when she had looked under it, and on both sides of it, and behind it, it occurred to her to look and see what was on the top of it.
Alice thought she might as well wait, as she had nothing else to do, and perhaps after all the caterpillar might tell her something worth hearing.

Alice remained looking thoughtfully at the mushroom for a minute, and then picked it and carefully broke it in two, taking the stalk in one hand and the top in the other. There's no pleasing 'em! Alice was more and more puzzled, but she thought there was no use in saying anything till the pigeon had finished.
In other languages, Lewis Carroll’s world takes a remarkable new turn.
Why, I haven't had a wink of sleep these three weeks! No, you're a serpent, I know that well enough! I suppose you'll tell me next that you never tasted an egg! I don't like them raw. Alice crouched down among the trees, as well as she could, as her neck kept getting entangled among the branches, and several times she had to stop and untwist it.
Soon she remembered the pieces of mushroom which she still held in her hands, and set to work very carefully, nibbling first at one and then at the other, and growing sometimes taller and sometimes shorter, until she had succeeded in bringing herself down to her usual size. Just as she said this, she noticed that one of the trees had a doorway leading right into it.
Then she set to work eating the pieces of mushroom till she was about fifteen inches high: then she walked down the little passage: and then- she found herself at last in the beautiful garden, among the bright flowerbeds and the cool fountains.
Always lay the blame on others! Of all the unjust things-" when his eye fell upon Alice, and he stopped suddenly: the others looked round, and all of them took off their hats and bowed low. I needn't be afraid of them! She is only a child!
Lewis et Alice by Didier Decoin
The soldiers were silent, and looked at Alice, as the question was evidently meant for her. The Queen's the Marchioness: didn't you know that? Alice thought she had never seen such a curious croquet-ground in all her life: it was all in ridges and furrows: the croquet-balls were live hedgehogs, the mallets live ostriches, and the soldiers had to double themselves up, and stand.
The chief difficulty which Alice found at first was to manage her ostrich: she got its body tucked away, comfortably enough, under her arm, with its legs hanging down, but generally, just as she had got its neck straightened out nicely, and was going to give a blow with its head, it would twist itself round, and look up into her face, with such a puzzled expression that she could not help bursting out laughing: and when she had got its head down, and was going to begin again, it was very confusing to find that the hedgehog had unrolled itself, and was in the act of crawling away: besides all this, there was generally a ridge or a furrow in her way, wherever she wanted to send the hedgehog to, and as the doubled-up soldiers were always getting up and walking off to other.
This copy is unlike anything else. It is the size of a speck of pollen, also invisible to the naked eye, and its 78 pages can only be read with a super-powerful microscope. The extraordinary research project between literary academics and scientists at the universities of Glasgow and Cardiff, made possible by support from the Welsh Crucible, will be announced this week. U sing electron-beam lithography, the technical work in transposing 26, words of the story on to a silicon chip was done by Dr Daryl Beggs, a Cardiff specialist on micro and nano-fabrication, transforming the technological capability of modern society by producing ever-smaller mechanical, optical and electronic products and devices.
