Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (often shortened to just Alice in Wonderland) is a story about a girl named Alice who enters two dream worlds: Wonderland and the Looking Glass. It originated as two separate novels by the British writer Lewis Carroll, first published in the mid 19th century, that are usually combined into one book in re-releases.

Alice in Wonderland has become one of the most popular children's stories of all time, with a large Periphery Demographic due to its Parental Bonuses. It spawned numerous adaptations into other media, most famously a 1951 animated film made by Disney, which spawned its own franchise. It's also the Trope Namer of Alice Allusion and Down the Rabbit Hole.
