"Who ever saw an arm that size?" said the rabbit. "Take it away!" Also, in painting 24, The White Rabbit falls into a cucumber frame. On the back of the artboard there is a small pencil sketch rough by the artist also showing Alice's arm protruding out of the tiny window.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll.
The novel was originally illustrated by John Tenneil; this adaptation for pre-school children was illustrated for the magazine Treasure in 1966 by the wonderful English artist Philip Mendoza who vividly brings the story to life with 70 paintings.
