Example text

You’ll get used to it in time,” said the Caterpillar ; and it put the hookah into its mouth, and began smoking again. This time Alice waited patiently until it chose to speak again. In a minute or two the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth, and yawned once or twice, and shook itself. ” “ One side of what ? The other side of what ? ” thought Alice to herself. “ Of the mushroom,” said the Caterpillar, just as if she had asked it aloud ; and in another moment it was out of sight. Alice remained looking thoughtfully at the mushroom for a minute, trying to make out which were the two sides of it ; and, as it was perfectly round, she found this a very difficult question.

This time there were two little shrieks, and more sounds of broken glass. “What a number of cucumber-frames there must be ! ” thought Alice. “ I wonder what they’ll do next !

C HA P T E R V I Pig and Pepper For a minute or two she stood looking at the house, and wondering what to do next, when suddenly a footman in livery came running out of the wood—(she considered him to be a footman because he was in livery : otherwise, judging by his face only, she would have called him a fish)—and rapped loudly at the door with his knuckles.
