SO,without further ado,our story begins.....

When Alice awoke this morning,she simply knew it was going to be a most strange and curious day indeed.

She sat up in bed,stretched and yawned,when suddenly she noticed a very persnickety and impatient Rabbit at her bedside urging her to hurry along and follow him quickly!

Alice simply could NOT say no,she loved a good adventure!So she hurried after the Rabbit.My!What a trek that bunny took her on!Through the meadow beside her house,clamboring over rock walls~"Hurry Alice,we musn't be late!"He kept shouting.

That Rabbit even led her over the tiniest wooden fairy bridge~Alice had seen it once before when she was exploring~the one that leads through the Raspberry bramble.She was barely able to cross~what a sigh of relief she breathed when she finally reached the other side!

She knew the Rabbit must be taking her somewhere very special,to have had to cross a fairy bridge!She thought she had lost site of him,when suddenly,she spied him up ahead,in a spot she was certain where fairies must live.He was beckoning her to follow down a wooded path,"Quickly,quickly,Alice!Between these two tiny trees,it's the secret passage!".

Alice quickly obliged,and hurried down the path,by this time,she was so very excited to see where he was taking her!

Finally,she turned a wooded corner,and right in front of her,she couldn't BELIEVE her eyes!It was Mr.& Mrs.Frankenstein!She had always dreamt of meeting them!How could that rabbit have known?
"Welcome,Alice!Won't you please join us for tea,Darling?!!!"

Alice curtsied and replied,"Most certainly,I am honored!".When Mr.&Mrs. Frankenstein parted to let her through,she couldn't believe her eyes!It was the most wonderful tea party she had ever seen!Little fairy dollies all having tea and cake!There was such a joyful commotion going on,on top of that tea table!

Alice simply HAD to take a closer look!

Alice politely seated herself between Mr.&Mrs.Frankenstein,she was thrilled!

Alice was in awe of Mrs.Frankenstein!She was such a beautiful hostess!

Frank was looking so dapper!He was a very quiet fellow,but so charming indeed!

~And that Rabbit!He had himself a ball overseeing the whole thing!

Before she knew it,Alice was growing so very tired and sadly realized that it was time to be getting back home,everyone would be worrying about her.Mr.&Mrs.Frankenstein bid her goodbye,and assured her that she was most welcome anytime!

With a wiggle of his nose,that persnickety impatient Rabbit had Alice safely back home,and in her own bed.
