Dormouse Jack in the Box


"Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder what you're at!"

You know the song, perhaps?'
`I've heard something like it,' said Alice.

`It goes on, you know,' the Hatter continued, `in this way:--

"Up above the world you fly,
Like a tea-tray in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle--"'

Here the Dormouse shook itself, and began singing in its sleep `Twinkle, twinkle, twinkle, twinkle--' and went on so long that they had to pinch it to make it stop.

A paperclay dormouse sleeps in his papermache/chipboard teapot at the tea party in Wonderland with Alice. Box measures a real teapot size at 6 1/2"h x 9 3/4"w. Mouse measures 4" tall.

"...the Dormouse fell asleep instantly, and neither of the others took the least notice of her (Alice) going, though she looked back once or twice, half hoping that they would call after her: the last time she saw them, they were trying to put the Dormouse into the teapot."
