This piece of rudeness was more than Alice could bear: she got up in disgust, and walked off [...]’” The mood is tense at this point, because it is evident that she is losing her patience. In another occasion, while she was in a tight spot, she thinks “‘It was much pleasanter at home,[...] when one wasn’t always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered around by mice and rabbits.

In Alice in Wonderland, Alice’s food related temptations are what cause her change of size and her progression through the world of Wonderland. Alice is often not even hungry when confronted with items of food in the story, it is their presence that tempts her to eat them: “In the middle of the court was a table, with a large dish of tarts upon it: they looked so good, that it made Alice quite hungry to look at them” (96).

For example in the Chapter II, after having experienced dramatic transformations in size by eating and drinking, she meets the White Rabbit in the hall.
