There ought to be a book

illustration "Follow me" by Ekaterina Shmyrina
'It was much pleasanter at home,' thought poor Alice, 'when one wasn't always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits. I almost wish I hadn't gone down that rabbit-hole — and yet — and yet — it's rather curious, you know, this sort of life! I do wonder what can have happened to me! When I used to read fairy-tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one! There ought to be a book written about me, that there ought! And when I grow up, I'll write one.'

Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 4 - The Rabbit Sends in a Little Bill, 1865.
