Eating the magic cake makes Alice shoot up to nine feet tall. She can easily reach the golden key, but once again, she's far too big to get into the garden. She begins to cry with frustration, and her "gallons" of tears create a pool that's four inches deep. The White Rabbit rushes by and, terrified at the sight of giant Alice, drops his gloves and fan. Alice picks up the fan, which causes her to shrink until she almost disappears.
The key is out of reach again. Worse, Alice slips and falls into the pool of tears, which, now that she's tiny, reaches up to her chin. A mouse swims by. Alice tries to start a conversation but blunders by talking about what a good mouser her cat is. The Mouse offers to tell her its sad story on the "shore" of the pool. Alice notices that the pool of tears now contains several other strange animals. She swims to shore with the other creatures following.
