"Box her ears" in "Alice in Wonderland" means to give someone a light slap on the side of the head as a form of punishment or reprimand. The Queen of Hearts often uses this phrase when she is angry or displeased with someone.

Why do people like Alice in Wonderland?

It all started in Oxford, England in a boat beneath a sunny sky where echoes fade and memories die. Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), Reverend Duckworth, Alice Liddell (The Real Alice), Lorina Liddell, and Edith Liddell were all in that boat that famous day. Lewis was telling the three little girls of a marvelous place called Wonderland and Alice loved the stories so much that she asked him to give it to her as a book. So Lewis set to work and gave it to her for Christmas. Later his friend George Macdonald had his children read the story and they told Lewis to publish it. Thus the story was born on a boat. I suggest you read "Still She Haunts Me" it'll explain every detail of why the Wonderland was made.

Did Alice die in Wonderland?

Alice is then called up as a witness. She accidentally knocks over the jury box with the animals inside them and the King orders the animals be placed back into their seats before the trial continues. The King and Queen order Alice to be gone, citing Rule 42 ("All persons more than a mile high to leave the court"), but Alice disputes their judgement and refuses to leave. She argues with the King and Queen of Hearts over the ridiculous proceedings, eventually refusing to hold her tongue. The Queen shouts her familiar "Off with her head!" but Alice is unafraid, calling them out as just a pack of cards; just as they start to swarm over her. Alice's sister wakes her up for tea, brushing what turns out to be some leaves and not a shower of playing cards from Alice's face. Alice leaves her sister on the bank to imagine all the curious happenings for herself.

Was a second Alice in Wonderland made?

Alice in Wonderland is a name synonymous with both novels about the young Alice's exploits by Lewis Caroll. The first novel, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, was published in 1865 and charts - quite obviously - Alice's adventures in Wonderland, while the sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, soon followed in 1871 following - yet again quite obviously - her exploits through the Looking-Glass.If this question was posed in reference to the Disney film, or any other film adaptions, I am more than certain that no sequels were produced for two main reasons. The first being that the plots of both books were borrowed from greatly to create one story in most cases, making the need for a sequel obsolete. The other, in direct reference to the Disney film, can be attributed to the film's less than satisfactory box office success - only becoming popular through video, television - and now DVD - release to the point it is now a cult classic.
