Alice and White Rabbit
 "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" 

White Rabbit with a pocket watch. Illustration Polina Erofeeva
He is a very distinguished rabbit, with a large house and a gardener and always wearing gloves, a waistcoat and a pocket watch, but he is always in a hurry. His fear of the Queen of Hearts while at the croquet tournament makes him a little rude with Alice.
