DODO

At last the Dodo said, ‘everybody has won, and all must have prizes.’ 'But who is to give the prizes?’ quite a chorus of voices asked. 'Why, she, of course,’ said the Dodo, pointing to Alice with one finger; and the whole party at once crowded round her, calling out in a confused way, 'Prizes! Prizes!’ Alice had no idea what to do, and in despair she put her hand in her pocket, and pulled out a box of comfits, (luckily the salt water had not got into it), and handed them round as prizes. There was exactly one a-piece all round. 'But she must have a prize herself, you know,’ said the Mouse. 'Of course,’ the Dodo replied very gravely. 'What else have you got in your pocket?’ he went on, turning to Alice. 'Only a thimble,’ said Alice sadly. 'Hand it over here,’ said the Dodo. Then they all crowded round her once more, while the Dodo solemnly presented the thimble, saying 'We beg your acceptance of this elegant thimble’; and, when it had finished this short speech, they all cheered. Alice thought the whole thing very absurd, but they all looked so grave that she did not dare to laugh; and, as she could not think of anything to say, she simply bowed, and took the thimble, looking as solemn as she could.
