Puzzles from Wonderland

Author: Lewis Carroll  | Date: 1870


John gave his brother James a box:

About it there were many locks.

James woke and said it gave him pain;

So gave it back to John again.

The box was not with lid supplied,

Yet caused two lids to open wide:

And all these locks had never a key-

What kind of a box, then, could it be?
