The Boy, the Wolf, the Sheep and the Lettuce

The Boy, the Wolf, the Sheep and the Lettuce An intriguing tale of what REALLY happened between the boy, the wolf, the sheep and the lettuce Deep insights into the nature of interviewing and reality.Found it a bit difficult to breathe due to laughter through the majority of it. gelezen in de vertaling van Sandra van de Ven.Origineel kinderboek waarin de schrijver wil weten wat er nu precies gebeurde toen het fameuze raadsel plaatsvond Hij interviewt de betrokkenen de jongen, het schaap en de wolf , maar die vertellen allemaal een ander verhaal, net als de personages in Akutagawa s In het bos Rashomon and Seventeen Other Stories Een heerlijk nonsenskinderboek, waarin de schrijver maar doorkwebbelt als de personages in Diderots Jacques de fatalist en zijn meester Jacques the Fatalist Een verhaal is er dan ook nauwelijks, maar en passant krijgt de lezer met wie de schrijver ook in discussie gaat zoals de verteller in Ljoebimov van Abram Terts The Makepeace Experiment wel de filosofische boodschap mee dat de waarheid onkenbaar is, al is het alleen maar omdat de verteller zelf soms in het vage blijft en bijv het verhaal van de sla uit zijn duim zuigtVoeg hier aan toe opmerkelijke citaten en het is duidelijk dat dit vrolijke en grappige boekje stiekem literairder is dan je dacht Bovenstaande literaire vergelijkingen zijn dan ook geen poeha Dit boekje overleeft deze fier. This is a short kids book, wrapping a mystery narrative around the old puzzle of the boy who has to cross a river with a wolf, sheep and lettuce in a boat only big enough for one item at a time There s not much to it and I found the narrator incredibly annoying, but at least it was mercifully short. I loved reading this Ahlberg has such a knack for creating loveable characters and quirky scenarios, and in this case it s a flustered but determined writer who tells the story of researching the book we are reading The story itself is practically irrelevant though charming as it s really the narrator we re laughing at all the way through The narrator doesn t talk down to his junior fiction audience so there s plenty that the younger reader won t understand For example some philosophical references and lovely quotes that would require a lot of thought from the younger reader But these are not sly winks at all They re totally up front It s a bit like having a chat with your amiable uncle or aunt when you re only 7 and you don t understand much of what is being said, but get the gist of it Enough to enjoy the conversation and find it wonderfully stimulating It was a nice antidote to the very dark book I d read just beforehand You May Think You Know The Riddle Of The Boy, The Wolf, The Sheep And The Lettuce, But This Book Will Prove You Wrong Read Allan Ahlberg S SHOCKING EXPOSE Of The Truth Behind A Story We Think We All Know, Including Wolf Horror Canoe Shock Fibbing Exclusive Lettuce Revelations Moments Of Brilliant And Unforgettable Beauty You Ll Never Think Of Boys, Wolves, Sheep, Lettuces OR Riddles In The Same Way Again
