InASense, Lost… Unaware Of This “Business”

It’s another edition of InASense, Lost, and there’s still room to surprise me.

This time, it’s a children’s book entitled: The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew It Was None of His Business.

This is the cover:

Yes. That is shit on his head.

Basically, it’s about a mole that gets his head pooped upon, and the entire book he tries to figure out who did it.  SPOILER ALERT: It was the dog.  So the mole poops on the dog’s head as revenge.

The analysis from one Amazon reviewer:

So, what does this teach my children?

1. It’s ok to poop on others.
2. Revenge is better than forgiveness.
3. Different types of animal poop. (Is this really necessary?)
4. Poop is safe to touch.

Ultimately, poop is funny.  And let’s be honest… the author is German (Werner Holzwarth), and we all know they’re into Scheiße.  What?  It’s all over the TripleDoubleU so it must be true!

(SIDENOTE: If you want a good and decent children’s novel, I’d recommend A Sick Day for Amos McGee.  In fact, I’d recommend anything but The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew It Was None of His Business…)

No animal poop in this one. Just someone who feels like it.
