Getting older, you learn the world is not like in children’s books, some differences between fables and reality are obvious: there is a clear deficit in dragons. While many other differences fall into the reality is complicated category, sometimes the books just seem to miss some of the magic of reality.

I find this sad, because this shows that whoever wrote the child’s book was not looking at reality with the right eye – the same people who draw the rainbows backward. One typical example of this is that the moon only shows at night in children’s book, all our imagery associates the moon with the night. This is strange to me because the moon does not seem to be bothered by such rules…

Il n’y a pas d’étoiles sur Internet…
