Sample text

They can because the narrator is clearly there as well as Alice, and can report not just what Alice does think but also what she doesn’t. ’’ The narrator then intrudes once more, adding, ‘‘which was very likely true’’—an implied reference to the consequences of such a fall that nicely undercuts Alice’s bravura. Not only are two di√erent points of view being expressed here, but as in ‘‘The Purple Jar,’’ they are distinguished from each other by the amount of knowledge they imply. The narrator knows more and apparently uses the knowledge to undercut the validity of the child protagonist’s innocence.

73). Comments like these throughout the text clearly imply that animals and the doctor who can think like an animal are wiser than humans and that their wisdom consists exactly in ways their values directly oppose those of adult civilized human beings. And since the doctor’s animal-like views are identified as childlike (the text says, for instance, that the doctor is followed through the town by ‘‘the dogs and the cats and the children’’ [5], a phrase that seems to equate the three), this text follows the familiar trajectory of di√erentiating between childlike and adult perceptions and values and, like Henry Huggins and The Snowy Day, clearly invites readers to come down on the side of the childlike.

Above all, Henry’s childlike ignorance has given both the adults on the bus in the story and child readers pleasure—the pleasure of knowing more than he does and finding his ignorance comical. For those who know better, childish ignorance is pleasing. Assuming there is a message here—that the story is, as children’s literature characteristically is, somehow didactic—the message is this: Be childish, like Henry, and you will please other people, especially adults and children with an adult degree of knowledge.
