“To be sure, he did not think much, but he put his boots on his feet and not on his head, and it takes some thinking even to do that”.

  1. I used to have a copy of Dunno’s adventures, published by the Soviet Foreign Language Publishers which my father brought back in the early 60s from Shanghai, but try as I might I can’t see them anywhere on my shelves. But I do have some satirical fables by Mikhail Saltykov-Shchedrin

      1. My mother actually introduced me to these as this was one of her childhood books and we found a set of individual chapters published as separate books in a book fair. I still have seven of these (a couple have vanished)- but the book itself has some 30 chapters. I hadn’t noticed these observations before since I haven’t really read these since I was a child-mostly look at the artwork. But I happened to pick one up, and there was this quote. Must read them all again. I am planning a full length post on the book- should be able to have it up in a couple of days
