A grandfather took his little grandson to the art gallery one day. With program in hand they wandered through looking at the various displays. They came to one picture and both stood there silent for awhile, trying to make some sense of it.
“Whatever is it?” the little boy finally asked.
Grandpa consulted the program. “It’s supposed to be Sunrise in the Forest,” he said in a doubtful tone.
The boy looked at it for another minute. “Well, why isn’t it then?”
I’ve retold this story — at least the basics — from one I read in The Friendship Book of Francis Gay, published yearly in England by D.C. Thompson & Co. There are many interesting little stories & poems in these books and you can often find them at Second-hand shops or used book sales. This year’s edition can be bought in most bookstores at the beginning of the year.
