What a story!
I was on the edge of my seat reading about these puppets and their lives so intensely. The way Dietlind reflects psychological aspects of the human condition through puppetry is as clever as it is true. With necessary humour, the story takes you on a journey through many of the facets of life we all encounter, making it easily relateable.
The language used is easily digestible, and I am sure there are different levels of moral teachings for different levels of understanding.
Some favourite lines
‘Her words merged seamlessly into a spasmodic sobbing.’
‘Dede puppets usually don’t change colour, but believe me, she did.’
L’Artiste for ‘copyrighting his appearance’
‘eyes didn’t match her answers’
My favourite part was about the friendship. ONE: Friendship, TWO: Friendship and THREE: Friendship. No question about it! True friendship really is a virtue.
Thought provoking and inspirational, for both adults and children alike.
