My friend is taking a course on children's books
  • Her: this is the hardest class i have ever been in that wasn't math-based
  • ever
  • Me: Yeah, those things are like trying to write a haiku in Japanese
  • Her: WHAT POV IS "IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE" WRITTEN IN, RUE
  • WHAT POV IS IT IN
  • IS IT THIRD PERSON OMNISCIENT? NO, BECAUSE THERE IS "YOU" DOING ACTION
  • BUT YOU ARE NOT /DOING ACTION/
  • BECAUSE IT'S HYPOTHETICAL
  • SO IT ISN'T SECOND PERSON
  • BUT THERE'S A BOY IN THE PICTURES
  • DOING THE ACTIONS
  • SO IS HE THE ACTOR AND THE READER THE PERCEIVER OF HIS NARRATION?
  • OR IS HE THE ONE RECEIVING THE NARRATION AND PERCEIVING HIS ACTIONS???
  • Me: damn, son. that's deep.
