How Does a Czar Eat Potatoes?
Rose cleverly translates Janosch's book, in which the czar drinks tea from a sugar-loaf while the peasant father only dreams of sugar. Children will appreciate the poetic style, while grown-ups will think: how true are these life contrasts.
"And your father, how does he bathe?
My father, bathe?
In the summer when it's hot
The river awaits him.
In the winter when it's cold
He waits for summer.
And that's the way, that's the way
My father bathes."
