Book Excerpt: 
. . .

Hubs!—an airy curve one makes;

Plish!—a headlong dive he takes.


Hubs!—the second follows suit;

Plum!—the wave engulfs the brute.

"That's well ended," Caspar cries,
Puffs away and homeward hies.
[8]But, as often happens, here too
Things don't go as they appear to.
Paul and Peter,—so 'twas fated,—
Naked in the bushes waited
For a swim; and they descry
What was done by wicked Sly.

And like frogs they dove, kechunk,
Where the poor young dogs had sunk.

Quickly each one with his hand
Drags a little dog to land.

Facile à lire et histoire drôle.
Il y a une blague anti-sémite dans le cinquième chapitre, mais l'auteur est un allemand du 19e siècle, époque pendant laquelle l'anti-sémitisme était déjà à la hausse.

Каспар Шлих, куря табак,
Hёс под мышкой двух собак.
"Hу! - воскликнул Каспар Шлих.-
Прямо в речку брошу их!"

Хоп! - взлетел щенок дугой,
Плих! - и скрылся под водой.
Хоп! - взлетел за ним другой,
Плюх! - и тоже под водой.

Шлих ушёл, куря табак,
Шлиха нет, и нет собак.

One of Busch's most famous comics. An absolutely adorable story!
