advice to little girls

This morning, my father sent me an article from the New York Review of Books with a series of illustrations meant to accompany Mark Twain's Advice to Little Girls.

I loved the drawings (look at the little dachshund in the corner of the last one!) and also the mean little words of wisdom. I also liked the comment- "Twain did not squat down to be heard and understood by children, but asked them to stand on their tiptoes—to absorb the kind of language and humor suitable for adults."

 Thanks for sharing, Dad.
