Read full description of the books Cuentos del Pobre Diablo = The Devil's Storybook:NPR did a recent feature on children’s literature which piqued my interest because I wasn’t aware children read anymore. I listened as a children’s book author reviewed her favorite books from childhood and reveled in her choices, which included The Boxcar Children series (which I read over a summer in grade school; probably between 2nd and 3rd grade) and Roald Dahl’s entire catalog of work. I realized that what this children’s author and I had in common was that as kids we clearly both valued being spoken to like we were like minded people. I know I always loved books that spoke to me like I was in on it, and not like it needed to be dumbed down for my tiny kid brain.
One of the book’s on the woman’s list was this one, which I had never heard of. She read a passage and I knew I had to read it. It is a collection of short folk tale-like stories about the Man Himself (the bad one). What I like about this book is that sometimes the Devil prevails! None of the stories are sugarcoated so the good always wins over evil, but the common thread is that the person who acted with the least amount of common sense during the course of the story was punished.
If I even liked children, I would read this book aloud to them and hopefully they’d get scared.
