Tove Jansson's »Alice« pics: Dolphin at Party (p. 101)


This drawing refers to a pun in the Swedish text: again, one species – a real one this time – is substituted for another for the sake of a pun, which is hard to explain and of which the chapter has many. Here, a dolphin takes the place of a porpoise.

I kindly ask you to read everything on the Title Page of this picture collection carefully.
