This is a kids‘ book. … The Pig and the Box is about a pig who finds a magic box that can replicate anything you put into it. The pig becomes so protective of it, and so suspicious of anyone that wants to use it, that he makes people take their copied items home in special buckets that act as… well, they’re basically DRM. It’s like a fable, except the moral of the story is very modern in tone. … I made the book after hearing how the entertainment industry in Canada is keen on teaching young kids about how to „respect“ copyright. That was a bit heavy-handed, I thought, and otherwise despicable. Preying on small kids, brainwashing them so they believe what you’re doing is honourable and good… Feh. So I wrote this book partly as a response to that venture, to counter-act the confused ideals that young’ns are being exposed to these days. Also, I wanted to write potty humour.
Hab es mir kurz angesehen und kann mir nicht so recht vorstellen, dass meine Kizz den Humor kapieren werden. Ist wohl eher was für Kinder ab dem 5. Schuljahr, schätze ich mal.
