Misinterpreting Literature

The Book Thief is a 2005 novel that was adapted into a 2013 film of the same name. I haven’t read the book or seen the film but I imagine I’d probably enjoy both. Certainly what I do know of them suggests that they are worthy works that depict the horrors of the Nazi regime and I really shouldn’t be making fun of them in any way.

And I’m not.

But the title did inspire my latest doodle, which, as it turns out, has nothing much to do with either the novel or the movie.

But I still think ‘The Book Thief’ is as appropriate a name as any for my latest creation…
