This fairy tale is all about a character that inherits their cheerful temper from their father who was a cheerful chap. The character’s father was a hearse driver, so could have easily not been cheery. However, when everyone saw him even though he was in all black and infront of a hearse, they couldn’t help but smile at him.
The character tells us all about how he reads an intelligent paper which tells him everything he needs to know. He believes that the paper gives him everything he needs to know any anything. He tells us how he likes to the churchyard to explore and find out the history of people in the churchyard. It continues with the character’s analysis of gravestones.
It was an odd little tale, not one that stands out for me, but it was interesting to read!
