Do Not Open This Book!



Author: Michaela Muntean
Illustrator: Pascal Lemaitre

This is one of the "funnest" books I've read in a while. If you are so bold as to disregard the title and open the book, you'll find that it is not yet finished. Instead you will find a busy and disgruntled pig. He is in the process of putting the book together and he makes it clear that you are in his way. He has writer's block, and its name is YOU. But don't listen to the pig! Do, DO open this book! (haha... doodoo.) You won't regret it!

This is the kind of book that I would classify as "postmodern"... if I knew what "postmodern" meant. The word is thrown around a lot (particularly in college, particularly in coffee shops, and usually by particularly particular people), yet few seemed to really know what they meant when they used it. (Those who did actually know what postmodern meant would usually keep it to themselves--preferring to sit in dimly-lit corners, carefully sipping their earl grey tea, and quietly pretending that they didn't put gel in their hair to make it look like they just woke up.)

Luckily, having worked in a college coffee shop, I have figured it out! Using the cumulative data from hundreds of coffee shop conversations that I have either been a part of or overheard, I have been able to piece together that postmodern means "especially cool if you are stoned." (i.e. "Don't you think that the pervasive use of mirrors as a symbolic element in Borges' short fiction is reflective of the postmodern nature of his labyrinthine narrative technique?" or "Dude, eating curly fries at 4:20 is soooo postmodern. Hey apron-man, can I get a refill on this apple pie?")
