Excerpt

"Ja, dat is het,--en dat doet het,--maar Dik is ook een bizonder kind,--en dat is-ie!"


Derde Hoofdstuk.

Dik wordt vader, en vrouw Smul begraaft haar neus in een roomtaart.

't Bleef met den winkel onder leiding van Dik en Anneke uitstekend gaan, zoodat men gerust kon voorspellen, dat zij nog eens in goeden doen zouden komen. Nu, Dik werkte dan ook met den grootsten ijver, en als hij de boeren afreed met boodschappen, verving Anneke hem op uitstekende wijze in den winkel. En zij was een zuinig vrouwtje, naar de meening van Dik haast wel een beetje al te zuinig.

"Hoor eens, Anneke," zei hij meer dan eens, "daar moet je toch voorzichtig mee wezen. Zuinig is goed, best zelfs, maar al te zuinig is verkeerd. Komen de vrouwtjes om een pondje van dit of van dat, dan moet je niet bang wezen, dat de schaal even doorslaat. 't Is beter overwicht te geven, dan te klein gewicht. Daar hebben de menschen een hekel aan, en dan gaan ze al gauw naar een anderen winkel, waar de maat wat ruimer is. Heusch, ee

****.

Dik Trom's dad keeps repeating about his grand-son as he did about his son: "He is a special child--and that he is". Obviously, master Kieviet was trying to get the laughs of his pupils with this running joke of the first book, and that grates a little.

Other than that, this is a fine book in the classic Dik Trom series, full of adventures.

Interestingly, this book was censored by the Nazis during the occupation of the Netherlands, and according to http://www.xs4all.nl/~jikje/Verbod/Boeken/trom.html the censored bits were never changed back, so this may be the first time you read the original version.
