When Maja and I were at the pool on Saturday I was all of a sudden reminded of a book that I loved as a child: The Five Chinese Brothers. This memory was brought on by Maja taking repeated gulps of the pool water (I know, yuck! But she thought it was so funny, especially when I tried to stop her!) and I told her she couldn’t drink the whole pool. The memory of the first Chinese brother, and his ability to drink the sea came to mind.

From what I hear, this book isn’t very pc these days. Nonetheless, I remember it as being a wonderful children’s book and will take a look for it in the bookstore.



  1. Don’t remember that one, but I’ll have a look in the attic –
