Oliver Twist

I bought an Oliver Twist book yesterday for Shreyas to read as its a book that affected me a lot as a child. But he was more interested in reading the Peter Pan book I got for him. So I decided to use my marketing skills with him and this is how the conversation went.

Me : Shreyas, you know Oliver Twist was a very poor boy and also an orphan, meaning he did not have parents.(I repeated the orphan point to make it sink for him)

Shreyas (without missing a beat) : Wow Amma, that means he would’ve been free to do anything he wanted all day without having to listen to parents.

Well..stumped that I never thought about this twist with Oliver Twist.
