It is important to read children's literature, no matter your age, stage of life, maturity, etc. Good children's literature speaks to adults and conveys moral lessons and wisdom to all ages. This same theme is evident in many Disney movies and is salient in Bugs Bunny, where the humor and lessons are available to children, but part of the overall parcel of layers for adults. Fleming deviates from his normal style of writing and Bond thrillers to a children's adventure book, which contains many of the elements of a Bond novel. You still have Fleming's nationalism, haughtiness, displeasure at the loss of empire, joy in adventure, meaning of life, national stereotypes, and pleasurable writing. Not to mention, a delectable recipe for 'fooj.'
