Question: Why does Jo want the wizard should hit the mommy? Does her stand reflect a child’s perspective on life? What is your choice?

Answer: Children look at the world from a different perspective. They look at people and things quite differently than the way adults do. Their perspective on life reflects simplicity and innocence. Jo has deep sympathy for Roger Skunk. Roger’s bad smell kept all little animals away from him. The little Skunk stood alone and wept. The wizard made Roger smell of roses which made him very happy. Other little animals were now attracted towards him. They now played and danced with him. Jo’s main anger is against Roger Skunk’s stupid mommy. It was she who forced the wizard to make Roger Skunk smell very bad again. The hero of the story is always a role model for children. The tender-hearted Jo is shocked at the attitude of the ‘stupid’ mommy. She wants Roger’s mommy to be punished. The wizard must hit on her head hard with his magic wand. I think Roger’s mother doesn’t deserve such a bad punishment. For her, Roger must smell like her young one. She is shocked when he starts smelling roses. A mother always loves her child. His complexion and smell don’t count for her at all. Her love transcends all such minor things.
