Look inside the book:
Of course, he thought most of his father, but he by no means considered Presto and Simon so very much beneath him, as a big man would have. ...Johannes had contained himself well, through all this seriousness, but when he saw a tiny toad whirling around with a tall lizard, who now and then lifted the unhappy toad high up off the floor and described a half circle with her in the air, he burst out into a merry laugh. ...Everybody laughed at him, and the master, astonished at such amazing stupidity, as he called it, made Johannes remain after school to write out this sentence a hundred times: 'The age of my aunt is very great, the age of the sun is greater; but the greatest thing of all is my amazing stupidity.'
About Frederik van Eeden, the Author:
His best known written work, 'De Kleine Johannes' ('Little Johannes'), which first appeared in the premiere issue of De Nieuwe Gids, was a fantastical adventure of an everyman who grows up to face the harsh realities of the world around him and the emptiness of hopes for a better afterlife, but ultimately finding meaning in serving the good of those around him. ...He established a commune named Walden, taking inspiration from Thoreau's book Walden, in Bussum, North Holland, where the residents tried to produce as much of their needs as they could themselves and to share everything in common, and where he took up a standard of living far below what he was used to.
