Actors of the famous trilogy N.Nosov "The Adventures of Neznaika and His Friends" became shorty - fairy-tale little men with cucumber. The writer endowed the characters with pronounced character traits so that even small children would understand: one is a greedy hero, the other is a glutton, a third is a bore and a whiner, and the fourth is an ignoramus, falling due to ignorance and arrogance in ridiculous situations.
The main characters of the first part of the book wereShort men, living in the same house in the street Kolokolchikov - Neznayka and 15 of its neighbors. Neznayka is lazy, does not like to learn, but is very curious and active, which is why he always has troubles with him. His antipode is Znayka, a serious short man with glasses and a strict suit, who knows a lot, constantly learns and always thinks hard about his actions. Perhaps this is the only character that looks adult.
The rest behave very childishly, in spite ofSerious profession. For example, Dr. Pilyulkin practices "punitive medicine", prescribing to the offending Neznayke castor oil for the night. Even in this house live artist Tubik and musician Guslya. The latter plays on many instruments, and Tubik draws excellently. Otherwise, these are ordinary children who like to play tame and hide and seek, quarrel and make up with each other.
Shorty Donut and Syrupchik - gluttons and greedy. On their example, children should understand what leads to excessive eating of sweets. Grumbling - a classic grouch and bore, which pessimism spoils the mood of others. Uvalen Rasterayka shows readers how important it is to be organized and collected so as not to look for clothing at the last moment and not to freeze in a balloon without a hat. With Toropyzhka, troubles happen due to the fact that he is hyperactive and uncollected. The example of the brothers Avoska and Neboski should teach the children what serious consequences can lead to rash actions and the habit of relying on the case. Shorty A slobber is a typical phlegmatic who does not show initiative, does not go anywhere and speaks only when he is approached.
An important task is occupied by the screw and the shpuntik - suchActivists of the circle "Skillful hands", smart and hardworking shorties. They repair household appliances, make a car and help Znayka realize his scientific projects. At the same time they are active and curious - a good example for all readers of the book. Also live in the house is the hunter Pulka with the dog Bulka, with which Neznayka sometimes goes hunting.
The first part of the book simply tells the children inCheerful and accessible form about relationships between people, how important it is to forgive others for their shortcomings and strive to treat themselves, how ridiculous braggarts and chatterboxes ... In the world of shorties there is no family - kids and little ones are just friends, there is no industry and agriculture - - there is no money - there is a natural exchange of goods.
In the second part, entitled "Neznayka inSunny City "Neznayka and his two friends, baby Pachkul Pestnicki and baby Butler, fall into the city in which the communist society is built. There are new heroes, selfless workers, kind and sympathetic, who show travelers huge factories with fully automated production and the same automated farming. Residents of Sunny City do not know domestic concerns, because they eat in free cafes and use free automated laundry. But even here Neznayka has done ill, having turned two donkeys and a hound from a zoo into shorties. Unskilled, stupid new inhabitants nearly destroyed the life of the whole city. Only the intervention of the wizard saved the communist society.
In the last book of the trilogy "Neznayka on the Moon"Dunno and Donut, again through the fault of the first, fall into capitalism, successfully decaying in the lunar cities. Nosov is very understandable, in an accessible form he tells what surplus value and joint-stock company, unemployment and competition are, how people live in a world where man is a wolf to man. Neznayka shows its best features - courage and loyalty, overcoming difficulties with a new friend Kozlik. Donut, on the contrary, gives the will to the worst sides - greed and selfishness, turning into a capitalist exploiter. However, life re-educates him, and Donut finally learns to understand other shorties, becoming in their place.
