Trivia

The title, Het ij van uil, is a wordplay on two confusing sounds in the Dutch language: ei and ij are homophones (pronounced as the English a as in to make). Although both forms are used in many words, the standalone ei means "egg" while ij does not exist. Therefore, the form ij used in the title is not correct, but a common mistake for children at a young age. The literal English translation of the title is: Fox and Hare: The owl's egg.
