Struwwelpeter: Fearful Stories and Vile Pictures to Instruct Good Little Folks Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since 1845, millions of parents have purchased Struwwelpeter, a book that threatens their children with the consequences that befall the disordered and disorderly. Thumbs are sheared off, eyes fall out of sockets, faces are pecked to death and bodies waste to nothing. Though castigated in recent years for its sadistic approach to child-rearing, Struwwelpeter remains a cultural phenomenon...translated into many languages, the subject of a popular German museum, and the unmistakable influence of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which also disposes of wretched kids in rhyme.

The Feral House edition includes Sarita Vendetta's macabre illustrations to Heinrich Hoffmann's verse, the entire original edition in color, Struwwelpeter-inspired wartime propaganda titled Struwwelhitler, and a revealing introduction by Jack Zipes, an authority on folklore and children's literature, whose journal, The Lion and the Unicorn, devoted an entire issue to Heinrich Hoffman and Struwwelpeter.

Review:

"In art and verse there is more than enough here to satisfy anyone's taste for crime and punishment." Horn Book

Synopsis:

A new edition for adults of the classic children's stories also includes a World War II-era parody entitled Struwwelhitler.

Synopsis:

Now just over 150 years old, "Struwwelpeter (Slovenly Peter)" offers an unforgettable and morbid collection of stories that show the horrific outcomes of naughty behavior. 66 illustrations, 24 in color.
