    This book is the antidote to Disney It is the opposite of all those nasty sugar sweet versions of Cinderella the Little Mermaid and worst of all Winnie the Pooh view spoilerWorst because Eeyore was in the original AA Milne version a sarcastic depressive real loner of a donkey not a sweet natured stuffed toy hide spoiler

    Der Struwwelpeter is one of those picture books I grew up with and read and heard repeatedly as a child so I have an unreasonable amount of love for it even though it's kind of awful? All credit goes to my German speaking mom although I'm not sure if she shared this book with my siblings and me because she thought it was a funny book or was trying to scare us straightThis German children's picture book with moral lessons in poems was first published in 1845 when society particularly in Germany I suspect was much in the mode of spare the rod and spoil the child No children being spoiled here There are ten stories pretty much all intended to show the horrible things maiming death etc that will happen if you are a disobedient or misbehaving child For exampleIn Die gar traurige Geschichte mit dem Feuerzeug The Very Sad Story with the Match a girl plays with matches and is burned to death A pile of ashes is all that remains of her Her cats who tried to warn her to stay away from the matches are crying a river of tears Just like my cat would if anything ever happened to me I'm very sureIn Die Geschichte vom Daumenlutscher The Story of the Thumb Sucker my favorite as a child the mother warns her son Konrad not to suck his thumbs or the tailor literally the cutter who apparently has nothing better to do than snoop around looking for thumb sucking children will come and snip them right off But as soon his mother leaves the house pop Konrad's thumb goes right back into his mouth Suddenly this huge tailor leaps into the room and cuts off his thumbs with a giant scissors Bam The last picture shows Konrad standing there sadly with little stumps where his thumbs used to be Good timesAnd so it goes It's even a tiny bit liberal for its time There's a story about a guy hunting rabbits where a hare grabs the gun while he's asleep and turns it on him HAH Take thatAnd another story where three boys who are making fun of an African's dark skin are dipped in ink by a giant stern St Nicholas so they can find out what it really means to be blackThis line from the Wikipedia article on this book cracks me upHoffmann wrote Struwwelpeter in reaction to the lack of good children's books Intending to buy a picture book as a Christmas present for his three year old son Hoffmann instead wrote and illustrated his own bookOkay I thought this was hilarious as a child but I'm not sure sharing it with a 3 year old is the way to go But there it says right on the title page Funny stories and droll pictures for children 3 6 years old Lustige Geschichten und drollige Bilder für Kinder von 3 bis 6 Jahren Just for the record I do NOT recommend this for sensitive little ones But maybe if you've got a rowdy 5 or 6 year oldAnyway this poetry book is a classic in its own weird and gruesome way And I read it many many times as a child and I turned out fine SHUT UPHere's a link to the original German version free on Project Gutenberg and here's another link to an English translation that's pretty good if rather loose

    I read these classic morality tales enough times as a kid that I knew large chunks by heart But let's face it back then they were seriously out of date and now they're so archaic that they aren't amusing even as kitsch No wonder most children today haven't heard of themSo why doesn't someone produce an updated edition? I'm sure it wouldn't be difficult Here are some suggestionsScarlett Who Read Glossy Women's Magazines And Died Of AnorexiaKeith Who Didn't Believe In Climate Change And Was Drowned In A Flash FloodSaffron Who Ate Genetically Modified Food And Grew An Extra HeadJames Who Supported Liberal Healthcare Reform And Was EuthanasedEmily Who Switched Off Her Family Filter And Was Raped By A PedophileDarren Who Played Violent Video Games And Became A Serial KillerMadison Who uestioned The War On Terror And Was Exploded By An IslamicistFeel free to add your own And if anyone is inspired to actually go and do it please just mention my name somewhere in the introduction Update Jul 11 2017Life imitates art and possibly vice versa I hope that some poetically gifted person will take note of Ms O'Guinn's responsible and timely suggestion

    I read this innumerable times in English translation as a child and still know a lot of it by heart but somehow I had never got around to looking at the German original OMG it is the most hysterically funny thing I have seen in at least a month My German is very very poor and even so I found it impossible not to laugh on almost every page Here's a sample courtesy of the Gutenberg version If you also know the English Struwwelpeter just try reading it aloud while looking at the pictures and you'll see what I mean The contrast between the happy bouncy rhymes and the gruesome story of Paulinchen who's too fond of playing with matchesDie gar traurige Geschichte mit dem FeuerzeugPaulinchen war allein zu Hausdie Eltern waren beide ausAls sie nun durch das Zimmer sprangmit leichtem Mut und Sing und Sangda sah sie plötzlich vor sich stehnein Feuerzeug nett anzusehn»Ei« sprach sie »ei wie schön und feinDas muß ein trefflich Spielzeug seinIch zünde mir ein Hölzchen anwie’s oft die Mutter hat getan«Und Minz und Maunz die Katzenerheben ihre TatzenSie drohen mit den Pfoten»Der Vater hat’s verbotenMiau Mio Miau Miolaß stehn sonst brennst du lichterloh« Paulinchen hört die Katzen nichtDas Hölzchen brennt gar hell und lichtdas flackert lustig knistert lautgrad wie ihr’s auf dem Bilde schautPaulinchen aber freut sich sehrund sprang im Zimmer hin und herDoch Minz und Maunz die Katzenerheben ihre TatzenSie drohen mit den Pfoten»Die Mutter hat’s verbotenMiau Mio Miau Miowirf’s weg sonst brennst du lichterloh«Doch weh die Flamme faßt das Kleiddie Schürze brennt es leuchtet weitEs brennt die Hand es brennt das Haares brennt das ganze Kind sogar Und Minz und Maunz die schreiengar jämmerlich zu zweien»Herbei Herbei Wer hilft geschwind?In Feuer steht das ganze KindMiau Mio Miau Miozu Hilf das Kind brennt lichterloh« Verbrannt ist alles ganz und gardas arme Kind mit Haut und Haar;ein Häuflein Asche bleibt alleinund beide Schuh so hübsch und fein Und Minz und Maunz die kleinendie sitzen da und weinen»Miau Mio Miau Miowo sind die armen Eltern wo?«Und ihre Tränen fließenwie’s Bächlein auf den Wiesen

    Truth be told but I have always found rating Heinrich Hoffmann’s Der Struwwelpeter both in its German original and in the English translations I have read over the years rather difficult For while Der Struwwelpeter was and still is considered a classic of German children's literature nevertheless I still do not really believe that the stories contained therein are at all suitable for some children and especially not for those children who have very vivid and active imaginations Case in point both of my grandmothers repeatedly read me the German version of Der Struwwelpeter when I was a young child and some of the stories actually gave me vividly horrid nightmares For example I was absolutely positive that the tailor would come with his horrible scissors and cut off my brother's thumbs because he sucked his thumbs at the time and the terrible story of the little girl burned to death because she played with matches frightened me so much and lastingly that I did not even attempt to light a match until I was about 18 years old In retropsect though I am actually convinced that it was NOT the text the narrative of Der Sruwwelpeter but the author's bold and very graphic accompanying illustrations that gave me the nightmares that frightened me so much as being read Grimms' fairy tales from a standard unillustrated book produced no such reactions just a lasting appreciation of the talesNow granted Heinrich Hoffmann's stories and pictures are most definitely entertaining engaging to a point and indeed often very much thought provoking and Der Sruwwelpeter is also a worthwhile and interesting example of 19th century German children's literature and pedagogy especially since some critics are now also convinced that Hoffmann actually intended Der Struwwelpeter not only as a pedagogical tool for children and child rearing but as a humorous parody of similar such books that in the middle of the 19th cenuty proliferated the German market However and all the above having been said in my opinion Der Struwwelpeter is also not a book that should necessarily be read to and with very young children Older children might well find a discussion of the different pedagogical methods and whether Der Struwwelpeter might in fact be parodistic intriguing but der Struwwelpeter either in the original German or translation should really never simply be read to or with a young child without first making sure that the latter will not be needlessly frightened by the stories and by the accompanying pictures and judging from my own childhood reaction resulting nightmares are a distinct and real possibilty The book definitely is a classic the book also deserves to be ranked as a classic but with Der Struwwelpeter and especially if actually considering it for younger children reader beware is in my opinion most definitely a very necessary caveat

    According to recent research there was an additional story meant for publication but was somehow missing from the final book So in addition to the stories of the Shock headed Peter Cruel Frederick Fidgety Philip and Johnny Head in Air we can expect to read the following story in future editions of the StruwwelpeterThe story of the Lyin’ DonaldSince childhood it is sad to tellyoung Donald did not behave wellFrom morning when he bared his eyes’til nightfall all he told was liesThe truth to Don was nothing than “one and one and one makes four”His wordbook he liked to defaceand blacked out honesty and graceBecame a scoundrel and a crooktook some advice from Adolf’s bookHe one day ran for presidentstill kept on lyin’ with intentHe lost the ballot That was sweetwhen he cried out Rip Off Swindle CheatAnd kept on crying through the nighthis face turned red then blue then whiteWhen finally his heart gave outhe hit the floor flat on his snoutHe kept there lying stiff and stillbut no one cared of him untila pig appeared and snacked him uickand only left behind his wig This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 30 Unported License

    I was interested in this book first because the cover gave me Edward Scissorhand vibes and then also because it had off the wall stories And guess what? It did not let me downHonestly I wish I had known about this book sooner In my childhood years when I used to read Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and Goosebumps this would have been right there with them The uirkiness I miss old books Books like Madeline Where the Wild Things Are etcWhat I love about older books is that the authors weren't scared to tell their stories You could have fun with it be dark and it was still beautifully humorous The illustrations were my absolute favorite in this with their eccentricness I recommend this one to anyone who has no sensitivity issues or gets easily offended


  9. Manybooks Manybooks says:

    A classic German children's book but one that in my opinion is or rather can be too violent and also at times too strictly pedagogical for children or rather some children I was actually frightened by a number of the tales when I was a child and while I have much of an appreciation for and of Der Struwwelpeter as an adult it is my firm belief that many of the recounted anecdotes as well as the illustrations and in many ways these even so can be rather majorly creepy for imaginative andor exceedingly sensitive children I certainly would not simply read this book aloud to younger children unless I was absolutely positive and certain they would not be too scared by either the stories or the bold but also often rather strangely uncanny accompaying pictures I still sometimes have dreams about the tailor with his large scissors cutting off the digits of children who suck their thumbs And while some authorities on German children's literature now make the rather intriguing claim that Heinrich Hoffmann actually meant Der Struwwelpeter to be somewhat of a parody it does not change the fact that both text and even so the illustrations can in my opinion be a source of and for fear in sensitive childrenI do have to admit though that there is one short snippet in this collection that even as a small child I found and still now consider absolutely hilarious namely the episode where the bigoted insensitive bullying boys are punished by Saint Nicholas for having relentlessy taunted an African man by being dumped into a huge vat of ink and the ink is permanent and does NOT come off I laughed like anything and with massive Schadenfreude whenever my grandmother read this particular story to me And while in retrospect I think she was kind of shocked at my reaction I thought and still comtinue to think that this was a than deserved punishment for the boys' bigotry and nastiness

    Some kids might be a little traumatized with this book but I dare say most would love it All the things threatened to happen when children misbehave actually happen It's a dark book but amusing in its own way
