Review: Der Struwwelpeter

Title: Der Struwwelpeter

Author: Heinrich Hoffman


Goodreads Summary:

So the summary is in German so now sure what is says but here you go!

Wer kennt nicht die Verse über den Zappelphilipp, Hans Guck-in-die -Luft und den Suppenkaspar? Der berühmteste deutsche Kinderbuchklassiker liegt hier in einem Nachdruck der Frankfurter Originalausgabe vor

My Review:

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 down!

Honestly, 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 quirkiness! I miss old books! Books like Madeline, Where the Wild Things Are, etc.!

What 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!
