Description or summary of the book: First published in 1845, 'Struwwelpeter' (variously translated as 'slovenly' or 'shock-headed' Peter) has become widely recognized as one of the most popular and influential children's books ever written. Heinrich Hoffman was a Frankfurt physician. Unhappy with the dry and pedagogic books available for children at the time, he wrote and illustrated 'Struwwelpeter' as a Christmas present for his three-year-old son. The book relates in verse and pictures the often gruesome consequences that befall children who torment animals, play with matches, suck their thumbs, refuse to eat, fidget at meals, etc.
