    • 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 spoiler)[Worst because Eeyore was, in the original, A.A. Milne version, a sarcastic, depressive real loner of a donkey, not a sweet-natured stuffed toy. (hide spoiler)]Struwwelpeter is all about children getting punished in the nastiest possible ways for their awful misdeeds. I loved this book when I was a kid. I also loved Dis [...]


    • 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 straight.This German children's picture book with moral lessons in poems was first published in 1845, when society (particularly in Ge [...]


    • 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 But, let's face it, back then they were seriously out of date, and now they're so archaic that they aren't amusing even as kitsch.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 them.So why doesn't someone produce an updated edition? I'm sure it wouldn't be difficult. Here are some suggestions:Scarlett, Who Read Glossy Women's Magazines And Died Of AnorexiaKeith, Who Didn't Believe In Climate Change And [...]



    • 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, [...]


    • 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 Struwwelpeter:The story of the Lyin’ DonaldSince childhood, it is sad to tell,young Donald did not behave well.From morning when he bared his eyes’til nightfall, all he told was lies.The [...]


    • Rating this translation of the classic German picture book is difficult. Yes, Heinrich Hoffmann's Der Struwwelpeter was and still is considered a classic of German children's literature, but nevertheless I still do not really believe that the stories contained therein are at all suitable for some children, especially those children who have very vivid and active imaginations. My grandmother repeatedly read me the German version when I was a child, and some of the stories actually gave me nightma [...]


    • 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 more 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 more so) can be rather majorly creepy for ima [...]


    • Ein pädagogisches Verbrechen und ein Alptraum für jedes Kind. Erziehung basierend auf Angst und Schrecken, ungeeignet für Kinder - ja das war die Pädagogik der 70er Jahre, in der auch die G'sunde Watschn noch propagiert wurde, mit der viel zuviele Kinder ins Koma geprügelt wurden. Meine Geschichte war jene mit dem Suppenkaspar und mit Hans Kuck in die Luft. Ein Graus! 😡😡Auf den Struwelhitler in dieser Version wäre ich aber gespannt.


    • 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.


    • I had read a number of reviews about this book, and have read the Hitler propaganda version Struwwelhitler: A Nazi Story Book, so when I found this book for 50c in a second hand bookstore, I picked it up. My edition isn't that old (a 1981 printing of a 1972 publication) but it maintains the classic artwork, and without doubt has a dated feel to the content - kitsch really.Kitsch it might be, but these morality tales are still funny, and the brightly coloured pictures are great. My daughter is st [...]


    • Should be sub-titled: "Scaring the Crap out of Children & Adults since 1845" or "How to Traumatize Your Children without Actually Beating Them."Complete with scary-ass illustrations.Hold me.


    • This book is wonderful in a gruesome sort of way and the illustrations are the best! My favorite was the tale of the little girl who played with matches, even though her good cats, Minz und Maunz, tried to make her behave. The moral of the story is you should always listen to your cats.The story of the boy who never looked where he was going was edifying. These days he would be looking at a smart phone, not the sky, but his terrible end would be the same! Be warned!!!Thank you, Tadiana for intro [...]


    • I read this book as a child. While I loved the stories of bad children getting their due ( I had three brothers who were always up to no good. I think I wished some serious consequences would come their way), I mostly remember poring over the wonderful illustrations. I particularly liked the portrayal of animals- loved the rabbit wearing spectacles and toting a gun.(I had forgotten all about this until recently reading Petra's great review. Thanks Petra!)


    • This collection of German folk tales intended to "instruct good little folks" has to be seen to be believed. Nightmarish, ghoulish, absolutely twisted it's a sheer, shocking delight! The Google preview link above underneath the book cover image offers a great look inside, because this grisly edition is REALLY hard to come by now.


    • The tales told here remind me of Mother Goose type of little rhymes, used to teach children to behave or who knows what awful fate they may meet. Some of these have mild punishments for misbehaving, while others are down right horrific. It is likely that these short verses worked well at keeping children out of too much trouble when they were written in 1845, while children may not have truly believed the outcomes they probably didn't want to step out of line either. Children today, overall, are [...]


    • I only read it as an adult, and the gruesome stories, loved by my mother's generation were loved by my kids, too. And then I saw a brilliant theatre production in London . This book, written by a fellow GP is still fun.



    • Loved this book. Had been trying to get it for years and now I finally have! There's lots of reviews of people saying it's horrifying and cruel and with zero psychological value, and I couldn't disagree more! First of all, the stories ain't all that terrible and shouldn't be taken so literally. The author wasn't killing real kids, was he? And there's a lesson behind almost every story. For example, take the one about the girl playing with matches and getting burn. Isn't that a true thing? Doesn' [...]


    • Caso strano e affascinante quello dello Struwwelpeter ideato in occasione del Natale 1844 dal medico di Francoforte Heinrich Hoffmann, esempio di pedagogia "metternichiana" tanto letterale quanto cruenta e crudele (e per questo oggi rifiutata) diventato simbolo di un'epoca e oggetto di parodie, "sequel" e interpretazioni le più diverse. Famoso quanto Pinocchio nelle culture nordiche, da noi è un personaggio misconosciuto e quindi assolutamente da recuperare. Altrove forse è più noto, come se [...]


    • Wow! This will scare the kids into behaving for sure - complete with graphic pictures of injuries and death. Written in the 1800's. I read the English 1985 translation. I shall share the highlights of my top 3 favorite disturbing fairy tales of the Struwwelpeter collection(shared in no particular order):#1 Story of Augustus Who Would Not Have Any SoupAugustus was a chubby lad; Fat ruddy cheeks Augustus hadAugustus ate his soup everyday just like a good little fat boy should but then (view spoile [...]


    • Read this in translation as a kid. *unilingual* Stories designed to terrify children into compliance. Which obviously failed on me. *flaunts deviancy* ;)The girl who plays with matches is burned alive. The fussy eater starves to death. The umbrella-user is carried, by a storm, to his doom. Clearly, he was deserving. ;)The most horrific is The Story of Little Suck a Thumb which is animated heredeo.google/videoplay?doc*shakes fist at German psyche*


    • Book review for learners of German:We all know the original Grimm’s fairy tales were more gruesome than the Disney stories we grew up watching. Der Struwwelpeter is another example of a children’s book that today’s parents find shocking even though the book has been read to children for generations. Nearly every German knows this story, so it is culturally significant. But, no, I would not read this to my daughter. You can view it for free on Project Gutenberg (gutenberg).


    • This is a short, classic children's book written in verse. It is educational, and warns kids about the dangers of not eating, disobeying parents, mistreating animals And despite being a little too graphic, it is all very clever, and the rhymes are fun to say aloud.I'd read it along with my kid, and would explain the messed up parts so he'd get the gist of the moral message.Read it in minutes to have fun:archive/stream/english


    • A ghastly and horrifying collection of children's stories guaranteed to frighten and scare your children. What else is there to say about a book where children's thumbs are severed as a punishment for sucking them or where little girls are burned to death because they play with match (nothing quite as disturbing as seeing an illustration of two sad cats crying a river of tears beside the charred remains of a disobedient German child).


    • I read this as a child and hated it to the point that if it lay around somewhere in a waiting room, I would cover it with other books so I didn't have to see it. Maybe it is okay if you read it as an adult, as a childrens book I find it unsuitable.


    • Next to Max and Moritz, this is the best book to traumatize disobedient children. Those Germans know their discipline. . .


    • I thank my maternal grandmother for the gift of readingSo very inventive and unique. Glad I got it. Love old classic tales. Something to be said for the old stuff.


    • No one ever yet could tellWhere they stopp'd, or where they fell:Only, this one thing is plain, Bob was never seen again!just saying.


    • Struwwelpeter von Heinrich Hoffmann ist ein Kinderbuchklassier aus dem Jahr 1845. Ich habe das Buch als Kind schon geliebt und fand es gar nicht grausam. Ich frage mich nur, warum das Buch Struwwelpeter heißt, denn in meiner Ausgabe ist keine Geschichte dieses Namens, sondern ein Gedicht vom Christkind.Natürlich liest man so ein Buch anders, wenn man erwachsen ist. Man sieht vieles vielleicht kritischer und aus anderem Blickwinkel, dennoch finde ich das Buch immer noch sehr gut, nur hatte ich [...]
