" 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. " said.

" 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. " said.

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

" 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). " said.

" 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:http://www.archive.org/stream/english... " said.

" 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.org). " said.

" 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 here...http://video.google.com/videoplay?doc...*shakes fist at German psyche* " said.

" 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. " said.
