The Paper Gardens

I've been reading since I was 3, and I haven't seen any reason to stop. I'll read pretty much anything I can get my hands on, though I will admit to a crippling addiction to fantasy and YA books.

Der Struwwelpeter (German Edition)

Der Struwwelpeter (German Edition) - Heinrich Hoffmann I keep forgetting about this book. Not quite sure why. It is hilarious.

Okay...it's not supposed to be funny. The book's a collection of cautionary stories for children.

But look at this.


Look at this, then look me in the eye, and tell me you didn't laugh.

The original stories were written in German, although you can read an English version translated by Mark Twain himself. Here's a link where you can read it online.

Bonus: I can read it in German AND English.

I know what I'm reading to my daughter next...
