Please, dear, DO NOT SET YOURSELF ON FIRE... you will make the kitties sad!   Der Struwwelpeter: "Harriet and the Matches".

Der Struwwelpeter, Harriet and the Matches. From an older German childrens' book. Not for the faint of heart.

Der Struwwelpeter by Heinrich Hoffmann, a book written by a psychologist to frighten children into good behavior. Made into a gothic opera which is also amazing. This used to terrify and enthrall me when I was little.

Oh my goodness. I completely forgot about this book! Used to read to allllll the time when I was little - Der Struwwelpeter

Der Struwwelpeter: The Story of the Thumb Sucker

Der Struwwelpeter. One of my all time favorite childhood books. This book is why I never sucked my thumbs!

Der Struwwelpeter - the bane of modern child raising. However, can I just say, as a young child these stories did not frighten me, but felt wild and boasting of an over-active imagination to me!
