Book Description:
Dr. Heinrich Hoffmann's Der Struwwelpeter, the best known German children's book, was first published in Frankfurt in 1845. 'Shock-Headed Peter' or 'Slovenly Peter' (as it is mostly known in English speaking countries) has conquered the children's book market of the world not only with dozens of translations but also literally hundreds of imitations, adaptations, take-offs and parodies. These 'merry stories and funny pictures for children between 3 and 6 years,' as Dr. Hoffmann termed them, are cautionary tales, by turns macabre, touching, and wickedly funny. Where else does every recalcitrant child or cruel adult get his or her 'deserts,' and that within a few pages?Special Features -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Stylistically elegant, rhyming Latin translation that is accessible to the non-scholarly reader Facing page original German text and popular English translation Hoffmann's original illustrations, plus detailed enlargements of them Appendix with new, never before published contemporary English translation, Scruffypete, by Ann Elizabeth Wild Afterword by Walter Sauer, on the history of the work and its Latin translations Select Latin-English glossary Also available:Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus in Latin!: Vere, Virginia, Sanctus Nicolaus Est! - ISBN 0865165068Tonight They All Dance: 92 Latin & English Haiku - ISBN 0865164401For over 30 years Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers has produced the highest quality Latin and ancient Greek books.
