Since then it has become a national treasure in Germany, as familiar and nostalgic as Mother Goose. Here, writer/illustrator Lowell Isaac Hildebrandt has re-interpreted the poems to emphasize their ironic, humorous qualities, and has created new and graphic illustrations with linocuts. This edition is intended primarily for the enjoyment of adult readers, and, perhaps, very morbid and stout-hearted children.
