Overview

First published in 1845, “Struwwelpeter” (variously translated as “slovenly” or “shock-headed” Peter) has become widely recognized as one of the most popular and influential children’s books ever written. Heinrich Hoffman was a Frankfurt physician. Unhappy with the dry and pedagogic books available for children at the time, he wrote and illustrated “Struwwelpeter” as a Christmas present for his three-year-old son.
