About the Author

Heinrich Hoffmann (1809-1894), a doctor in his native Frankfurt (where there is a museum devoted to his work), often told funny stories to put his young patients at their ease. Frustrated by the moralistic tone of contemporary children's books, he wrote and illustrated this picture book as a Christmas present for his three-year-old son, and it has delighted and terrified generations since.

With Hitler in the West

Author: Heinrich Hoffmann Format: Paperback Release Date: 20/04/2015

In May 1940, the German Army swept over Europe, unleashing a campaign of battles of annihilation on a hitherto unheralded scale. France was quickly overcome and Holland, along with Belgium, fell in a matter of days. At the head of this vast operation was the Fu?hrer with his Supreme Command, and on hand to document the highlights of their inimitable campaign was Heinrich Hoffmann, Hitler's close friend and official photographer. This is an invaluable photographic record of the events of Spring 1940, originally published as Mit Hitler im Westen, which was regarded as Heinrich Hoffman's finest work. The striking images displayed within provide both an intimate view inside the life of the Fu?hrer, and present a chilling glimpse into one of history's most vicious campaigns, and darkest hours. An important historic work, With Hitler in the West provides a fascinating insight into the events of 1940, that shook the world.

Slovenly Betsy, Proud Phoebe, Lazy Charlotte, and other naughty girls get their comeuppance in these darkly humorous fables by Heinrich Hoffmann, the author of Struwwelpeter (Shock-headed Peter). Hoffmann's Slovenly Betsy features the same hilarious approach to manners and morals as its famous predecessor. Adults and children alike will revel in these quaintly illustrated rhyming stories of bad habits and their dire consequences.More than 40 full-color drawings accompany Hoffman's cautionary tales in verse of Sophie Spoilall, who deliberately breaks her toys; The Little Glutton, whose greed for sweets leads to a misadventure with a beehive; Envious Minnie, whose pretty face is ruined by jealousy; and other rude and disobedient children. The first large-format edition of a lost classic, this volume will delight book collectors and bibliophiles as well as all readers with a taste for perverse drollery.
