I'm truly delighted to have received this little book as a part of the bc ornament exchange. I'm familiar with Der Struwwelpeter (and a few of the other verses), but have never been able to read all of them all the way through. (Mein Deutsch ist sehr schlect.) And I never knew that Twain had translated it - and as a Weinachtsgeschenk (Is that even close to richtig?) for his daughters! Very cool choice for a Christmas exchange !!

I'm really looking forward to spending more time with both Twain's Nachdictung and the new, better understanding I'll have of the original. Thank you so much, chawoso!
