    Oh no! I had this one when I was a child. My grandmother used it all the time to scare me!

    Struwwelpeter is a series of stories about a disobedient boy who never does what he is told and all the disasters that happen to him because of his actions. He starts off with bad grooming and it goes down hill from there. I remember my parents often calling me a Struwelpeter when my hair was messed up.

    I was born in 1955 in Germany and my mother read that book to me. It is a story of a little boy who would not let anyone groom him, he fought hard not to be groomed, so the lesson was, " See... this is what happens when you don't let me cut your hair or nails" , You will look like a freak.
