Hoffmann, a 19th-century German physician, gained lasting fame for writing Struwwelpeter, a darkly humorous compilation of cautionary tales about naughty children. Created by the author specifically for American readers, Slovenly Betsy features the same perverse drollery as its predecessor. Adults and children alike will revel in these quaintly illustrated rhyming stories of bad habits and their dire consequences.
