Wolfgang Hampel, Satire is my favorite animal, great satirical poem about Max and Moritz
Wolfgang Hampel, Satire is my favorite animal, great satirical poem about Max and Moritz Ach was muß man oft von bösen Kindern hören oder lesen! Wie zum Beispiel hier von diesen, Welche Max und Moritz hießen. 2015 marked the 150th anniversary of the children’s book Max und Moritz: Eine Bubengeschichte in sieben Streichen, which first appeared in print in October 1865. Wilhelm Busch’s now classic work relates in rhyming verse with accompanying illustrations the seven mischievous pranks of two young boys and their fateful demise. Busch authored several stories, but Max und Moritz was by far the most popular and successful. Even today, the work is well known in German-speaking countries and it holds a prominent place in the German cultural consciousness. You'll find a great satirical poem about Max and Moritz in the very witty bestselling book 'Satire ist mein Lieblingstier' ( Satire is my favorite animal ) by Heidelberg author Wolfgang Hampel.
