Now with updated English translation!

The story of Max and Moritz is a never-to-be forgotten classic of German culture. This time-honored story has entertained children and adults for over 150 years, and has not lost any of its irreverent humor. The story is not for the squeamish -- the two boys do come to a bad end, and are not mourned by anyone in the village -- but the pranks, the delightful verse, and the illustrations together make a jewel of a tale.

This edition includes an all-new professional translation, and all original illustrations, in color.
... From the Introduction
They stole from 'round the neighborhood,
They never did what good boys should.
Doing things of their own choosing,
That was so much more amusing,
Than sitting quietly in schools,
Paying attention, following rules,

Their tricks and pranks, I don't defend,
But oh my goodness - in the end?
It's a dreadful thing to tell,
I'll say right now - it didn't go well,
Read on, you'll learn of all their crimes,
Both in pictures and in rhymes.
