Sort: Struwwelpeter: The Story of Little Suck-a-thumb

My Oma came straight from post-war Germany. She is a very traditional German woman. When I was a child, she would read a German children book about a boy who would suck his thumb getting them cut off with giant scissors. The illustrations in the book had this little boy bleeding with no thumbs. Why this stands out was, as a child I DID suck my thumb.

I recently found out the name of this traditional German childrens book: Struwwelpeter. Here is an animated interpenetration of the story that still haunts me, The Story of Little Suck-a-Thumb.
