were you entertained (or traumatized?) by this classic german book when you were a kid?
my favorites/most feared stories were pauline and the matches, (they changed her name to harriet in my copy). the last picture of the kitties crying around the pile of her ashes always brought a tear to my eye. and naughty little suck-a-thumb hit a little too close to home when i was a little suck-a-thumb myself…i found this animation that somebody made of suck-a-thumb, take a peek at it here if you want to be creeped out.
