Max and Moritz

Wilhelm Busch

£6.99

Max and Moritz is perhaps the defining classic of German children’s literature. In this darkly hilarious story, two young boys exercise their talent for ingenious mischief in a variety of dazzling tricks. Whether stealing a widow’s chickens through her chimney or filling their teacher’s pipe with gunpowder, Max and Moritz bring chaos and comedy wherever they go.

Containing all of the original illustrations, this new translation by Mark Ledsom brings the original’s rhyming couplets to vibrant life and promises to delight a new generation of young readers.
