Book by Hoffman, Heinrich
  • I was a thumb sucker and I was given this book to read as a wartime evacuee aged 6 in 1942. It scared me stiff then, and has been haunting me ever since. I never thought to see the day that it would come back to haunt me afresh...See it through the eyes of a child. Ban it now say's he; while still sucking a thumb! I only awarded it one star because from the instructions I wasn't allowed to give less.

  • Reading this book was like watching a horrific highway accident unfold before you. Unable to believe my eyes, I read to the end. One parable after another; each more freaky than the one before..... DO NOT leave your child alone in the room with this book!! If there is anything positive to say about this entry, it is that it definitely blind-sides you. No one could ever be truly prepared for this one.
