Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7 Anyone familiar with the comic strip which featured the Katzenjammer Kids will recognize the Kids' antecedents in Max and Moritz . First published in Germany in 1872, the book relates seven mischievious and, by today's standards, malicious pranks played by the two before they are ground to bits in a mill and gobbled up by ducks. ``Max and Moritz'' editions have been generally unavailable, and students curious about the history of cartoon and comic illustration will welcome the chance to view these tinted etchings, facsimiles of the original text. Arndt's translation in rhymed couplets reads smoothly and provides a lively introduction to the historic duo. Susan Hepler, formerly at Ohio State University, Columbus
