I was trying to get a feel for the vastness of the market involving books for children and ran across this interesting piece.
The original story said it is among books that "shouldn't exist", but I'm not so sure. Brecht wrote the stories and Grosz illustrated them. Personally, I love Brecht and the concepts seem interesting, but they appear to only be in German and are from the 1920s.
The blogger wrote a better description than I could, not having read them, but I was wondering if any of you know about these books and how I could get my hands on the stories.
Also, do any of you know any really unusual books for children that are not from our more gentle modern era and are designed to make kids ask questions that you would recommend?
**This is not a recommendation or endorsement of these books because I have not read them yet.

My friend's oma gave us a book of the Grimm Brother's Fairy Tales. They are the original not-so-nice versions of common fairy tales, ones where the kids get tossed in sacks if they misbehave. We just moved and I took a quick look around for it because I'm not entirely sure that is the name. If I find it I will let you know.
I would love to get a copy of the original Grimm Brother's. Wow. My kid would think I'm soooo nice after that, even when I tell him he needs to do chores.
