Shock-headeed Peter from  The English Struwwelpeter (1860).


The text reads:

'Just look at him! There he stands,

With his nasty hair and hands.

See! His nails are never cut;

They are grim'd as black as soot;

And the sloven, I declare,

Never once has comb'd his hair;

Any thing to me is sweeter

Than to see Shock-headed Peter.'


The Artist: H Hoffmann
