Synopsis

The Wicked Tricks of Till Owlyglass by Michael Rosen

The welcome return of one of Michael Rosen's favourite books! Till Owlyglass (Till Eulenspiegel) is a boy who was special from the day he was baptised three times. But not in a good way. Not in a way his parents liked. He was always in trouble for his rudeness and practical jokes, and grew up to be the most outrageous trickster in Germany. Everyone told stories about him ...and they still do five centuries later. In this wickedly funny book, Michael Rosen retells the best of these traditional German tales, with pictures by Fritz Wegner which are perfectly in the spirit of the prankster's wild tricks.

Reviews

Michael Rosen's retelling of these traditional German tales...will delight or perhaps outrage depending on your mind-set. -- The School Librarian The School Librarian
