Struwwel Peter, we meet again

Here's the original, online.

(Obvious. Yah(!))

But I bet you didn't know there was a Mark Twain version. (I've been meaning to read more Twain, particularly the dark, later stuff. Anyone have any suggestions, eh?)

Twain was and is badass. Even when he's trivial he's great. I don't have any specific recommendations because i think it's all pretty wonderful in one way or another. (though if you want the directly philosophical, you could start with Letters From Earth (http://www.online-literature.com/twain/letters-from-the-earth/)
..
otherwise, remind me and i'll loan you my 'complete stories of'; it's pretty relentlessly enjoyable.
