A story from the German Ruhr region
Just as a dog sometimes feels the need to have a good scratch because its fur is itching, children also occasionally have the desire to drive their fellow human beings up the wall with pranks. And who didn’t cook up some nonsense or other themselves as a child - and then enjoy the fun?
So this story is also full of nonsense, but harmless nonsense as well as harmless people who do no harm to the world. It tells of a time that was very different from today, of people who thought very differently and also treated their fellow human beings very differently because of it.
It is a story of laughter and sometimes wistful memories of a Ruhr region that no longer exists in this form.

Hilariously funny, the more so because mostly true
Reviewed in Germany on 22 August 2022
This book will whisk many an adult back to the harum scarum days of their youth - and maybe give todays 12 year olds and older a few good ideas. The young creative mind can turn normal life into an exciting adventure, overcoming the limitations set by convention. A truly engaging exploration of the way these young people saw the world.
