Gemma bought me Struwwelpeter for Christmas. It a a short collection of cautionary tales for children.
Apparently in Germany there lives “the great, long, red-legg’d scissor-man” waiting to cut off the thumbs of little boys who suck on them.
So if you want to suck your thumb, find other countries in which to do so besides Germany.
