The Strange Child

E. T. A. Hoffmann

The Strange Child

Siblings Christlieb and Felix von Brakel live in the countryside with their parents. One day, their rich, worldly uncle Cyprianus comes to visit and brings them a »modern« mechanic toy from the city. He promises to provide them with a »suitable« private tutor so that they won’T »fall behind«. But the promised tutor, Master Tinte clad in black, turns out to be a sadist who hates children. And so they ask the magical »strange child«, whom they met on their walks in the woods, for help.
