Fred Rodrian and Werner Klemke: Hirsch Heinrich

A classic German children's book, originally published in 1960 by Kinderbuchverlag Berlin and now released in the 11th edition by Beltz & Gelberg. Text by editor and author Fred Rodrian, illustrations by famous Werner Klemke. I was lucky to find a first edition at a fleamarket in early summer. So this book lay on the shelf for half a year impatiently waiting for this year's Christmas season to be read out to the children. Here it is!
