Das Männlein Mittentzwei (1)

"Das Männlein Mittentzwei" geschrieben von Paul Alverdes und mit Bildern von "Beatrice Braun-Fock, ist für mich eines der schönsten Kinderbücher überhaupt. Es ist 1937 im "Albert Langen.Georg Müller" Verlag erschienen. Hier seht ihr zunächst einmal die wundervollen Farbillustrationen. Die zweifarbigen Textillustrationen kommen später nach. Das Buch umfängt 22 plus 1 Seite und hat das Format 18,5 cm x 21 cm.

This is such an outstanding collection of illustrations, the coulours and forms used are breathtaking.
The tree illustration one of the best illustrations that I have seen in a good while.
This collection that you are putting together is fantastic, we should attempt to set up an exhibition in each others country, what do you think?

This is such a great idea! I love everything that gives me a good reason to visit England again! And I have also some experiences in organising exhibitions - this is how I know that it normally causes a lot of trouble and unpaid work. What more can we ask for?
Honestly. I like the idea. But I think that my collection has to grow a bit.

These are beautiful. I wish I knew what the story was (sadly, I don't understand German).

Here is a really rough summary:

The story is all about a bad dwarf (sort of) who loves to destroy toys. And the children usually get blamed for it. One night two chlidren went out with all their broken toys to face him of what he had done. He can destroy things but he can`t look again at it. That brings him to tears and those tears can fix all the broken things back to new.
