The Wicked Tricks of Till Owlyglass

Author: Michael Rosen
Illustrator: Fritz Wegner
Publisher: Walker

The traditional stories about Till Eulenspiegel are set within a modern day framework about two boys on holiday in Germany, who hear the tales from an elderly man who has been asked to keep them out of mischief. As the stories unfold, and the reader gets to know the character of arch trickster Till, the comedy becomes richer. The humorous illustrations show the medieval European setting of the stories.
