Ludwig Bechstein (1801-1860), chiefly remembered for his collections of fairytales and legends, also wrote this poem about an endearingly curmudgeonly fellow who is only made gloomier by clouds, sunshine, midges, dancing and birdsong. This new translation is by Julia Donaldson, with full-page illustrations for each line by Axel Scheffler, her collaborator on The Gruffalo. At the end of the book the full translation is printed facing the German original.
