“Just like German fairy tales, German proverbs are often phrased as moral lessons, reminders of the values important in the culture. A German proverb often says more than a thick book or a long lecture. German proverbs have always been philosophical, catechism for everyday life,” according to author Lynn Hattery-Beyer.
The book’s cover is German folk art, with reproductions of wood blocks by Albrecht (Albert) Durer inside.
