Happy tale that moves quickly and maintains interest.

This would deserve five stars from its target audience. The translation is wonderfully done and even adds its own character as an observer from outside of the German setting.
Unfortunately it has not been translated into English, but American. For British readers this is constantly unsettling. American novels speak appropriately in their own tongue but, like US tourists of old, this loses its charm outside its homeland.
