One of the earliest children's picture books published in Germany, Slovenly Peter (sometimes called Shaggy Peter) was published in 1845 by Heinrich Hoffmann. Consisting of ten illustrated and rhyming stories about children, the book aims to teach young ones actual life lessons. Some of the stories in Slovenly Peter include "The Dreadful Story of the Matches," where a girl is killed after playing with matches, and "The Story of Johnny Head-in-Air," where a boy fails to look where he is walking and loses his favorite writing book in the river as a consequence.

This volume uses colorful images from Victorian-era illustrated books to provide a survey of their art and the rise of children's literature. Full color plates accent descriptions which include story plot summaries and commentary of the different works. In brief introductions to each of the main genres, the author refers to each genres influences, conventions, and aims of the artists. This book contains a selection of nineteenth-and very early twentieth-century American children's book images from the collection of Ellen and Arthur Linman; the vast majorities are taken from the publications of McLoughlin Brothers in New York, which was active in juvenile publishing from 1850 to 1905.
