This book is an introduction to German for English–speaking children. It was aimed at well–to–do American children of the late 19th century. Even though nearly the entire book is in German, an English speaker can read the book cover–to–cover without any other reference work. This is a remarkable feat of authorship.

Louis: Nein, mein grünes Buch ist nicht so dick, wie Websters Wörterbuch.

Herr Meister: Ist Ihr grünes Buch dicker, als mein rotes Buch?

Louis: Ja, mein grünes Buch ist dicker, als Ihr rotes Buch.

Herr Meister: Gut, Louis. Mein rotes Buch ist dick; Ihr grünes Buch ist dicker, als mein rotes Buch; und Websters Wörterbuch ist das dickste Buch. Bellas Buch ist nicht so dick, wie Ihr Buch, Louis; es (= Bellas Buch) ist dünn.

Dick ist nicht dünn, Dünn ist nicht dick.

Herr Meister: Ist Annas Buch dünner, als Bellas Buch?

Louis: Nein, Herr Meister, Bellas Buch ist dünner.

Herr Meister: Welches Buch ist das dünnste, das grüne, das rote oder das gelbe?

Bella: Das gelbe Buch ist das dünnste.

Herr Meister: Das ist recht (= gut). Ihr Buch ist dünn; ich kann es (= Ihr Buch) mit zwei (= 2) Fingern halten; Websters Wörterbuch kann ich nicht mit zwei Fingern halt
