Best German literature in the quality of Swiss chocolate. From this marvellous tale collection my favourite is “Spiegel das Kätzchen”. A cat named Spiegel lands in the street, when his mistress dies. Which means an empty stomach every day. The smart animal has to make a diabolic pact like in Goethe’s Faust for to survive. Once well-nourished and fat, he cocks a snook at the devil who wants to butcher him. Read it! Just thirty pages.

Vorrede 1. Band: Seldwyla bedeutet nach der älteren Sprache einen wonnigen und sonnigen Ort, und so ist auch in der Tat die kleine Stadt dieses Namens gelegen irgendwo in der Schweiz.
Pankraz, der Schmoller: Auf einem stillen Seitenplätzchen, nahe an der Stadtmauer, lebte die Witwe eines Seldwylers, der schon lange fertig geworden und unter dem Boden lag.
Romeo und Julia auf dem Dorfe: Diese Geschichte zu erzählen würde eine müssige Nachahmung sein, wenn sie nicht auf einem wirklichen Vorfall beruhte, zum Beweise, wie tief im Menschenleben jede jener Fabeln wurzelt, auf welche ide grossen alten Werke gebaut sind.
Frau Regel Amrain und ihr Jüngster: Regula Amrain war die Frau eines abwesenden Seldwylers; dieser hatte einen grossen Steinbruch hinter dem Städtchen besessen und seine Zeitlang ausgebeutet und zwar auf Seldwyler Art.
Die drei gerechten Kammacher: Die Leute von Seldwyla haben bewiesen, dass eine ganze Stadt von Ungerechten oder Leichtsinnigen zur Not fortbestehen kann im Wechsel der Zeiten und des Verkehrs; die drei Kammacher aber, dass nicht drei Gerechte lang unter einem Dache leben können, ohne sich in die Haare zu geraten.
