Read full description of the books:
- Hello Manny, do you recognize me?
- No, who are you?
- Come on.
- No idea.
- I'm your subconscious.
- Oh... right. It's true, you did look familiar. Well, what've you been doing?
- Thinking about sex, mostly. Let me tell you my latest fantasy. There's--
- Subconscious, this is not an appropriate time! People are listening! Have you no sense of shame?
- Okay... I guess you wouldn't. So, uh, what else have you been doing? Read anything recently?
- Same as you, Manny, same as you.
- What did you think of Die kleine Hexe?
- What did you think of it, Manny?
- Oh, I don't know. It improved my German. I thought it was a bit girly, to be honest.
- But what did you think it was about?
- Nothing much. A cute story about a kind witch who decides to be different and go around helping people.
- Honestly, Manny. You really thought that was what it was about?
- Well, what else? And don't say sex.
- I wasn't going to.
- Alright, Subconscious, what's your theory then? Since you're obviously dying to tell me.
- It's about the Third Reich.
- Jesus Christ, Subby, every time we read a book in German you tell me it's about the Third Reich. You said the German translation of The Little Prince was about the Third Reich.
- But this one really is!
- Look, 45 people on Goodreads have reviewed this book, and not one of them has even hinted at connections with the Third Reich.
- Okay, let's walk you through it. The heroine of the book is a witch who lives with a raven called Abraxas. Now who is he?
- Her familiar?
- Yes, yes, but what does he represent? Think Pinocchio, Manny.
- Oh, er, right. Jiminy Cricket. The raven's always giving her moral advice. He's her conscience.
- Pretty slow today, Manny. And what happens when the witch takes her conscience's advice?
- Well... she gets in a lot of trouble. It turns out that in witch society you're supposed to be evil. So someone who acts morally is in fact a very bad witch.
- Now Manny, where and when was this book written?
- Germany, 1957.
- And had anything recently happened there that might remind you of the witch society?
- Ah... well... look, I see where you're going, but I don't buy it. Too much of a stretch.
- Have it your own way, Manny, have it your own way. I can show you the facts, but I can't make you believe them.
- Look, Subconscious, can we talk about something else?
- Absolutely! Let's get back to my fantasy. There's these two hot girls...

Read information about the authorOtfried Preußler (sometimes spelled as Otfried Preussler) was a German children's books author. His best-known works are The Robber Hotzenplotz and The Satanic Mill (Krabat).
He won the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis in 1972 for Krabat.
He has sold roughly 50 million copies worldwide.
He was born in Liberec (German: Reichenberg), Czechoslovakia. His forefathers had lived in this area since the 15th century, working in the glass industry. His parents were teachers. After he graduated school in 1942, in the midst of World War II, he was drafted into the Wehrmacht Heer. Although he survived the military action on the Eastern Front, he was taken prisoner as a 21-year-old lieutenant in 1944. He spent the next five years in various POW camps in the Tatar Republic.
After his release in June 1949, he was lucky to find his displaced relatives and his fiancée, Annelies Kind in the Bavarian town of Rosenheim. They celebrated their wedding that same year.
Between 1953 and 1970 he was initially a primary school teacher, then a school principal in Rosenheim. There his talents as a storyteller and illustrator were put to good use, and often the stories he told the children would later be written down and published.
Preußler died on February 18, 2013 in Prien, Chiemsee.
