In 1938 the book was declared illegal by the Nazis when it was listed in the ‘Liste des schädlichen und unerwünschten Schrifttums’ (List of Harmful and Undesirable Literature). The original was Winnie Winkle, an American comic character and from 3 September 1933 to 29 December 1935 a total of 121 of these comics were published under the German title ‘Kalle der Lausbuben-König in the periodical ‘Neue Jugend’.
