Used; Good Kornei Chukovsky was the father of modern Russian juvenile literature. His most famous work "Krokodil", illustrated by the artist RE-MI (Nikolai Remizov), originally appeared in the periodical Niva in 1917. Because of its satirical nature, the poem soon ran into problems with the censors and for a time was banned. This is an early Berlin edition by the Russian publishing house Epokha.
