The Journey to the Child of the Child - Die Fahrt zum Christkind is a kind of Christmas nursery game in book form, which first appeared in 1889. The author Julius Lohmeyer (1834-1903), a dedicated author of edifying children's books, chose to spice up the story of the children Fried and Liesel's Christmas musical journey, composed by Theodor Krause. The artist Viktor Paul Mohn (1842-1911) was given the task of illustrating the work with his pre-Art Nouveau style and is remembered today especially for illustrations for the brothers Grimm's fairy tales.
