Hilaire Belloc's misbehaving children suffer all manner of grisly ends in these cautionary tales that poke fun at the idea of improving children's morals through verse stories. Once heard, who can forget 'Henry King, Who chewed bits of String' or the unfortunate lies of Matilda? The wicked humour ensures that they will remain favourites throughout the generations. This new edition has been carefully typeset to remain faithful to the original, and includes all of Basil Blackwood's brilliant black and white illustrations.
