    A short book of 'cautionary' poems for children, in the spirit of "Where the Sidewalk Ends". Some of the poems are better than others, for instance, "Matilda, Who told lies, and was Burned to Death."

    This knee slapper is almost 100 years old! Silly poems, rhyming couplets that mock Victorian poetry while telling of children who are punished horribly, eaten by lions and the like. Children will enjoy the ridiculousness, and enhance their vocabulary. Simple drawings by Edward Gorey are sure to please.

    Very Funny, Definitly not for small children!

Introduction

Upon being asked by a reader whether the verses contained in this book were true.

And is it true? It is not True.

And if it were it wouldn’t do,

For people such as me and you

Who pretty nearly all day long

Are doing something rather wrong.

Because if things were really so,

You would have perished long ago,

And I would not have lived to write
