Consider, for example, a classic work beloved by generations of young readers, Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer:
Tom lies, steals, swears, smokes tobacco, plays hooky, and wins a Sunday school prize by fraud. He sneaks out of his house at night and runs away for days, driving his aunt Polly almost to despair. He ends up with a small fortune in gold, the admiration of the whole town, and the love of Becky Thatcher -- while his goody-goody brother Sid is last seen being literally kicked and cuffed out the door.
