I was very young when I was given my first copy of this book and I have never managed to forget any of the characters or their crimes. I think most of us know of 'Matilda' who 'told such dreadful lies, it made one gasp and stretch ones eyes' but I fear that few know what befell 'Rebecca' who slammed doors or 'Jim' who ran away. More importantly our children are wholly unaware of the consequences of misbehaving. This is a wonderful book full of illustrations and verse designed to amuse and caution us all and leaves us with a moral tale of 'Charles', who shows us 'what Everybody might become by simply doing right.'
