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."

Cute stories, but I was hoping for pictures in this one. A co-worker has an original book with the pictures that she has offered to let me see.
