Sticky Ends

by Jeanne Willis, Tony Ross (Illustrator)
 

A riotous and anarchic collection of cautionary verses from the award-winning Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross, illustrated disturbingly throughout

Guess what I had for school dinner?
They said it was Dumplings and Stew,
It's odd because Stuart's gone missing
And so have the Dumpling Twins too.

Have you

Overview

A riotous and anarchic collection of cautionary verses from the award-winning Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross, illustrated disturbingly throughout

Guess what I had for school dinner?
They said it was Dumplings and Stew,
It's odd because Stuart's gone missing
And so have the Dumpling Twins too.

Have you heard the tale of Felicity Finch who was prone to pinch? Or the one about Vince the Mince, the vegetarian dog who took his sprouts far too seriously? In an off-beat mix between Shel Silverstein and Struwwelpeter, this hilarious collection offers a grisly mix of gruesome cautionary verses, in which assorted characters meet the stickiest of ends! Nasty tales include "Lardy Marge" (The moral of the story is go easy on the fat, or just like Marge you'll melt and you'll be licked up by the cat) and "Squiggle McSquirm" (Sqiggle McSquirm was a toffee-nosed worm, who hatched in a compost heap, he slithered away on a cabbage leaf sleigh, when his mother was fast asleep.)
