Meet Ruby. She watches her little brother just like her mother asked her to and keeps right on watching while he turns the house upside down. Then there's Arthur. He listens to his mother and dresses like a perfect gentlemen until some conveniently spilled juice gives him the excuse he needs to slip into something more comfortable. Can any child be trusted to read about these seven perfect little monsters without trying anything equally naughty?

About the Author
Florence Parry Heide (1919–2011) was the author of more than 100 children’s books, including picture books, juvenile novels, two series of young adult mysteries, plays, songbooks, and poetry. She may be best remembered for her now-classic The Shrinking of Treehorn and its two sequels, illustrated by the great Edward Gorey. Florence grew up in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, married during World War Two, and spent her adult life in Kenosha, Wisconsin, with her husband and five children, all of whom grew up listening to the joyful sounds of an old typewriter.
