An hilarious classic anthology of moral instruction introduced by Quentin Blake. If you are you prone to telling tales or running away then ignore these poems at your peril or you might suffer the same fate as Matilda, Who told lies and was Burned to Death or Jim, Who ran away from his nurse and was eaten by a Lion! First published over a hundred years ago, Hilaire Belloc's tongue-in-cheek poems of moral instruction for children, with amusing illustrations by B.T.B. and Quentin Blake, are as sharp, funny and memorable as ever.
