Synopsis

Inspired by Hilaire Belloc's Cautionary Tales for Children, whimsical and well-observed precautionary tales to amuse grandparents and impart moral guidance
 
Many readers remember with pleasure Hilaire Belloc's humorous and piquant Cautionary Tales. Ever popular since publication in 1940, the moral poems were supposedly for children-but, with their satirical reflections on the state of the nation and the human condition, were also enjoyed by adults. Likewise, these poems for grandparents will also delight their grandchildren. Read about Matilda, who was too truthful to be successful in business, and John, who lost at conkers and gained his father some useful publicity. Whether you grew up reading Belloc or not, this compilation of wit in verse is guaranteed to leave you smiling-and may even teach you a valuable lesson or two.
