Precautionary Tales For Grandparents by James Muirden

Book Description

Many of us 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. Inspired by the prose and poetry of Belloc, James Muirden has penned these whimsical and well-observed Precautionary Tales to amuse grandparents, and perhaps their grandchildren too, and impart some moral guidance in today's world. 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.
