In this new edition of the classic companion to Tales for the Perfect Child, Sergio Ruzzier lends his signature humor to Florence Parry Heide and Sylvia Worth Van Clief's delectably subversive fables.
Genevieve is careless.
Muriel is discontented.
Phoebe is always putting off until tomorrow what she should be doing today.
And Chester is the laziest turkey you ever heard of.
Caleb and Conrad, on the other hand, are polite and kind and thoughtful and gracious and truthful. But some good that does them!
If the morals you find in these pages aren't exactly, well, moraljust don't pay any attention to them!
