The Lovereading4Kids comment
Age 7+. Twenty six fabulously funny modern cautionary tales are wittily illustrated by Tony Ross in this vivid and entertaining collection. The sticky ends of the title bring delightful surprises to verses about the truly disgusting nature of school dinners, the fate of Felicity Finch, a little girl who likes to pinch, or Icy Clare who delights in going everywhere in her underwear. Perfect for reading aloud, the richly imagined and brilliantly illustrated retribution that befalls such characters will delight all who hear these verses.
Sticky Ends by Jeanne Willis
Have you heard the tale of Felicity Finch who was prone to pinch? Or the one about Vince the Mince, the vegetarian dog who took his sprouts far too seriously...This hilarious collection offers a grisly mix of gruesome cautionary verses, in which assorted characters meet the stickiest of ends.
‘The best, and the most fun, book of cautionary verse since Dahl - and before that Belloc.’ Wendy Cooling, Children’s Book Expert
‘A dream team of writer and illustrator!’ The Times
'Another perfect collaboration between Willis and Ross, whose ability to make children laugh simply can’t be bettered.' Daily Mail
Of Tony Ross: ‘I haven’t come across a child yet who isn’t enchanted by work.’ - Tony Bradman, Parents Magazine
‘As soon as you see the name Tony Ross on the cover of a book, you know you are in for a treat.’ - Books for Children
