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.

Synopsis

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.

Of Tony Ross: ‘I haven’t come across a child yet who isn’t enchanted by work.’ - Tony Bradman, Parents Magazine
