Synopsis

Cautionary Verses Omnibus Edition by Hilaire Belloc

The Chief Defect of Henry King was chewing little bits of String. At last he swallowed some which tied itself in ugly Knots inside...A much-loved classic for children and adults alike since its first publication in 1939, this collection of poems is a truly unforgettable book of moral instruction. Take heed from the lessons learnt by Matilda, Who told lies and was Burned to Death, Jim, Who ran away from his nurse wand was eaten by a Lion, and Rebecca, Who slammed doors for Fun and Perished Miserably...

About the Author

Hilaire Belloc was born in France and educated at Newman's Oratory School and at Balliol College, Oxford. From 1906 to 1910 he was Liberal MP for Salford and literary editor of the Morning Post. As well as writing books of verse and novels, he also wrote on religious, social and political topics. He was an early 20th Century Anglo-French writer and historian who became a naturalised British subject in 1902. He was one of the most prolific writers in England during the early twentieth century. He is most notable for his Roman Catholic faith, which had an impact on most of his writing.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
