Synopsis

Cautionary Tales for Boys and Girls by John Hay-Mackenzie

An illustrated children's book with a wicked twist that will make it just as appealing for adults, Cautionary Tales for Boys and Girls is the work of John Hay-Mackenzie. Twelve slightly deranged-looking soft toys have provided the inspiration for watercolour artworks by the author, and matching 'cautionary tales' that each have a moral or lesson, from obeying parents and following the rules for crossing roads, to eating well and caring for others. Why should you do as you are told? Does it really matter if you litter? Who cares if you're a spitter? Here lie the tales of twelve wicked boys and girls who found out - too late! John Hay-Mackenzie reveals their awful fates in his deliciously dark cautionary tales.
