    DescriptionFrom bestselling revolting reference expert Mitchell Symons comes this wickedly funny modern take on Hilaire Belloc's Cautionary Verses. Meet a true rogue's gallery of horrid kids who hit the skids. Callum: who was a dreadful bully until he received his come-uppance; Tiffany: who couldn't put down her mobile phone and died a horrible death; Bill: whose ability to fart ended in tears and Chloe: whose determination to have the most Facebook friends meant she lost her real ones.

    Review quote
    "These poems will have you laughing out loud, just before you pause and think, "is Mitchell Symons writing about me?" Ideal for reading aloud at parties and family gatherings when the not-so-young may appreciate the humour even more than the children! Absolutely hilarious!" Carousel
