Cautionary Tales for Boys and Girls
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.

About John Hay-Mackenzie
John Hay-Mackenzie was a theatre publicist for 25 years. In the past 10 years he has been a opera and classical music critic for Melbourne's Sunday Herald Sun and a producer of musicals. The appealing characters that a friend created out of old socks inspired John's drawings and this first book.
