Naughtiest Children I Know




An A-Z of the 100 naughtiest children ever! From Untidy Amanda and Bad Boy Benjamin to Naughty Dan, Greedy George and Sulky Susan. They're all inside, so open up and see if there's a poem in here about you . . .As you read through this book you will realise what bad company some of these poets kept. There are many way of being extremely mischievous, and these poems will probably give a few extra ideas besides!

There is a poem in here for every misdemeanour know to man, from traditional poems such as Heinrich Hoffman's Shockheaded Peter and Hillaire Belloc's Cautionary Verse (and everyone knows what happened to Matilda!) to those by modern poets such as Colin West and Kit Wright. A deliciously wicked poetry book about all the things that we do in childhood at the risk of grown-up wrath. Not that we condone such dreadful behaviour . . .
