    " Mine was an audiobook selection read by the wonderful Martin Jarvis and Rosamund Ayres. The verse is of course wonderful word play and the come-uppances of those who do not toe the moral line delightfully extreme. It's also interesting to look back at what was considered important. "

    " odd but fun. however, i wouldn't read any of these to children. the english disposition for scaring good behavior into children doesn't suit me 'tall. but as an adult reading them, they are (as i said) odd but fun. "

    " Witty little verses. Fun to read aloud. "

    " Quentin Blake's new illustrations are a far cry from BTB's originals, but detract only slightly from what would otherwise be a five-star outing. "
