The tragic tale of Sally Platt, who liked to chat and chat and chat (on her mobile phone of course), and the dreadful fate of Little James, who just adored computer games, feature in this collection of Charlie Ottley's new cautionary tales for our times.

In this clever update of Hilaire Belloc's original Cautionary Verses, Charlie Ottley locates our Achilles' heel and goes for it with a tickling stick. Grumpy old men who go on about the modern world can bore us to tears - it's so much more fun with a light touch and a comic rhyme. From the dangers of skipping off school to over-dependence on TV soaps, these witty warnings are hugely enjoyable - all wonderfully illustrated with original drawings by Oliver Preston.
