Introduction
to The Bad Child's Book of Beasts
by Hilaire Belloc

Do not as children badly bred,
Who eat like little Hogs,
And when they have to go to bed
Will whine like Puppy Dogs:

Who take their manners from the Ape,
Their habits from the Bear,
Indulge the loud unseemly jape,
And never brush their hair.

But so control your actions that
Your friends may all repeat.
"This child is dainty as the Cat,
And as the Owl discreet."


Hilaire Belloc
