A sly rhyme about the pitfalls of being too bad – or good!
Quentin Fenton Herter III . . .
remembered always to say “Please,”
to wash behind his ears and knees.
He never ran but always walked,
and sat quite still when grown-ups talked.
BUT . . . Quentin Fenton has a shadow (named Quentin Fenton Herter Three!). Never good and always bad, this Quentin loves to make a mess, break rules, and boss his friends. How the two come to change their ways during a long, boring tea with “doilies, dust, and aged ones” aptly shows that no one is all good or bad – and makes a hilarious comedy of manners that is sure to delight good (and bad) children everywhere. Irresistibly illustrated by Giselle Potter with her characteristic wit and whimsy.
