Tales for the Perfect Child

About the Book

Tales for the Perfect Child

Sergio Ruzzier brings his mischievous touch to a timeless favorite by Florence Parry Heide, beloved author of THE SHRINKING OF TREEHORN. This delightful new edition includes one never-before-published story.

Ruby is reliable (kinda).
Arthur is careful (sorta).
Harry eats his carrots (though it depends on what you mean by “eat”).
And just like all perfect children, Gloria helps her mother (well, that might be an exaggeration).

As the eight deliciously wicked tales featured in this hilarious chapter book prove, it’s perfectly nice to be a perfect child --- but where’s the fun in that?
