The Bad Child's Book of Beasts is an 1896 children's book written by Hilaire Belloc. Illustrated by Basil Temple Blackwood, the superficially naive verses give tongue-in-cheek advice to children. In the book, the animals tend to be sage-like, and the humans dull and self-satisfied. Within the first three months of its publication, The Bad Child's Book of Beasts sold 4,000 copies.

This is a short but adorable book of children's poetry that is whimsically illustrated and brilliantly written. It is worth every penny! I read it aloud to my daughter and five minutes after we finished she was improvising her own poems. It was great! Popular Categories. Teen and Young Adult.

Child! do not throw this book about; Refrain from the unholy pleasure Of cutting all the pictures out! Preserve it as your chiefest treasure. Child, have you never heard it said That you are heir to all the ages?

Child! do not throw this book about; Refrain from the unholy pleasure Of cutting all the pictures out! Preserve it as your chiefest treasure. Child, have you never heard it said That you are heir to all the ages? Why, then, your hands were never made To tear these beautiful thick pages! Your little hands were made to take The better things and leave the worse ones. They also may be used to shake The Massive Paws of Elder Persons. And when your prayers complete the day, Darling, your little tiny hands Were also made, I think, to pray For men that lose their fairylands.

Holds interest until one finds that this version (the illustrated one) is only 93% complete and the very last page or two are missing. Thus, it becomes somewhat of a disappointment. We all like to know the end of the story.

I loved this when I was a child and enjoyed every page when re-reading it. The poems are delightful and short enough to maintain a child's interest.
