Harry Graham was an English writer of light verse, popular fiction, and history. He is best remembered for his grotesque and humorous verses, which parody the children’s cautionary verses of his day. His most successful work was his series of hilariously cruel Ruthless Rhymes, first published in 1898 under the pseudonym Col. D. Streamer.
Billy, in one of his nice new sashes,
Fell in the fire and was burned to ashes;
Now, although the room grows chilly,
I haven't the heart to poke poor Billy.

I don't consider this book good literature.
Patrick McManus is at the top of my wish list for fun.
The Narrator did a fine job - with a disappointing book
I regret this purchase - including anyone knowing that I downloaded it.
Sure wish I had discovered the book was returnable before it was too late to GIVE IT BACK!! I like absurd, off-the-wall humor, but the book is not like the preview. I'm ashamed I fell for this one...
