Thumb Pickles and Other Cautionary Preserves


These are the stories you won’t believe and your parents don’t want you to believe. Klaus Von Fohn loved horseradish way too much; Signor Stupido pulled rude faces; Furgus OReilly never washed behind his ears, and because SOMEONE ran with scissors, the children of the village of Tenderville lost their thumbs. This collection of cautionary tales shows how ignoring good advice can land yourself in a real pickle.
