  This Book

  IS AFFECTIONATELY DEDICATED.

  MY DEAR CHILDREN--

  Yes--you are "dear," and will be very "dear" to your parents andfriends if you continue to be naughty. I dedicate this little book toyou because I have been told (though it is scarcely possible to believeit) that I was once a naughty child myself. If it be true, it was a_very_ long time ago; and then there were not nearly so many pretty"children's books" as there are now, so I had not the same chance asyou have of knowing how much best it is to be good. As soon as I foundthis out, I began to be good directly, and now I advise you all to dothe same.

  Whilst you are thinking how to manage it, you cannot do better thanread a few stories about Fairies, Pigmies, Witches, and such-likeinteresting creatures. In these stories you will find that the goodpeople always come out right at last, and the naughty people get intothe most disagreeable scrapes. Well, this is just the same withcreatures who are not Fairies nor Pigmies, nor anything of the sort. Soas soon as you have read these stories--or even before doing so if youcan--leave off being naughty and be good as fast as possible. By sodoing you will make everybody about you happy, will become more andmore happy yourselves, and will show that Fairy stories are really ofsome use. In this case we must have another book next year, andmeanwhile I remain your affectionate friend,

  E. H. KNATCHBULL-HUGESSEN.
