Hilaire Belloc's famous Cautionary Verses was first published in 1907 and has remained a constant favourite amongst adults and children ever since. Witty, memorable and always instructive, many generations have laughed and learned with Matilda, who told such dreadful lies, Rebecca, who slammed doors for fun and Jim, who ran away from his Nurse, and was eaten by a Lion. Canongate is proud to bring Belloc's unique blend of rhyme and humour to a new listening audience with this first-ever audio production of Cautionary Verses.
