Judith lives in Melbourne, Australia with a cat the size of a walrus.

WRITE A REVIEW

A surprising collection of children's stories

4

From the fabulous Judith Rossell a quirky collection of cautionary tales, each with a moral. These are a very Victorian concept, each child's experience, choices they make lead to an untimely end.
