Sticky Ends

By Jeanne Willis
Illustrated by Tony Ross

A riotous and anarchic collection of cautionary verses from the award-winning Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross, gloriously illustrated in full colour throughout.

Have you heard the tale of Felicity Finch who was prone to pinch? Or the one about Vince the Mince, the vegetarian dog who took his sprouts far too seriously... This hilarious collection offers a grisly mix of gruesome cautionary verses, in which assorted characters meet the stickiest of ends!

  • Life sales for Willis/Ross collaborations are now over two million copies.
  • "The king of comic illustration meets the queen of witty verse." Front Row, R4, Children's Books of the Year
  • Peters Book of the Week: 'A hilarious collection of macabre rhymes with echoes of Roald Dahl. A must!'
