Overview

This is the optional - and less expensive - Black and White version of The Bad Kids Book of Poems, containing 32 humorous, rhyming poems and 105 accompanying cartoons about kids who do things they shouldn't do, like being reckless, selfish, gluttonous, foolish, disrespectful, malicious, impulsive, lazy, stupid, dishonest, disobedient, petulant, unkind, irresponsible, unhygienic, imprudent, etc., and the unfortunate but darkly humorous consequences of such behavior. Especially since some of the kids in the poems end up maimed or dead and on account of the dark humor (although none of the cartoons are gory or morally offensive), parents might want to consider whether this book is appropriate for their very young children, especially if they are under the age of about 7 or 8. The target audience is kids from about 8 to 98 years old. Here are a few of the shorter poems, so you can get an idea:

Gossiping Gail -

Gail liked to gossip
Behind the others' backs;
But this made some girls angry;
One attacked her with an ax.

Ricky the Unsafe Rider -

Ricky used to ride his bike
Without reflectors on;
And now he rides a wheelchair,
Since both his legs are gone.

About the Author

Darrell Wright received his Licentiate in Philosophy, magnum cum laude from the Angelicum University in Rome and is Co-founder of the Knights of the Holy Rosary. He taught in various Catholic schools, and spent several years studying for the priesthood, then a number of years as a contemplative monk, at the end of which he was encouraged to seek God's will elsewhere on account of his politically incorrect beliefs re- allowing homosexuals into seminaries and religious communities, the bogus "War on Terror" based on the 911 false flag black operation, being an admirer of Dr E Michael Jones and "Culture Wars" magazine, and, well....you get the idea. His other publications include "The Revelations of St Bridget and Church Reform"; "Faith and Reason in St Thomas Aquinas According to Etienne Gilson: An Introduction to Christian Philosophy"; "Titanic II: The Diary of Rose Dawson," a screenplay with a Catholic theme; a survivalist/"doomsday prepper" book; as well as numerous Catholic Classics, especially by the saints, which he has translated, revised and/or edited, all available on Amazon (search "darrell wright"). He presently lives on a creek in the beautiful Gold Country in CA with his 91 year old mother and is hoping, God willing, to find a traditional Catholic soul mate who ideally is even a like-minded "conspiracy theorist" -- or at least can put up with one.

"If you want to know who rules over you, just ask yourself whom you're not allowed to criticize."
