Title sounds scary, doesn't it! Apologies if it has been mentioned already but this book is brilliant - came across it in a shop today and bought it even though ds is way too old for it!

Looks good - if your DS is a bit older, Hilaire Belloc's Cautionary Tales might be worth a look too :)

Or Strewelpeter.

Ds (2) got this for christmas, I think its great, I am not sure how much he fully understands it yet but I have had to read it to him a lot of times. I think it would be perfect for a 3/ 4 year old or even older

I love these ones: Usborne's Cautionary Tales. I think my favourite is probably 'Give that Back Jack'. Grin

IWMHB also has some interesting stuff about lying in particular, as well as stealing.

Thanks for the tip, I was wondering about getting I want my hat back! Ds likes this is not my hat so much I had gone looking to see if jon klassen had written any others.

Nobody has suggested Enid Blyton - although I am glad, because I always hated the way there was never any redemption in her stories - e.g. I still remember the one about the little boy who was cheeky and a Brownie put a spell on him so that when ever he was cheeky, his cheeks expanded - and the unspoken premise of the story was that the spell never went away - the Brownie never came back and undid it - so that he had to be meek and compliant for the rest of his life. Creepy stuff.

This book is great for lying (it centres around it, in fact) - although for older children/teenagers rather than really young ones. II loved it! www.amazon.co.uk/To-Be-Honest-ebook/dp/B0099NYLFY/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1358527135&sr=1-1&tag=mumsnet&ascsubtag=mnforum-21
