The Awfulness of
Tom & Kate

The awful pranks of two terrible children. With 81 whimsical illustrations and 362 lines of humorous verse.


Tom and Kate seem so innocent, so deceptively charming, it is hard to believe that any child could be so mischievous. They roll pillbugs inside their music teacher’s recorder. They tuck a donkey inside father and mother’s bed.


A lavishly illustrated romp in rhyme which will delight young and old, mums and dads, aunts and uncles, and lovers of cats, donkeys, bugs and butterflies.
