Never Tease a Weasel

Front Cover
Random House Children's Books, 2011 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
7 Reviews
A funny, finger-wagging rhyme with some very good advice: never tease a weasel, because teasing isn't nice! Rather, kids should do nice things for animals, such as bake a drake a cake, or give a mule a pool, and much more. Long out of print, this new edition of Never Tease a Weasel with art by the great New Yorker cartoonist George Booth will surely please a weasel, and everyone else who reads it!

From the Hardcover edition.
