Good Advice

"Child! do not throw this book about;
Refrain from the unholy pleasure
Of cutting all the pictures out!
Preserve it as your chiefest treasure."
--Hilaire Belloc, Bad Child's Book of Beasts, dedication.

Hilaire Belloc is brilliant, and unfortunately little known among most people. Kudos on the inclusion.
