The cameos of the ill-kempt Peter and his ilk are reminiscent of their near contemporaries, the unexpurgated Grimms Fairy Tales. Right and Wrong are clearly delineated, and Just Deserts are swift and sure.To our precariously balanced world, where shifting sensibilities lurchingly guide expression and conduct, Shock-Headed Peter is remnant of a past where things are tongue-in-cheek simple, where the recalcitrant child or cruel adult gets his or her comeuppance.

Better yet, theres no waiting for the wheels of justice to grind slowly: theres an exceedingly fine, excruciatingly apropos resolution in fast-forward time.Let the reader be forewarned - not for the delicately inclined - one will herein find the stories of:* Shock-Headed Peter (crusty kid incarnate)* Cruel Frederick (dog abuse bites the dust)* Harriet and the Matches (cat duo predicts pyromaniac girls demise)* The Inky Boys (bigoted taunters finally get the tint)* The Man That Went Out Shooting (twisted rabbit rampage)* Little Suck-A-Thumb (tailor with scissors-enough said)* Augustus, Who Would not Have Any Soup (the perils of the starvation diet)* Fidgety Philip (family quality time with an antsy pants)* Johnny Head-In-Air (A.D.D.
