Elizabeth Semple ( - fl. 1816) and Elizabeth Sandham ( - fl. 1810)

Twenty-two moral stories for children. A collection of short stories about good little boys & girls and the rewards that come from good behavior, and naughty children who suffer the consequences of their actions.

"Arabella fancied there could be no pleasure in the world equal to that of listening to conversations in which she had no concern, peeping into her mamma's drawers and boxes, and asking impertinent questions. If a parcel was brought to the house, she had no rest till she had found out what was in it; and if her papa rung the bell, she would never quit the room till the servant came up, that she might hear what he wanted." - from "Curiosity"
