"Good little girls ought not to make mouths at their teachers for every trifling offense. This retaliation should only be resorted to under particularly aggravated circumstances."

Evocative pictures too. Nice, even.
And you can't borrow it just yet because I've renewed the only copy in the system. I'm trying to memorise all the wisdom so I can pass it to my niece. No, her parents don't know.
