Judith Rossell’s newest book, A Garden of Lilies, is a step inside Stella Montgomery’s world. It’s an illustrated alphabet of startling cautionary tales for the discerning child reader and avid Montgomery fan. A Garden of Lilies promises to transform any child into the very picture of Victorian decorum and grace.
Here’s a little snippet of Rossell’s Victorian advice:
“Children, listen and take heed,
As this little book you read.
Always do just as you should,
And be obedient and good.
Never headstrong, rude or proud,
Or lazy, careless, wild or loud.
All your evil ways amend,
Or you will meet a dreadful end.”
