From the Publisher:

“Matilda told such Dreadful Lies, / It made one Gasp and Stretch one’s Eyes; / Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth, Had Kept a Strict Regard for Truth, / Attempted to Believe Matilda: / The effort very nearly killed her... ” So begins Hilaire Belloc’s “Matilda,” one of the scores of poems in this wickedly entertaining collection.
