A couple of posts last year have highlighted rhymed verse. Here's another: Struwwelpeter: The Story of the Thumb Sucker with a fabulous Tom Waites track and the voice of Donovan Christian-Cary. Warnings by parents to children are, to my certain knowledge, often ignored by their offspring. They should ignore mummy or daddy's intructions at their peril. Take the simple directive not to suck one's thumb. Because "the Great Tall Tailor always comes to little boys who suck their thumbs." The problem with youth today solved in a couple of snips. Chris Sayer, Jason Arber, Alex Amelines and James Wignall from Wyld Stallyons made the short for Bob Staake. They're right, you know, children should listen.
