Shelves: satire
I first discovered this book amongst my parent's books at the age of about 8. I was attracted by the title, what nosy child wouldn't be! The memory of the book stayed with me for many years until a friend sourced a second hand copy for me as a birthday present. After all these years it still delights me.

The book consists of a series of conversations between a 1930's middle class parent and their horrid precocious child. The child invariably lays bare the pretensions of it's parent and exasperate
