Prince Crisps

Did I ever tell you about the sad book?

I had this book when I was a child about a brother and sister who meet a fairy.

The sister was nice and the brother was a right wee cunt.

To cut a long story short, the brother did something bad and the fairy turned his head into a donkey's head.

One of the drawings from the book showed the brother with his donkey head in his hands, weeping in shame and grief at his transformation.

His sister told the fairy (I think) to change him back. The fairy did, but not after he promised to be good.

The illustration of the boy in his condition, weeping, filled me with sorrow and a sympathy that I have held to this very day.
