Darling Child, My aim is to help you make the most of those five or six precious years in which you may think and act as if you were the very center of the universe. The only sad thing is that in the end you will lose out, and begin to grow into a reasonably responsible and co-operative person. But meanwhile, if you follow these simple rules, you can have a really great time... In all the plethora of information, help and advice given out to parents and grandparents, little is available for the family member often hardest hit by the complications of family life - the child. Professor Oliver has written an inspired manual de style, in the tradition of Machiavelli's The Prince. The text is humorous, wise and humane and the charming drawings complete a delightful book. It is a perfect gift. But as the wise professor cautions, parents might be a little shocked by what the book suggests. Indeed, it might be best to keep your copy well away from parents, who should be left to nurse the illusion that it is they who call the shots.
