James Venn is a Canadian author, in his mid thirties. He livies in Toronto, and is a full time teacher. "Johnny and the Seven Teddy Bears of Sin" is his first published work.
Johnny Meryevan has been left in his elderly grandfather's household in Victorian London. To terrify the little boy into quiet behavior, his grandfather warns Johnny about the Seven Teddy Bears of Sin. His plan backfires. Johnny sets out to defeat these terrifying monsters, and the teddy bears are only too pleased to take up the challenge.
The results? A comic romp through the serious business of childhood: governesses, cakes, cabs, toast, tea, goldfish, nutcrackers, attics, bordellos, bears and temptations abounding.
The definitive update of medieval morality verse.
