"This is a political satire which, by its very nature, demands both exaggeration and the inclusion of developments which are not based on real events....In a sense "Little Johhnie" is a children's book written for adults."
One of our dark days as an uncaring nation (Tampa incident) turned into a satire.
Think this might make a good bookring. A very slim book (should only cost 50c -$1 to mail).
A school burns down on the NSW side of the Murray River; the Principal of the Victorian school proposes the students come by boat each day to their school.....
Started the ring with lacrimosa (who works a few desks away). Please PM me to join.

This is a very good little satire. It took a contentious issue in recent Australian history and turned it into a childrens story!

Read during the monthly meet up in Melbourne tonight. Very funny, very witty. Simple idea talking about a much bigger issue.

Book passed on during meet up.

I read this during last night's meetup. It's a great little story with a timely message for all Australians. Little Johnny is a naughty boy!

Very concise story about what happens to society when compassion goes out the window. Extremely well written, covers all angles and was simply brilliant. Thanks for sharing this one with us Megan!

I have discovered that it's very difficult to read a book during meetup. Far too many distractions.

Read at tonight's Meetup. As has been stated before, it's very difficult to read a book at Meetup, but read it I did. You probably don't realise that am actually a huge 'Little Johnny' supporter and was deeply offended by this trashy little book (yeah, right). I'm sure that most BookCrossers would agree with me. Christopher Milne should be put on a leaky boat and towed out to sea (or maybe just cut loose in an inner tube on the River Murray) where his children should be thrown overboard.

On Tuesday 10 May 2005, when I was at Poterhouse Irish Pub for the Sydney BookCrossing meeting I read this book. Little Johnny and the Naughty Boat People is a short story.

I left this book at the meeting so another BookCrossing member could read it.

Read this at the Sydney meetup. Is Christopher Milne related to THE Christopher Milne? ie AA Milne's son?

Anyway a quick read, not too many distractions at meetup to get the story of the children who are desperate to go to school they want to go in a leaky boat....

Haven't seen many kids like that at my school. Vacation!

Anyway bad little johnnie!

Gave back to others at meetup and demanded they read it as well!

Thank you to Jess for organising and all the "meetupers" for reading this little gem. Sorry markmcg for offending you, I should have realised you would be a fan of Little Johnny! I did some research for you (bookfrog) to discover that the author is not related to A.A. Milne - in fact he's a Victorian - and he is pretty cute - check out his photo.
He has written lots of Naughty Children books which you can find out about here.

Ooh, a book that bites. Very good.

I wish I'd realised that "Naughty Stories for Good Boys and Girls" was at meetup last night, I would have grabbed it too.

I'll take this to the West Sydney meetup on 22/6/5, then back to fushmush in Brisbane to do the rounds there.

The Australians are claiming that this is a cheat book, but they obviously haven't got the hang of what a cheat book is, because they actually let you read it!

In sydney I had a book thrust at me, by servalan I think, that I promptly forgot about it and very nearly lost only to later find that it was ****THE CHEAT BOOK***** boo hiss. Naughty nzers.
Tonight freshly off the plane and train another book was thrust at me this time by the very lovely meganh. I promptly put this book into my pile which comprised several T shirts, two goody bags (one for mike), my carry on bag from the flight, a 3kg aussie post bag of books that I had posted to neesy, my "prize" from the lucky draw and several other books of the type that one picks up at bxing meetings.
And guess what? When meganh wanted the book back 10 minutes later (Indian giver) I couldn't find it. Just ask Mrs newk how long it takes me to lose things. Not very bloody long at all.
AND ***THEN*** I was told that it was an important book. Deja vu all over again.
To cut a long story short now that I have found the hotel and unpacked I have again located little john. reports will follow.
Megan it's a very nice hotel. No passion, no german speaking brazilians, no bed bugs, a tv...no afl tho..a bath. mmmmmmmmmm

This legitimate cheat book (as opposed to the legitimacy of the Tampa solution) has already climbed to #23 in the most travelled books - thanks to all who read and journalled.
Off to dolphin-au today.

Journal Entry 39 by jawin from Launceston, Tasmania Australia on Sunday, July 03, 2005

10 out of 10

I am a very slack Bookcrosser and only now getting around to journalling the catches I made at the ABC meeting last week. And this was definitely one of the highlights.

I read it in bewteen answering (?) questions at the Trivia night. (As I did not answer many questions, I had plenty of time. I am still smarting over being bested by the feathered fiend who was the only person who knew the name of Punch and Judy's dog. I mean, really. Who knows stuff like that? And more importantly, why?)

I laughed myself silly when I opened the mail today. A parcel actually arrived on Thursday with a stack of bills. I hate bills, so they and the parcel sat while I gathered enough patience to deal with them. And at the bottom of the pile was a book from whitequeen - The History of Punch and Judy! Now whitequeen has provided for my edification this useful and informative volume which I shall devour and commit to memory so such an outrage never happens again. I may also share it with our esteemed quizmaster, caldron, to ensure that in our next round he asks me some questions only I will know the answers to! Then I shall return it to whitequeen so she can hold it as independent arbiter when next there is a dispute about matters as important as those outlined herein.

Now back to Little Johnny, who is not one of my favourite people. In fact, in this house he is referred to as 'the lying rodent' usually accompanied by some less than ladylike epithets. The book, I am pleased to note, did not raise my blood pressure much - rather, it raised a few wry grins.

I'd never dreamed I would take part in Australian convention Cheatbook activities, but here I am. You never know what joining a bookring can lead to.
Good to see so many people seemingly enjoying it (and even little johnny supporters should appreciate this book and feel a bit of anger towards johnny for being so mean-spirited and for lying to them about what he knew to be otherwise).
Seeing that this book seems to be aimed at kids, I'll try it on my boys (Can't start too early with leftist indoctrination ;-)) before sending it on.

Finished this a few minutes after it arrived in the post yesterday. A simple but clever little reflection on one (of many) of John Howard's "creative" solutions.

Will send off to AS105008 via catsalive today.

Would any journallers here be interested in joining my bookring for the somewhat lengthier read Not Happy John! It's been going for about 15 months and I want to keep it moving until the next federal election!

Stay tuned for the book's climb up the ladder - currently at #16 in the most travelled stats (but it's not a competition!)
I am about to send my other copy of

This book thrust at me with instructions to read during brunch at the NZ Convention in Dunedin.
Enjoyed the convention more than the book but thought the message very well conveyed.
It is the old NIMBY syndrome at work with the addition of lies, lies and more lies really.
Each time I turned a page I expected to see the bit about what happened to those Tampa folk but that wasn't included. Didn't NZ come to the rescue for some of them?

An on-the-spot read during meet-up today. I didn't have any trouble concentrating on reading AND participating in the assorted BC business and conversations happening around me - I am a woman after all and can do more than one thing at a time. I did, however, have some difficulty making sure that no caffe latte came out my nose as I snorted and occasionally guffawed with laughter.

Thanks for sharing this one with me meganh, I'm honoured to have participated in this 'cheat book'.

Oh yes... and up yer bum, Johnny Shrub.

MeganH suggested we read this during today's meetup - and after hearing the snorts of laughter coming from lmn60 next to me I was looking forward to it. An enjoyably dark moral tale.

It's also been educational reading the other journal entries with the report on the actual "children overboard" incident, which I didn't know anything about until today.

Happy travels little cheat book!

Passed on at the Melbourne Bookcrossers' Sunday brunch today at Kaleidoscope Cafe, Brunswick.

I am here to sadly inform you all that there are worse cheats out there than us and we have dropped to #7 on the most travelled list! In the last month, 2 books have climbed from nowhere to #2 and #3. All journals for both books were done within a few days of each other – it looks like a Californian school teacher is using this for class book reviews. I can’t imagine 130 people reading the one copy within a couple of days of each other so they must be using one BCID for numerous copies.

The first four books are all dodgy which puts Skyring’s Convention Journal (which although it is not a published book, at least people have read and journalled it over a period of time) at #1!
Angel Fire East is definitely dodgy as we all know those kiwis are circulating a piece of cardboard after losing their cheat book.
Little Johnnie is the next book on the list so we are unofficially at #2.
Of course, this decision has been decided by an independent arbiter and is final!
LOL

thanks for sending this my way meganh, a very simple small book with such a huge meaning, I wonder has the 'big' Johnny been informed of this books existence? or was the publishing of this book paid for by the opposition?

PS. I also think it amazing that in the last 2 months I have read 3 books that were written by x Neighbours actors, so it seems that Neighbours is not only good for launching a singing career...

Mum read this book to me and my brother, We would like to go to school by boat like the kids in the book but Mum said it is easier to go on the bus since it is just up the road.

I like this book, Mum said I can now try to read it myself without her helping me.

I had the chance to read this at the Gold Coast meet up today. It was hard to concentrate and read at a meet up, so I feel I didn't give the book as much attention as I should have. Great little message in the book though. Thanks for sharing it at the meet up luckydipper.

a pretty crappy children's story, but funny for the adults who can pick up on the not-so-subtle similarities towards real life politics.

i hope this makes it to the top of the 'most journaled book' list!

This was thrust into my hands with the instruction to read and pass along the table at our Gold Coast BC meet, so I had no idea what I was reading... hee,hee,hee, it was very clever, witty and a wonderful poke at our politicians.

Thanks meganh for starting this book on it's way, and thanks to luckydipper for thrusting it upon me :)

if only this book could be given to the powers that be, maybe then they would realize how childish they really are. A good light, yet signifigant read.

Sorry! A late and out of order journal....what a well travelled book!..picked up at the brisbane meet and was returned to another bookcrosser. Didn't really like the main character, I sometimes found his egocentric ways a bit draining. It was a quick paced read and by the end I was cheering for the naughty little boat people :) Would suit children 6-13 years old. (he he!) Best wishes on your travels little book!

this book was spotted loitering at the recent Melbourne bookcrossing convention. It was looking to be picked up...for yet more journal entries.
I took down its number for later contact. Hence this entry. I am amazed that there are so few pickups from the convention. Or maybe everyone is keeping quiet about it.

An interesting PM I recently received via GoryDetails:-

Hello meganh,

I do some work on the BookCrossing support line, and recently I got an
issue from author Christopher Milne asking to get in touch with you. I
suggested that he join up so he could PM you directly, but he opted to have
me forward the message - so here it is!

Dear Elizabeth,

Thank you for your help. If you wouldn't mind passing on to Megan my message of thanks for her wonderful support of "Little Johnnie And The Naughty Boat People", I would be most grateful. My address is
christophermilne AT

This well travelled little book has returned home to me again. The era of Little Johnnie is over and perhaps this book can be retired now at #7 on the "most traveled books" list.
