The Little Brute family, a family of creatures known for their messy appearance, impoliteness, and atrocious table manners, suddenly changes their ways. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave

They eat sand and gravel for breakfast and a stew of sticks and stones for dinner. No one says "please" or "thank you." Instead, they kick and yell and punch and shove. Then one day everything changes, when Baby Brute happens upon "a little wandering lost good feeling in a field of daisies." When he brings it home in his pocket, nothing is ever the same for the Little Brute Family.

& Taylor

Members of the Brute family, who live on a diet of stick and stone stew, suddenly find their lives changed for the better.
