Little Daffydowndilly

The story is about a little boy who only likes to do things that are agreeable to him, and dislikes work of any kind. His mother has indulged her son to this end, and when he finds himself old enough to attend school, he finds the schoolmaster to be unreasonable in his expectations and believes him to be overly stern. As the story unfolds, Little Daffydowndilly learns a lot about himself and his schoolmaster.
