In early 90s you could buy special children books for misbehaving kids in Russia.
This is an example of such a book. Kid, who is reading this book, is being promised many scary things to encounter if he doesn’t obey to mother or father. Here are some translations:
“You’ll fall deep inside a hole
if you don’t obey to your mom”
“If you plan not to listen to father
wild black cats would scratch your brother”
“If you decide not to clean you teeth
then prepare to meet a wild beast!”
“You haven’t cleaned up your room?
Then to ugly monks would come to you soon”
“If you cry each time you eager
Prepare to melt from the tears like piece of sugar”
“If you play during your meal each time
then you should know that spider would come”
“If you are greedy as old and don’t share balls
probably you would be eaten by wolves”
“You like to fight with your fellow-friends?
Then you’ll be bitten by different snakes!”
There were 200,000 copies sold, I don’t know if this a lot and don’t know if the books got the effect on naughty Russian kids of early 90s…
