Little Kettle-Head

Classic Bannerman children's story, of a bad little girl who plays with fire and loses her head.

Little Kettle-Head

This is the original story written by the Scottish author, Helen Bannerman (1862-1946). The story was published in 1904.

Helen Bannerman lived much of her life in India with her husband who was an officer in the Indian Medical Service. It is that part of the world that is the setting for most of her stories, including Little Kettle-Head.

Almost Lost

Little Kettle-Head, at least in its original form, is almost impossible to find. Though less controversial than some of her other stories, the politically correct are bound to find something to complain about it.

This story is a delightful, though short. It has a point, but is not moralistic. And as all good stories should, it ends happily for those who have learned their lesson.
