NEVER TALK TO STRANGERS by Irma Joyce and illustrated by George Buckett.

This is a reissue of a 1967 Golden Book.  Several libraries own the original as well as a 2000 edition.  Using a series of improbable scenarios, readers are advised to “never talk to strangers”.  strangersThe rhyme scheme, a little awkward to begin with, changes abruptly as the text offers situations where it is OK to speak to a stranger because your father/teacher/pal knows him.  This might fill a need where there is a teacher or parent demand for books on stranger danger, but this is an uninspired effort
