This is the story that popularized the phrase "goody two-shoes", and it is one of those horrible morality tales for children where virtue is rewarded -- especially the kind of female virtue that is demure, long-suffering and harder-working, and that serves as childhood indoctrination. The kind of made-up, unrealistic, ideologically pure story that intensely Christian people or blinkered political pundits would hold up as evidence that their ideology is right. ( )
