Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To pick, or not to pick? This etiquette question and loads more are answered in fourteen hilarious spreads by fourteen talented, well-loved artists. Each spread illustrates a setting from kids' everyday lives (and the potential blunders they may commit there) and the text emphasizes the right behavior.

From the dinner table to the doctor's office, from the playground to the pool, this irreverent book will help kids navigate any social scenario with utmost grace. Or at least without too much embarrassment.

Review:

"This follow-up to Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road? (2006) and Knock Knock (2007) rounds up 14 of the usual suspects — the most gifted illustrators working today — and gives them one spread to explain the hows and whys of etiquette. Although a few contributors let their pedagogical instincts get the best of them, overall the results are top-notch. A few artists focus on a single type of troublesome behavior: Henry Cole empathetically depicts 'Don't stare,' acknowledging the heady temptations of 'the new kid,' 'funny outfits,' and 'people's bottoms.' Tao Nyeu constructs a wryly demure, woodland-themed sampler to admonish readers 'Please don't pick in public' — as in one's nose, wedgie, teeth, etc. Most spreads are dedicated to guidelines for various environments, such as the cafeteria (Lynn Munsinger lets loose with an endearing cast of pigs), bus, playground, or doctor's office ('Don't X-ray your little brother,' notes Sophie Blackall, in a spread that makes the most of her creepy aesthetic). If there's a first among equals, it's Tedd Arnold, who uses the 'The All-Alien Slimeball Championship' to teach the essentials of sportsmanship. Nuff said. Ages 5 — 8. (Feb.)"
