Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nina is a young girl of six who is often grumpy and impolite. Her lack of respect and compassion earns her a visit to the circus of Mr. Thankyouplease, where the clever ringmaster tries to teach Nina some good manners. This picture book makes a plea for respect and politeness and explains how kind words and thoughtful manners can make life more pleasant.

Review:

"Even the flash and dazzle of the circus can't mask the didactic message of this book about manners. In the opening scene, Winters outlines his six-year-old heroine's rude tendencies: 'Nina has a big mouth. She is often grumpy and talks back.' Sent outdoors by her mother, Nina promptly scolds her dog, dresses up as a knight, and discovers something interesting: a hole within a tree that contains a circus. Nina soon meets Thankyouplease, ringmaster of the Circus of Good Manners — a place with many delights to share, as long as one knows how to behave. After learning polite greetings, expressing gratitude for cotton candy and a successful stint on the trapeze, and asking a clown to ride his bicycle, Nina is a changed girl. When Nina's mother later asks if it's time to eat, Nina responds, 'Oh, yes, Mommy, please. I am sure that you've prepared a delicious dinner.' Working in deep reds and blues, Ortelli contributes sumptuous, whimsical paintings that make the circus feel like a magical place indeed — yet still not as magical as Nina's transformation. Ages 5 — up. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
