Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hilarious picture book about manners, turned upside down!

Why do animals get to misbehave, while humans have to act so prim and proper all the time? From the New York Times bestselling author comes a book about manners, all from the point-of-view of a little girl. In her refreshingly subversive world, monkeys must always use their fingers when they eat or get in trouble, elephants are encouraged to squirt and splatter everywhere, and pig parents ask their children to get muddy before they go to bed. Of course, if you're a pig, you smell, and thats not nice. Still, the girl can see that behaving like an animal could be fun. . . .

From the Hardcover edition.
