A hilarious look at good (and bad) behavior!

Based on Emily Post's bestselling etiquette book, published in 1922, here's an uproarious picture book that takes rules about behavior and turns them upside down. When Mother brings home Post's big blue book--it's all about minding your manners--there sure are a lot of new rules to follow: No slumping in chairs, no leaning on your elbows at the table, no shouting at the top of your lungs. Mother is delighted, but the kids are not. What they need is a clever plan to get rid of that pesky book once and for all. But how? Turns out the answer's easy--they just have to play by the rules.

With actual quotes and characters from Post's book woven into the story, here's an uproarious look at being on your best behavior . . . and on your worst!
