If you're smart, you'll read my book
Of modern children's etiquette.
If you don't, I'm sad to say -
Your life will be pathetiquette.

Meet Miss Information, the world's foremost expert on bad behavior, as she offers upside-down advice about the etiquette of absolutely everything. In twenty impishly off-center poems she states her views on such important topics as bathing (with and without gerbils), kissing (Komodo dragons as well as teachers), and eating.

Exuberant illustrations full of hilarious antics add to the humor of this mischievous spoof on bad behavior. These sly poems offer a child-friendly way to discuss what good behavior really should be like and are sure to become every child's essential guide to - a rollicking good time!

Meant for older children who understand the rules for manners already. My 4 year old was confused about the presentation of bad manners for different situations. While the book was Meant to be humorous, I spent more time explaining the "joke" to my little one than actually readying the book.
