Come not to the table without having read this book!

You Are Invited
What:
To share a meal
Where: The Abbotts’ house
When: As soon as you open this book
But watch out – the Abbotts and their dogs have absolutely atrocious table manners. They speak with their mouths full, complain about the food they are serving, and argue in front of the company. The Abbotts also violate some more obscure table-manner taboos, such as smelling their meat and staring what’s on the plate of a dinner companion.
With rules lifted in the vernacular from an early-nineteenthcentury primer (the full text of the rules is appended), and uproarious pictures that do most of the storytelling, this is a lively and wonderful celebration of good manners.

About the Author:

Diane Goode is the Caldecott Honor-winning author and illustrator of many children’s books. She lives in Watchung, New Jersey.

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 2. Finger-wagging lines from a real 1802 primer (discussed and reproduced in full at book's end) provide the text of this irreverent guide to comportment, which is inherently charming in the dour tone of the advice: "Gnaw not bones at the table," "Spit not fourth any thing that is not convenient to be swallowed." But the real entertainment here comes from Caldecott Honor Book illustrator Goode's comic, pictorial narrative, in which the Abbotts, deceptively elegant hosts of a colonial-era dinner party, do precisely the opposite of everything the text prescribes. Reserve this for small groups or one-on-one sharing, as the old-fashioned locutions and spelling may need an adult's interpretation, and close-up views are required to fully appreciate the distinctions among the 10 double-page views of the banquet table. This etiquette manual's approach, far less earnest than that of Aliki's classic Manners (1990), puts the book in good company with Frank Gelett Burgess'turn-of-the-century Goops titles and Mark and Carolyn Buehners'It's a Spoon, Not a Shovel (1997).
