This hilarious sequel to award-winning author Sesyle Joslin's What Do You Say, Dear? teaches you what to do when a female polar bear walks into your igloo in a white fur coat? (You help her off with it!) Or what you should do when you meet someone coming the other way on a circus tightrope? Granted, some of the scenarios are a bit unlikely--involving pirates, "cowboys and Indians," princesses, and Robin Hood--but these characters, humorously depicted by Maurice Sendak, are guaranteed to strike a chord with your children. Even though your child may not ever have the chance to pick up a lady's handkerchief or to walk quietly through a library after having been lassoed by a cowboy outlaw, this book, outlining "proper conduct for all occasions," is sure to elicit more than a few giggles. (Ages 4 to 8)
