9780763629335: Stoo Hample's Book of Bad Manners

From the sultan of silly comes a comical, kid-friendly guide to avoiding naughty behavior.

The Toy Hog. The Blabbermouth. The Food Face, the Belcher, and (shudder) the Nose Picker. They're all here, and more - a veritable rogues' gallery of the rudest, crudest, meanest manners found wherever children slurp, grab, desert the table, or cut in line. With his trademark retro artwork and hilarious running commentary, Stoo Hample teaches children good manners by example - of what not to do - and bolsters his case with a final broad hint that the reader who fails to take heed may soon be the star of a book just like this one.

About the Author:

Stoo Hample is the author-illustrator of THE SILLY BOOK, first published to great acclaim in 1961 and reissued by Candlewick Press in 2004, to still more acclaim. I WILL KISS YOU (LOTS & LOTS & LOTS!) followed in 2006. He lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5–Accompanying each category of rude child (Theyre enormously foul,/Crude, rude, loud, and mean–/The worst-mannered kids/That youve ever seen!) are exuberant line drawings of the malefactor at work and a small self-portrait of the artist offering a running commentary. The title of each poem, Lousy Listener, Belcher, etc., is hand-lettered in an appropriate wanted-poster style. The child appeal in this assortment of ill-mannered kids is undeniable: This angel-faced girl/Thinks its funny and smart/To smile and secretly/Fluff out a fart. Hamples brats belong on the shelves with William E. Coles Beastly Boys and Ghastly Girls (Random, 1977), and Jovial Bob Stines Dont Stand in the Soup (Bantam, 1982). Miss Manners may not be amused, but most young readers will be.–Kathleen Whalin, York Public Library, ME
