9781561452576: Lady Lupins Guide to Etiquette

Ever the aristocrat in breeding and manners, gentle deerhound Lady Lupin sets out to instruct her darling puppies in the art of social graces. She carefully advises them never to squabble over bones, never to bark with their mouths full, always to send thank-you notes, and never, ever to eat ice cream while wearing a veil!The pups are eager to learn and her efforts to civilize them are noble ... but sometimes even the most dedicated teacher cannot predict the outcome!In this hilarious tale, writer-illustrator Babette Cole uses her zany wit, a large measure of absurdity, and even a dash of bad manners to help young readers discover the fine art of etiquette. Cole's whimsical full-color illustrations perfectly reflect the chaotic tone of this zany Miss Manners for the canine set, and the antics of her out-of-control puppies are sure to tickle children and parents alike.

About the Author:

Babette Cole graduated from Canterbury College of Art in 1973 and has been a writer and illustrator ever since. She has produced animation storyboards for the BBC, illustrated numerous greetings cards and books by other authors, and has written and illustrated her own best-selling books. Babette won the Kurt Maschler Prize for DROP DEAD! She lives in Lincolnshire with a menagerie of animals.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-In the tradition of The Bad Good Manners Book (1996; o.p.) and Bad Habits! (1999, both Dial), Cole now writes about etiquette, using characters based on her own Scottish deerhounds. The aristocratic, jewel-and-tiara-wearing Lady Lupin decides to teach her puppies manners so that they will be loved by everyone and perhaps attract good mates. Children will relate to much of the behavior Lady Lupin warns against, such as not barking with one's mouth full or squabbling over bones. They may not so readily relate to other instruction, including how to eat oysters, snails, and lobster. And only a few will need to know their way around place settings with multiple utensils. But every child does need to know to hold doors open for others and to send thank-you notes. The ending is a bit of a surprise as Lady Lupin's daughter runs off with a short, bandanna-wearing dog and they have a litter of mixed-breed pups, which leads to the last piece of advice: "And above all, remain calm when faced with the unexpected!" Some of this story will go over children's heads and may not translate to their world. However, the lighthearted, whimsical illustrations of big, hairy dogs behaving badly will likely hold their attention.
