Synopsis: Pompilius McGrath, Professor Etiquette, shares his insights into the art of good manners, from the proper usage of the toothpick to the things one should never do in public. By the author of La Bella Magellona.
From Publishers Weekly:
Children will be hard-pressed to know what to make of this arch discussion of manners, which is neither clearly a guide nor a sendup; even readers old enough to take in the fussy, sophisticated text--the Professor's vocabulary includes such advanced words as "erudite," "orgiastic" and "Carolingian"--may be nonplussed. Brief pointers on matters such as the importance of covering one's mouth during a yawn, yielding to ladies when entering or exiting the elevator and restraining one's gesticulations in the street are followed by a lengthy disquisition on the proper method of deploying a toothpick after dining on steak. De Mejo's primitive, somewhat static illustrations are a bit more accessible and more successfully satirical, but they cannot rescue the whole. Marc Brown and Steven Krensky's Perfect Pigs takes on the thorny subject of manners in a more straightforward, helpful (and infinitely funnier) way. Ages 4-up.
