• A 53rd Annual Society of Illustrators Exhibition Selection
“Echoing the concept behind Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road? (2006) and Knock, Knock! (2007), 14 rising and established illustrators present their takes on good—and, more interestingly, bad—etiquette…the illustrations in all their different and recognizable styles will amuse young audiences. Grades 2-4″.
“The advice in this compendium is completely straightforward…The delivery, however, is ridiculously, hilariously varied, as 14 illustrators each take a double-page spread and sprinkle those gentle aphorisms among madcap images…Good advice waggishly packaged and not completely tasteful—a winner.”
