From the Publisher:
What do you say when:
  • you bump into a crocodile on a crowded city street?

  • a nice gentleman introduces you to a baby elephant?

  • the Queen feeds you so much spaghetti that you don't fit in your chair anymore?

This is the funniest book of manners you'll ever read!

A humorous book about etiquette for very strange situations. Readers will learn the proper responses to such situations as: what to say when a brave knight saves you from a fierce dragoon, and how to respond when an evil cowboy asks, "Would you like me to shoot a hole in your head?" Humorous two-color illustrations accompany the text. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as one of the Best Illustrated Children's Books of 1958.


Kirkus Reviews
"Delightfully absurd situations and elegant and exceedingly funny illustrations. For this encyclopedia of manners, there is just one thing possible to say, and that is 'Thank you, thank you very much.'"
