|Summary, etc.:||Evie and Simon always mind their manners, but their father has a lot to learn before a surprise dinner guest arrives.|
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2014 March #2
Evie and Simon are very polite children who always mind their manners, but their father is another story. Every night they must remind him to not talk with his mouth full, to use a napkin, and to not slurp the soup. Once they think they've taught him everything, they invite a special guest to dinner, only to discover that their work has just begun. Readers will love the reversed roles in this story. The father is a comical mess, while Evie and Simon are perfect and patient. Even the dog gets in on the action, and readers will love seeing him in every picture. The retro-style illustrations will appeal to readers and make the action even more absurd. The importance of table manners is well presented without being heavy-handed, and hopefully readers will take away a few tips. Pair this book with Vladimir Radunsky and Chris Raschka's Table Manners (2001) and Judy Sierra's Mind Your Manners, B. B. Wolf (2007) for a lesson on manners that will elicit plenty of laughter.
