Please Say Please!

(2004)
A Picture Book by

 
This jovial guide to manners may not tame wild young beasts, but it will have preschoolers giggling to see bears throwing spoons, chimps grabbing, and giraffes burping at Penguin's house. Cuyler introduces basic party etiquette in a question-and-answer format: "When a hippo sits down for dinner, she should put her napkin on her head. HOW PRETTY! Is that right?" By the time the page is turned, the hippo is back on track: "No, that's wrong. When a hippo sits down for dinner, she should lay her napkin on her lap. THAT'S BETTER!" Poor Penguin, complete with a small, white bowtie for extra primness, must witness further behavioral atrocities, but by the conclusion the newly enlightened menagerie is merrily on its way--with a thank-you and a come back soon. Hillenbrand's simple, comical illustrations harness the messy chaos (and flying food) of childhood with bold black lines and plenty of good humor.
