Thanks a Lot, Emily Post!

For a fun, non-didactic book about etiquette for children, turn to Jennifer LaRue Huget’s book, Thanks a Lot, Emily Post!  The rules of proper behaviour cramp the style of an unruly family, and it’s all because Mother brought home the Emily Post book. Illustrations by Alexandra Boiger bring characters from the past (Emily Post’s own Mrs. Worldly, Mrs. Wellborn, Mr. Kindhart and Mrs. Toplofty) and present together in a playful way, and the back matter gives a fact filled biography of Emily Post.
