Rollicking text and a mischievous crew of playful animal guests make for an irresistible first guide to manners.

Penguin is having a party, and his nine adorable animal guests aren't sure about their manners. When Lion is served cauliflower, he says, "I hate cauliflower. EW!" Is that right? No, he should say, "I'll try some. MMM, NOT BAD!" From one silly incident to another, Hippo, Elephant, et al learn where to put your napkin (not on your head), how to sip your milk (not spray it), and when to tell a joke (NOT when your mouth is full!). Proper Penguin's patience is sorely tried, but by the time they say good-bye, his young guests have even learned to say, "Thank you!" Is that right? Yes, that's right!
