Can a little boy with impeccable etiquette and a very rude mule enjoy an afternoon together?

What would you do if a mule knocked on your door one day and said, "I've come for lunch"? You'd say, "Hello! Come in, Mule."

But what if the mule was very badly behaved?

This extremely funny story shows young readers exactly how to handle such a situation. Wonderfully bold and bright illustrations and a child-in-charge perspective make this a tale of manners that even the rudest will enjoy.
