Celebrated artists Raschka and Radunsky join forces to give us all a valuable, riotous crash course in Table Manners.

Why is speaking with your mouth full a bad idea? Who is permitted to wave his napkin like a flag? What happens if you don’t chew your food? Two renowned artists, Vladimir Radunsky and Chris Raschka (and their alter egos, Dudunya and Chester), provide hilarious answers to these and other burning questions in Table Manners, the quintessential—and inimitable—guide to impeccable behavior at mealtime. A tongue-in-cheek "how-to" book, its topics include how to use a napkin, how to behave at a restaurant, the importance of chewing food properly, keeping one’s mouth shut while eating, and many more pearls of proper etiquette.
