Project Description

Lady Lupin’s Book of Etiquette

by Babette Cole

“Now that you are growing up,” says Lady Lupin to her puppies, “it is time to learn about ETIQUETTE.”

Ever the aristocrat in breeding and manners, gentle deerhound Lady Lupin sets out to instruct her darling puppies in the art of social graces. She carefully advises them never to squabble over bones, never to bark with their mouths full, always to send thank-you notes, and never, ever to eat ice cream while wearing a veil! The pups are eager to learn and her efforts to civilize them are noble… but sometimes even the most dedicated teacher cannot predict the outcome.

In this hilarious tale, writer-illustrator Babette Cole uses her zany wit, a large measure of absurdity, and even a dash of bad manners to help young readers discover the fine art of etiquette. Cole’s whimsical full-color illustrations perfectly reflect the chaotic tone of this zany Miss Manners for the canine set, and the antics of her out-of-control puppies are sure to tickle children and parents alike.
