K-Gr 2–Lady Miss Penny, a fluffy-tailed canine with impeccable manners, visits all kinds of restaurants accompanied by her human girl Milady, and she is always on her best behavior. Even when she invites four of her animal friends to a nice restaurant, she watches her table manners. Her general admonishments apply to most of us, and readers will want to absorb the rules for eating out with friends, to walk inside, stay in your seat, and use the magic words, please and thank you. Less human rules will have readers giggling: don’t lick food off the floor, no barking, etc.
VERDICT A humorous look at good manners, this suggested general purchase provides cartoon art with pen and watercolor that captures expressions and the consequences of outrageous behavior from several perspectives during a chaotic restaurant visit.
