    Amazon Review

    When Babette Cole gets her teeth into a topic, you just know the result is going to be something special--the woman who brought us Mummy Laid an Egg, Hair in Funny Places, and the adorable TrueLove this time tackles manners in the most unusual and outrageous fashion.

    Take one aristocratic deerhound (complete with tiara) and watch as she attempts to teach her rabble-rousing, and frankly rather motley brood of boisterous pups a lesson or two in good manners. In true Cole style, the pictures speak louder than the words, and the common-sense advice of the text is counteracted by the outrageous reactions of the out-of-control pups in the illustrations.

    Children will adore this unusual look at etiquette, and will enjoy searching the pictures for images of irreverent behaviour, while grown-ups will undoubtedly appreciate the subtle (and often not so subtle) wit of Babette Cole's slightly manic illustration. (Age 3 and over.) --Susan Harrison

    Product Description

    A rather posh deerhound, Lady Lupin, sets out to instruct her darling puppies in socially acceptable behaviour. She shows them which knife and fork to use, never to bark with their mouths full and always to send thank you notes. In this hilarious tale, bestselling writer-illustrator Babette Cole uses her unique brand of offbeat humour and irresistible illustrations to help young readers discover the art of good manners.

    This colour children's picture book is designed to be viewed in double-page spreads and is best read on a tablet device in landscape orientation.

    As a newcomer to Babette Cole, I did not know what to expect. However, I do share my life with 2 Deerhounds, and was soon chortling and chuckling as I worked my way through the pages with Babette's incomparable drawings and amusing observations on "manners" and etiquette, as seen through canine eyes.
    This is a "must" for every dog lover and is guaranteed to cheer you up when you're feeling low. Images that will stay with me forever include "don't bark with your mouth full" and "never eat ice cream while wearing a veil".

    Babette Cole captures the true essence of Deerhounds in this hilarious book. The only complaint I have - why isn't it twice as long?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Deerhound Lovers Love Babette Cole! 24 Oct 2003
    By Cate F. - Published on
    Babette Cole perfectly captures the hilarious side of Scottish Deerhounds. They seem so calm and dignified in public but their human companions know & love the wild side shown in this book. I often read this book aloud to my naughty youngest hound, Oscar. Sad to say, he still hasn't learned the lessons so ably put forth by Lady Lupin. The fact that he once tried to read the book gave me hope until I discovered that he was really only looking for a snack.

    This is a very cute, funny book. Lady Lupin explains principals of etiquette to her puppies. Her daughter Lobelia breaks them all. The ilustrations are fun. The story is fun. The advice is, mostly, very sound. I hope the little girl I bought it for likes it as much as I do.
