Summary
You all know...
"Do Your Ears Hang Low?"
and
"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,"
but what about
"Are You Quite Polite?"
and
Quiet in the Library" ?!

Songwriter and comedy writer extraordinaire Alan Katz has done it again! Turning his attention to the subject of good and bad manners, he has created a hilarious new guide to manners that kids will love to follow -- laughing all the way! With brilliantly funny pictures by illustrator and cartoonist David Catrow, this new collection promises hours of well-mannered silly dillyness for kids everywhere!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Like Abbott and Costello's comic synergy, the pairing of songwriter Katz's impolite songs and Catrow's cartoon illustrations is a match made in Chucklesville. The 14 silly dilly manners songs here are guaranteed to produce appreciative snorts and guffaws from kids. The song titles set up the farcical verse while the watercolor-and-colored-pencil caricatures take the hilarity over the top: Jimmy Picks Boogers (which Katz suggests should be sung to the tune of The Blue-Tail Fly ); Don't Chew Gum in the Classroom (sung to Take Me Out to the Ball Game ); Don't Talk with Beans in Your Mouth (sung to Michael, Row the Boat Ashore ). Adults may grimace at some of the rude details, but kids will chortle out loud and remember the manners messages precisely because they are so cleverly concocted. One copy won't be enough. For more fun with the subject, link this to David Greenberg's Don't Forget Your Etiquette (2006). --Julie Cummins Copyright 2006 Booklist"
