About the Author:

Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D., codirector of The Emily Post Institute, Inc., developed a training program for etiquette educators and conducts children's etiquette workshops across the U.S. and overseas. Cindy is the coauthor of all the Emily Post children's books, with her sister-in-law, Peggy Post.



Steve Bjorkman has illustrated nearly one hundred picture books, including the New York Times bestseller Dirt on My Shirt by Jeff Foxworthy. He has also sold millions of greeting cards through Recycled Paper Greetings with his brother, Carl. Steve lives with his wife in Irvine, California.



Peggy Post, Emily Post’s great-granddaughter-in-law, is a director of The Emily Post Institute and the author of more than a dozen books. Peggy writes a monthly column in Good Housekeeping and an online wedding etiquette column for the New York Times.

From Booklist:

This helpful book opens with an apt quote from twentieth-century etiquette doyenne Emily Post (three generations up the family tree from the current authors): the purpose of table manners is “to avoid ugliness.” With that ruling principle in place, the writers get down to specifics in chapters on everyday table manners, special meals, table settings, tricky situations, meals as social events, and the host’s responsibilities. Rules are given with reasons rather than rigidity, which should make them easier to follow, and with the caveat that in certain circumstances (when choking, for example), diners should throw manners to the wind. Adding touches of wit, Björkman’s deft line drawings will appeal to middle-school students as well as younger children. Though perhaps most likely to be checked out by parents, this clearly written book offers practical advice that will help young people to feel more comfortable when dining with others and, of course, to avoid disgusting their companions. Grades 4-8. --Carolyn Phelan
