 General Description:

More Goops and How Not to Be Them

An amusing way to share the world of manners (or lack thereof!) and dignified behavior with children.

This follow-up volume to the classic book "Goops and How to Be Them" contains forty-three poems, with illustrations, that explain bad and good behavior - using the amusing dark humor of the author.

"The Goops they lick their fingers and the Goops they lick their knives:
They spill their froth on the tablecloth - Oh, they lead disgusting lives!
The Goops they talk while eating, and loud and fast they chew;
And that is why I'm glad that I am not a Goop, are you?
"

For over 100 years the "Goops books" have delighted and amused both parents and children alike.

About the author - Frank Gelett Burgess was born in Boston in 1866. After getting a degree from M.I.T. in 1887, he moved to California to teach at the University of California. While there, and later in New York and Paris, he wrote many humorous novels, poems and stories, many of which are still in print, including Goops and How to Be Them, More Goops and How Not to Be Them, and The Purple Cow. Burgess died in 1951 in Carmel, CA.
