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.
