Oh, How Sylvester Can Pester!

And Other Poems More or Less About Manners

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Rudeness may be on the rise, but this collection of read-aloud rhymes is just the solution to manners in need of mending! Author Robert Kinerk and illustrator Drazen Kozjan present a not-so-charming cast of characters—from Eleanor Ickity, who is served nothing that she likes to eat, to Sylvester, who can pester and pester and pester—using tongue-in-cheek humor to warn the ill-mannered about the consequences of their shameful behavior. Perfect for storytime or anytime, these playful poems beg to be read aloud again and again.

From Publishers Weekly

14 February 2011 – This neatly crafted collection of etiquette poems covers all the traditional juvenile sins: interrupting ("When someone is speaking—a grown-up, let's say—/ can you interrupt? In general, no way"); talking during movies ("There ought to be armies of top-notch, trained booers/ protesting those loudmouths disturbing us viewers"); and chewing with one's mouth full. Kozjan's manners-minders are both diverse and retro; there's a distinctly Hilary Knight feel to his bespectacled, necktie-wearing dads. Oddly, the real manners problems of the day—cellphones and texting—go unmentioned. Nevertheless, it's a sterling performance. Ages 4–8.
