Summary
Having received an invitation to dine at their home, a family is shocked and amazed as they watch the Abbotts eat with the most atrocious manners they have ever seen, in a tale about the importance of having and always maintaining good manners.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Come not to the table without having read this book!

You Are Invited
What:
To share a meal
Where: The Abbotts’ house
When: As soon as you open this book

But watch out – the Abbotts and their dogs have absolutely atrocious table manners. They speak with their mouths full, complain about the food they are serving, and argue in front of the company. The Abbotts also violate some more obscure table-manner taboos, such as smelling their meat and staring what’s on the plate of a dinner companion.

With rules lifted in the vernacular from an early-nineteenthcentury primer (the full text of the rules is appended), and uproarious pictures that do most of the storytelling, this is a lively and wonderful celebration of good manners.
