Baker & Taylor
Raised to be polite, eleven-year-old Simon is amazed when he visits his Aunt Mattie's and Uncle Phibert's farm where their version of good manners is interrupting, speaking your mind, and belching regularly and even the animals are rude, but Simon wonders what will occur when he unleashes his new good manners at home. Reprint.


Welcome to the world of
Mr. Rude, Mr. Crude, and Mr. Ugly!

Eleven-year-old Simon has been taught always to be polite, but in Aunt Mattie and Uncle Philbert's house, the rules are different. Even the animals -- including a loud-mouthed parrot and llmas named Mr. Rude, Mr. Crude, and Mr. Ugly -- say and do as they please. Aunt Mattie and Uncle Philbert tell Simon that good manners in their house mean thinking for yourself, saying what you think, interrupting -- and burping when you feel like it.

Simon is having a wonderful visit with his aunt and uncle, but what's going to happen when he tries out his new good manners at home?

& Taylor

Eleven-year-old Simon has been raised to be extremely well-behaved, but when he goes to visit his unconventional great-aunt he discovers that not everyone has the same ideas about good manners
