A book of manners with flaps, changing-picture wheels, and humor!

Lucy is drinking a glass of cold, delicious milk, and her brother, Milo, wants one, too. “Milk!” he screams—but to no avail. No matter how much he carries on, Mommy will not give Milo milk . . . until Lucy tells him, “Use the special word.” Milo tries all the words he can think of, and when none of them works, he thinks of another one—“Please.” And Mommy brings him milk.

Told with great humor and lots of insight into young children, this book will make kids laugh out loud, and changing-picture wheels and lift-the-flaps add to the merriment. And it has a hilarious ending that will really ring true to parents and caregivers who get trapped by their own pronouncements. Learning to say “please” and “thank you” has never been such fun.
