Nancy Carlson is the author and illustrator of numerous picture books for children that feature the characters Loudmouth George, Harriet, Louanne, Pig, and Arnie. She is also the creator of Bunnies and Their Hobbies and Bunnies and Their Sports. Ms. Carlson lives in Minnesota.
PreS-Gr 1-This reverse etiquette book advises readers to never smile or share; to be a bully and whine; to tattle and be a poor sport. Each ``rule'' offers specific examples and is illustrated with brightly colored pictures. While children are always interested in stories showing the complications and potential pitfalls of social interactions, this plotless treatment is not likely to hold much appeal for them. Also, it's unfortunate that ``tattling'' is presented as undesirable. Granted, the examples given are minor ones involving friends who are misbehaving in not terribly destructive ways, but youngsters do need to know that there are situations in which ``telling'' is perfectly acceptable. Carlson's cartoon-style art is a little more crudely done here than in her previous books, and her figures are more angular, as they ``Push in front of the lunch line'' or ``Cheat at cards.''-Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL
