review 1: Not a real big fan of books on manners when the characters are outlandish, boorish, buffoon caricatures. In this instance the child had to tell their oafish father about minding his manners. It was kind of silly and the children were way too mature for a book of this nature. This was a book that I felt the children were smarter than the adults. I did like the old-time Disney animation feel of the book. Good illustrations saved this book.
review 2: This is the first book in a new Disney series ~ Disney Animation Studios Artist Showcase ~ the series will be highlighting the work of artists from their animation studios in original picture books. This first in the series is Golden Book-esque, bringing back the warmth and simpleness of that time in my own childhood.
... more It was clever writing to put the children in the role of parent as they teach their father proper table manners in preparation for an undisclosed surprise dinner guest at the end. I think children will enjoy it. less

Great illustrations in the classic style seen in Disney shorts from the 50s and 60s.
It's fun and should be popular with young children but too predictable.
LOVED the illustrations! I cute tale about table manners.
