About This Book
Mr. Rabbit's new neighbors are Otters. OTTERS! But he doesn't know anything about Otters. Will they get along? Will they be friends? Just treat otters the same way you'd like them to treat you, advises wise Mr. Owl. And so begins Mr. Rabbit's reflection on good manners.
In a hilarious bow (but a polite one) to Emily Post, Laurie Keller vividly animates some great lessons in politesse, just for youngsters. The Golden Rule is brought delightfully to life in these well-behaved hijinks featuring Mr. Rabbit and his new neighbors, the Otters.
"Keller serves up sound, friendly advice for maintaining a peaceable kingdom." — Publishers Weekly
"Each page bursts with colorful illustrations and is scattered with words of different sizes and fonts. This simple story is certain to appeal to children." — School Library Journal
"While kids may well have encountered the Golden Rule elsewhere, this explanation and elaboration nicely unifies what might otherwise seem like a dreary list of manners. This lively book is anything but." — Kirkus Reviews
