The Lovereading4Kids comment

A badly behaved little racoon Algernon learns all about manners and why they’re important when he enrols at Miss Molly’s school, and readers will too. Algernon has lesson in listening carefully, in sharing, in being polite and in good sportsmanship, and he realises that having good manners makes life better for him, and for everyone he meets. His day’s activities are illustrated in bright, busy pictures which are great fun to look at, and there’s lots to entertain children in the story too, while the message that manners matter is gently but firmly brought home. ~ Andrea Reece


Miss Molly's School of Manners by James Maclaine

Spend the day with Algernon, a little raccoon who was never very polite, at Miss Molly's School of Manners. Take lessons in the Careful Listening Laboratory and the Art of Sharing Studio, learn table manners in the Dining Hall of Decorum and shine at Good Sports Day. A delightful picture book introduction to manners to share with young children.

About the Author

James Maclaine

James Maclaine studied Classics at Oxford before joining Usborne Publishing in 2010. He never realised that reading Latin and Greek for all those years would lead to writing books about animals, coming up with drawing, doodling and colouring ideas, and setting puzzles, but he’s ever so glad they did.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.
