Synopsis

Don't Dip Your Chips in Your Drink, Kate by Caryl Hart

When Kate P Green goes for tea with the Queen, she gets more than she bargained for in this hilariously anarchic look at the tricky subject of table manners. Although this book won't teach your child perfect etiquette... This wonderfully wacky, rhyming story will provide you with the perfect starting point to discuss manners and mealtimes - all delivered with a healthy dose of humour and fun.
