Synopsis

Yucky Mucky Manners by Sam Lloyd

I can't wait to meet the animals, To smile and say hello. Why don't you come and meet them, too? Follow me, let's go! Welcome to the jungle. I'm sure it's filled with animals with perfect manners. They wouldn't ever speak with their mouths full . . . would they? Hmm . . . perhaps children have better manners than these beasties, after all! This new departure for Sam is her funniest book yet and makes learning about manners utterly hilarious.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

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 love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
