Overview

A book of manners with flaps, changing-picture wheels, and humor!

Lucy is drinking a glass of cold, delicious milk, and her brother, Milo, wants one, too. “Milk!” he screams—but to no avail. No matter how much he carries on, Mommy will not give Milo milk . . . until Lucy tells him, “Use the special word.” Milo tries all the words he can think of, and when none of them works, he thinks of another one—“Please.” And Mommy brings him milk.

Told with great humor and lots of insight into young children, this book will make kids laugh out loud, and changing-picture wheels and lift-the-flaps add to the merriment. And it has a hilarious ending that will really ring true to parents and caregivers who get trapped by their own pronouncements. Learning to say “please” and “thank you” has never been such fun.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

When Milo-a cat in overalls, with two (slightly vampiric) pointed teeth-wants some milk like his sister (she's a little dog), he struggles to find just the right "special word" to get his mother (a bunny) to respond. By turning a wheel, readers can spin the possibilities-"Abracadabra!"; "Floopindoodle!"-into place. When Milo finally speaks the magic word, Mommy moves "quick as a bunny" via a foldout panel (though he has to learn another special word once she brings him his milk). Colorful art, distinctive characters and gentle humor courtesy of the flywheels lend a common lesson some pizzazz. Ages 3-6. (May)

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
This movable book for young children with a very unexpected ending takes twenty-four pages to teach the importance of those three little words, please and thank you. Lucy and Milo are sitting on one side of a room and Mommy is doing laundry on the other side. "Milk!" shouts Milo, but Mommy does not move. "Milk!" he screams, but Mommy still does not move. Little sister Lucy suggests that Milo use the special word, so he tries several special magic words but Mommy still does not move. He thinks and thinks and then he remembers. "Please. Milk, please," he says and Mommy hurries to bring his milk, but she stands too close. Why is she crowding him so? Lucy whispers to her brother again. "Thank you," says Milo and Mommy returns to her laundry. Everyone is happy. Then Milo begins to ask for more things. "Birthday cake, please." "Magic wand, please." "Pony, please." At this point, the book ends with the words, "Now what will Mommy do?" leaving its readers to have a further, and deeper, discussion about manners. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich

    Great for teaching manners in a fun way

    My 2.5 year old twins love this book. Many times when they don't say "please" or "thank you" all I have to do is call them Milo and they remember their manners. They love the interactivity in this book and love to turn the wheel and see the other special words.
