Meet the Author

When her grandson was born, she wanted him to enjoy the fun of learning Good Manners through the antics of "The Goops." The original copy of the book Goops and How To Be Them had been in her family for over 100 years and is very worn due to generations of love and tears.

She set out to obtain a new book to be his very own, totally innocent of the great adventure ahead. She discovered a great need for children to learn proper manners, the most important step in obtaining good self-esteem. In 1998 she re-introduced Goops and How to Be Them, followed by the 2005 release of A Treasury of Goops.

Her journey has led her on a crusade to bring good manners back into our lives.

    SAVE YOUR MONEY AND BUY THE ORIGINAL!

    SAVE YOUR MONEY and buy the beautifully-bound hardback copy of the original book which contains many more humorously instructive verses and actually costs less! Ms. Ross offers only a paltry selection from the original with an introductory verse that is so poorly written, it would dissuade any child (or adult) reading further. AVOID IMITATIONS! BUY THE ORIGINAL![I suspect Ms. Ross is herself a GOOP who has simply taken advantage of a lapsed copyright.]
