It is written with a loose, rhyming style that makes the message seem less preachy and more accessible. As a few other reviewers noted, the rhyming style is fluid - it is not the same on ever page - however, it was easy to read aloud to my kids. I personally felt this added to the story as it had an almost sing-songy flow, which makes it less preachy.
The drawings are all in the same style as the cover. They are simple, but they match the story and are great for small children. My daughter (4) thought they were cute and was actually inspired to try her hand at copying them. Since she is only four, she wasn't successful, but I like a book that makes her want to try!.
As for readability, the book looks great on the Kindle for PC. The images scale up to a size that is easy to see and read, but as one reviewer mentioned, the text is not editable, so it can't be enlarged if you plan to read it on a smaller device like an iPhone. Of course, this is always a choice with children's Kindle books. If you make the text editable and there are more than a few words, then the child can't see the picture as you read the story. If you make the text & picture one same page the story flows well, but you can't enlarge the text. There are pros and cons of each. But all of my children prefer the stories (like this one) that show the text and the pictures at the same time.Read more ›
I loved the simplistic drawings and the way the story just nudges the character. I wish that children would have better manners, it is nice to see that someone is caring enough to give an example of this to other children. When was the last time a child held the door for you? For me, not in a pretty long time.
A good read to book, Henry just wants to have a little fun, burping and doing some ill-mannered things. But, ok, you can really tell I am old school now, I better stop it now.

I am a reviewer and have reviewed this product free and for my opinion. That said, it was cute and kids may benefit from the lesson told.
Now, my concern with this piece (that likely is not the fault of the author but the device I am using) is that I had difficulty viewing the small text on the Kindle. With the text embedded as a picture, it became impossible to enlarge the text, so I had a hard time trying to read the words. Personally, I would suggest having pictures and text on different "pages" to help with the flow of the book.
Overall, I feel this deserves three stars because it was a nice read, but would have been better if this piece of work were polished a bit more.
At times the story was a little crude. His manners "picked his nose, his ears, his rear. Oh my, oh dear!"
My five year old grand-daughter had a problem with the illustrations. She said they looked like monsters and not humans.
The font isn't adjustable and is small. You can magnify it slightly on each page, but it's a tedious process.
I give it a generous 3 out of 5 stars. It wasn't for us, but other families may have a more positive opinion.
It's very short so it makes for a very quick read. I didn't find it made a good bedtime story, but it does make a good "let's take a 5 minute play break and read a story in the middle of the day" kind of book.
My 4 year old seems to take to it. She's asked to read it again a few times.
