Grade 3-7–This update of Oops! The Manners Guide for Girls (Pleasant Co, 1997) covers the basic etiquette areas, including cell phone and table manners, host and guest duties, and such occasions as weddings and family gatherings. The text is sprinkled with lots of colorful illustrations and quizzes geared to letting readers assess their own behavior. Though the rules echo the traditional thoughts on the subjects, the lively writing and straight talk make them seem fresh and relevant today. Especially well done is the section on writing nicely worded thank-you notes, which, in the age of text messaging and e-mails, takes on an even greater significance.–Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA

Gr. 5-8. The emphasis is on good manners as a reflection of respect for oneself and others in this updated edition of Oops! The Manners Guide for Girls (1997), with bouncy new illustrations. Clear, straightforward information covers introductions, sleepovers, special occasions, gifts, table manners, hosts and guests, and more. Mingus' cheery, multiethnic characters have a touch of anime and a little bit of the PowerPuff Girls about them, and brightly colored sidebars and display fonts blend in well. The cell phone advice is excellent, though more about online etiquette and the use of iPods, gaming, and other e-toys would have made this a stronger book. A good place to go for readers not quite ready for Miss Manners herself. GraceAnne DeCandido
