A comic, idiosyncratic book about the importance of good manners, shown through the exploits of a stubborn but recognizable main character, and depicted in colorful, quirky illustrations.
Harriet is a stubborn child, who never says “please” and hates being asked to do so. Because of her rudeness she misses out on many wonderful things. She decides this isn’t fair, and goes off to find a place where nobody ever says “please.” But in the town of Never-Say-Please, the townsfolk grab everything before she has a chance to do anything. Hungry and miserable, she climbs a fruit-laden apple tree, but a group of monkeys take all the apples. Harriet is exhausted and desperate. Will she finally agree to say “please?” The book is intended to show its young audience that manners are important, and help make the world run smoothly.
