Stuart "Stoo" Hample’s bio

Stoo Hample's Book of Bad Manners

author/illustrator: Stuart "Stoo" Hample

The Toy Hog. The Blabbermouth. The Food Face, the Belcher, and (shudder) the Nose Picker. They're all here, and more a veritable rogues' gallery of the rudest, crudest, meanest manners found wherever children slurp, grab, desert the table, or cut in line. With his trademark retro artwork and hilarious running commentary, Stoo Hample teaches children good manners by example of what not to do and bolsters his case with a final broad hint that the reader who fails to take heed may soon be the star of a book just like this one.

From the sultan of silly comes a comical, kid-friendly guide to avoiding naughty behavior.
