Disney's Elegant Book of Manners

Vince Jefferds, Author Simon & Schuster $14.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-60507-0
A very dressy jacket with gold embellishments and a gathering of Disney characters will claim the shopper's attention to this oversized book. Mickey Mouse, Snow White and other favorites appear in full-color on all the pages to illustrate Jefferds's rollicking verses on the subjects of civilized vs. deplorable behavior. A brutish cave dweller clubs a weaker being to show that early ""Man was nothing to rave about,Short on manners, long on clout./ If you didn't share his point of view,/ He was apt to raise a lump on you.'' After thousands of years, humans established standards as a way of improving relations with others, Jefferds reminds the reader, in lines covering table etiquette and other amenities. (All ages)
