“Modan brings her Eisner Award-winning talents to emerging readers in this graphic novel. Maya's parents don't like her messy table manners, so what will the queen think? Well, it turns out that the queen is willing to offer allowances for a guest and declares the evening one of messy manners. The result is ridiculous and hysterical, perfect for messy eaters and those who are forbidden to have their own fun at the table.”
-- Marika McCoola, Odyssey Bookshop, South Hadley, MA


Description
Are Maya's manners fit for a queen?
In the midst of a family dinner with her scolding parents, Maya receives a very unexpected invitation to dine with the queen. Suddenly, her messy manners are put to the ultimate test and she begins to improvise her very own set of rules, with uproarious results. Filled with humor and exquisitely imagined detail, this book by Eisner Award-winner Rutu Modan is bound to turn every child into a voracious reader.
