Tea parties have certain rules. You must lay your napkin carefully in your lap, say "please" and "thank you," and sip, not slurp, your tea. But SOMEONE at this tea party keeps breaking a very important rule—NO TOOTING! Will this tea party be ruined? And WHO keeps tooting, anyway? A charming and hilarious take on sibling dynamics that plays against gender expectations and has huge kid appeal. An afterword includes information on tea and all the wonderful and delicious ways it can be served.

Praise For No Tooting at Tea

"The text is clever enough, featuring a cheekily informative if Eurocentric afterword. The endlessly entertaining theme of flatulence, a satisfying portrayal of an imperious friend getting her just deserts (and desserts?), and the delightfully indelicate alliteration of the titular tooting should invite a wide audience."
