Oh, How Sylvester Can Pester!

And Other Poems More or Less About Manners

Oh, How Sylvester Can Pester!

Illustrated by: Drazen Kozjan
For Ages: 4 - 8
Rudeness may be on the rise, but this collection of read-aloud rhymes is just the solution to manners in need of mending! Author Robert Kinerk and illustrator Drazen Kozjan present a not-so-charming cast of characters—from Eleanor Ickity, who is served nothing that she likes to eat, to Sylvester, who can pester and pester and pester—using tongue-in-cheek humor to warn the ill-mannered about the consequences of their shameful behavior. Perfect for storytime or anytime, these playful poems beg to be read aloud again and again.
