Ginny gives Kyle all the rules to follow when eating in the cafeteria since this is his first time. But do the rules really help?
I'm afraid the humor was odd and didn't really work for me. The age targeted is 6 - 9, which I can understand since most little ones wouldn't understand the story at all, and the text is very long for a picture book. The illustrations weren't funny to me, they were more on the creepy side. But then that's why they publish lots of stories and various artists. Not everything works for everybody.
