The magical sisters are enrolled in an etiquette class when their manners are not fit for the king and queen of the enchanted land of Harmony. Can Elizabeth the Emu help the royal sisters?

In the beautiful and peaceful land of Harmony, three magical sisters, the Bobos Babes, uproot the kingdom’s tranquility with some not-so-polite actions -nose-picking, belching, and other noisy…expulsions. Their parents, the King and Queen, enroll the sisters in the elegant Elizabeth the Emu’s etiquette class where they learn manners and other ways to self-improve like being on time, politeness, and proper personal hygiene.

​Elizabeth the Emu explains to Angel Scarlet, Princess Daphne, and Fairy Cora that having proper etiquette is more than good manners, it’s about being kind and courteous. And for the sisters? Well, let’s just say that they will be needing more than one lesson from Elizabeth the Emu’s etiquette class.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from iRead Book Tours. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

The Elegant Emu is an adorable children’s book about three magical princesses who possess unique powers. Unfortunately, they don’t have good manners which distresses their parents, but children will get a kick out of princesses burping, farting, and more. They are sent to the Elegant Emu to learn etiquette and while they learn, children will pick up some pointers as well. The big question is whether the princesses will actually follow through on what they learn.

The story is told in verse and the illustrations are bright and colorful with good detail. The book trailer (below) is the best one I’ve ever seen. Be sure to check it out!

I definitely recommend The Elegant Emu for children. Not only is a cute story with great illustrations, but they should learn some rules of etiquette as well.

This is the best book trailer I have ever seen!
