Alberta thinks Arthur is "really adorable" and if he's to get a chance to play the song he wrote for her on his electric guitar hell have to cram in enough manners to fake his way through dinner with the Saurians. Arthur's nervousness ("Howmanydays wegot?") is contagious, and-after he takes bratty Sydney Saurian out to the treehouse for a lesson-you'll agree that "the nicest part of manners is teaching them to other people. Here's an author/illustrator match that might have been made in heaven. What Marshall's lovably lumpish, light-headed characters have needed all along is a dose of the kind of home-truth psychology that underlies Hoban's sense of humor.

Irving Goodman, self-confessed dirty old man, is 83 years old and has just fallen in love. Unfortunately, Justine Trimble, satr of 1950s cowboy B-movies, has been dead for 47 years. Who but Russell Hoban could weave a tale of life’s pleasures and pain around a candy pig? And who but Quentin Blake could make the most poignant of stories so lighthearted and delightful? In this episodic picture book by an inimitable author-illustrator duo, a fantastic chain of events is triggered by the unacknowledged fall of a marzipan pig behind the sofa.

I love Russell Hoban and hadn't heard of this children's book so I bought it sight unseen. It is a charming story but a little long for wee ones and definitely not the best and only. I had to see the combo of Hoban's writing with James Marshall's illustration. Fun!
