Starting in March, Disney Publishing will be launching a new series of original children’s books that will feature the work of some of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ top artists. The first to arrive is a title conceived and illustrated by Lorelay Bove, a visual development artist who has worked on Wreck-It Ralph and The Princess and the Frog as well as previously published books based on the films.
Titled No Slurping, No Burping!: A Tale of Table Manners, the first book in the Disney Artist Showcase is a humorous look at manners featuring two kids who school their dad on proper mealtime etiquette. The publisher’s description follows:
Evie and Simon always mind their manners. But sometimes, they have to mind their father’s, too! In this humorous spin on manners books, two kids teach their father everything he needs to know about mealtime etiquette. Everything is going well, until a surprise visitor arrives for dinner! Will Father be able to remember all of Evie and Simon’s lessons?
Below is a gallery of some sample pages provided by Disney-Hyperion who is publishing the title:
No Slurping, No Burping! is slated for release on March 4 and is currently available for pre-order from Amazon.
