Don't teach the bunny rabbits your own disgusting habits
Don't picnic with a python in the park Everyone knows to mind your manners, to say please and thank you, and not to talk with your mouth full! But when it comes to dealing with grumpy grizzly bears and hairy chimpanzees, things get a lot more complicated . . . Rollicking rhymes combine perfectly with Nick Sharratt's trademark witty illustrations in Never Shake a Rattlesnake - a thoroughly modern look at good behaviour!

Reading this book to Ameleah, I could tell she really enjoyed it. She was able to point out some of the animals, and found the pictures hilarious! Definitely recommend!

I first gave this book 3 stars as I thought the storyline was basic. But I have changed it to 5 stars because recently my son has been totally LOVING this book. He has picked it out from his bookshelf and requested that I read it to him - a lot!  The book uses rhyme well. My son enjoys the pictures and also joining in as the text is simple and easy to pick up by young kids. I got it for £1 when The Works had a sale on so it has been worth it.

This book my little boy picked himself, as he loves animals and the front cover grabbed his attention. A funny story about all the things you shouldn't do with animals, a laugh out loud book thats easy to join in with. We loved the ending with the elephant. This book is brilliant.

A silly book about manners which made us giggle. Nice bright bold pictures this is probably better for younger children. Nice rhyming words and we love Nick sharratt's illustrations.
