Riassunto: There is a little bit of naughty that lives in us all, and Barbara Ross recognizes this. Ross is the founder of Goops Unlimited, a company on a crusade to bring manners and polite behavior back into the lives of contemporary families. And her latest attempt is the re-release of the humorous book, Goops And How To Be Them, originally printed 100-years-ago!
With wit and whimsy, the characters in Goops And How To Be Them represent the childish tendencies, and immature pranks every human is familiar with. The characters display such taboos as speaking out of turn, and taking things that don't belong to them, but are presented in such a way as to become endearing to the reader. Children learn in relation to the Goops, "While its fun to see them, it's terrible to be them."
Having made an appearance in Webster's Dictionary, Goops are described as "Rude creatures devoid of beauty and grace." And throughout the numerous drawings and verse in Goops And How To Be Them, this concept is perfectly illustrated. But there is a goal in mind, and that is to teach children to recognize impolite behavior and stray from it as much as possible.
Frank Gelett Burgess (January 30, 1866 - September 18, 1951) was an artist, art critic, poet, author, and humorist. He was born in Boston, and graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a B.S., in 1887.
Barbara Ross is the founder of Goops Unlimited, a company on a crusade to bring manners and polite behavior back into the lives of contemporary families. She has been re-introducing the work of Mr. Burgess for over a decade.
