For more than half a century Miss Hyacinthe Phypps has been offering guidance on proper behavior. Her simple rules of propriety and common sense have helped a generation of girls over the threshold to womanhood. Recognizing the need that prevails more today than ever before, Miss Phypps has been persuaded to bring back into print this priceless volume of her words of advice, delightfully accompanied by Edward Gorey's ink and watercolor illustrations, that have been so valuable on so many occasions. It is the publisher's fondest hope that this book will serve the current generation of young ladies as it served their mothers.

'Gorey's unique talent should be represented as completely as possible in every collection of American art and literature.' Booklist 'Irresistible black-and-white drawings...irrepressible wordplay.' New York Times '[Gorey creates] dark masterpieces of surreal morality...beautifully depicted.' Vanity Fair 'One of the most original artistic and literary minds in late 20th Century America.' Los Angeles Times
