Miss Molly's School of Manners

A charmingly illustrated picture book about a little raccoon called Algernon and his extraordinary day at Miss Molly’s school. Algernon’s manners are bad at first... but lessons in the Sharing Studio and Listening Carefully Lab, lunchtime in the Dining Hall, the Library’s lovely language books and Good Sports Day soon have a transformative effect.

James Maclaine

James Maclaine joined Usborne Publishing in 2010. Since then he’s written books about meerkats, donkeys and several critters besides, come up with hundreds of drawing, doodling and colouring ideas, and devised puzzles and things to do for a range of activity books. But an illustrated thesaurus and a picture book about manners are the titles that he’s proudest to have authored. Recently, James walked a thousand miles across France and Spain, but he decided to come back to his job in London — because what could be better than writing books for children?
