Product Overview
From Follett

When a spilled bucket of paint creates a blob called Blurp, etiquette coach Ms. Picklepop tries to continue her class, despite Blurp's many, messy distractions, and learns a thing or two about manners herself as they form an unlikely friendship.

From the Publisher

From Caldecott Honoree Cindy Derby comes an uproarious tale about an etiquette coach and the sentient paint blob that just might teach her proper manners.

When etiquette coach Ms. Picklepop teeters off her stool and spills a bucket of paint, a creature emerges. Not a scary one, or an evil one, or anything of the sort. Instead, what comes alive is ...


She'll have to carry on with her lesson, despite Blurp's many, messy distractions. But paint splotches and burps aren't all that disrupt Ms. Picklepop's decorous class. Perhaps through an unlikely friendship, Ms. Picklepop will learn a thing or two about manners herself.

Fall in love with Cindy Derby's newest adorable creation - Blurp - in this colorful, heartwarming, and laugh-out-loud funny tale.

*"Derby's natural inclination to play with paint like a child in a mud puddle comes fully to her aid here...
Our hero is bound to find fast friends with ill-mannered readers everywhere." - Kirkus, starred review

*"Derby breathes fresh air into familiar comedy tropes and 'practice kindness' messaging, while anchoring the book's unleashed sense of color and character in a core truth: there is nothing more wonderful than being treated with respect." - Publishers Weekly, starred review
