Gelett Burgess: American Humorist contains 50 books, essays and images including the famous teacher of children’s manners, “The Goops.”
“The Goops” entertained children and adults alike with the rowdy antics of impish creatures whose clever lessons were on important etiquette basics, such as neatness and respect for one’s elders. Beyond children’s guidebooks, Burgess also wrote adult texts that satirize society while making a plea for a more tolerant world. His crisp writing shows his keen sense of irony, and his satire continues to distinguish him as a highly relevant author in today's world.
