Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers,
Pub. Date:
Stone Age people invented the first knives...and also the first spoons.In the Middle Ages the first books of manners told readers to wipe their greasy fingers on the tablecloth. And in 1669 King Louis XIV ordered that table knives should have rounded ends because there'd been too many stabbings.InWhat You Never Knew About Fingers, Forks, & Chopsticks,Patricia Lauber and John Manders serve up a hilarious and informative look at how ways of eating and manners have changed through the ages. This well-researched tour of social history makes the subject of how we eat more fascinating and fun than you ever imagined it could be.
