MAYA MAKES A MESS by Rutu Modan. Toon Books, 2012.
Maya's manners are atrocious. She eats with her hands, slurps, burps, and is generally an embarrassment. Her parents warn her that if she were to behave this way in front of the Queen, it would be the end of her. However, the Queen rather admires Maya's lack of convention when it comes to eating. <662>
