Sarah Ferguson pens book on manners

NEW YORK , Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has teamed up with illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser to create a children's picture book on manners.

"Tea for Ruby" is due to be published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers in Fall 2008.


The Duchess of York, who is also the mother of two princesses, has published 26 books during her career, among them several highly successful children's stories such as "Budgie the Helicopter," which was adapted as an animated TV series, and "The Adventures of Little Red" series.

"I was raised to appreciate that there is a time and place for manners, not just for the sake of following rules, but rather because etiquette and good manners show courtesy and respect. I've raised my girls as part of the royal family according to this philosophy," Ferguson said in a statement. "Now I can pass along this message to princesses everywhere, and I'm thrilled to do it with the brilliant best-selling illustrator, Robin Preiss Glasser."
