Original Illustrated Book: "Vegetarian Dinner Party Etiquette for Monsters"


Ask a question

Installment Number 46 in the Helpful Hints and Essential Advice series will guide you and your friendly local monsters in the treacherous world of vegetarian dinner party etiquette. Essential topics covered include what to do about earwax at the table, how to use a napkin, sporks, and more!

Please note that I made up absolutely everything in this book! The Helpful Hints and Essential Advice series is intended to take the format of small, cheap and cheerful advice books of days past, (before the internet took over) and poke fun at modern life. New installments will appear here as I get around to it!

These books are just shy of 5" tall by 4" wide, 16 pages long and paperbound in a cover printed on my press. The inside pages are digital laser prints of my original gouache illustrations. I bound each book by hand on my century-old wire stitcher/stapler. The story is entirely suitable for all ages.

If you have any questions about the book, please contact me! Thanks for looking!

I accept direct checkout for payment. Sales tax will be applied to all orders as required by Etsy and local laws.

Shipping from United States

Rate increases have made it so that shipping a single card in a protective mailer now costs me over $2.50. However, the rates don't go up steeply from there. For orders of greeting cards within the United States, the first card will incur a shipping charge of $2.50, but additional cards in the same order will ship for no additional shipping fee. SO - it pays to buy more than one!

I will ship your order within the time period specified on each listing. For most products, and for most of the year, this will be within three business days, but for certain items and at certain time periods (holidays and vacations) shipping may take longer - when extended shipping times are in effect, you'll see this noted on the shipping times with each listing. I ship my products in sturdy mailers via USPS first class mail, or via Priority mail for larger or more expensive items - see the individual listing for shipping options.

Due to increasing costs and complications, I am sorry to say that I am no longer shipping items to addresses outside the United States and Canada. Any customs duties for Canadian orders are the responsibility of the buyer.

I want every order to arrive in good shape in the mailbox of a happy customer, but I know that some times bad things happen in transit. If something has gone wrong, please let me know. In cases of loss or damage, I'll either grant a refund or dispatch a replacement depending on your wishes and what I have in stock. If items are damaged in shipping, I may ask you to return them to me at my expense so that I can see if I need to adjust my packaging.

Returns & Exchanges

I gladly accept returns and exchanges

Just contact me within: 14 days of delivery

Ship items back to me within: 30 days of delivery

I don't accept cancellations

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

Returns and exchange details

If - for reasons other than loss or damage in transit - you are not entirely satisfied with your order, contact me with your concerns. I may ask you to send the item back and then, once I receive it I will refund to you the amount of your original purchase, including the original shipping charge. For loss or damage in transit, see "Shipping Policy" above.


Unless otherwise noted, all of my products are created by hand, with, naturally, the assistance of paintbrush or printing press. I am always working to improve my process, but please keep in mind that until I am perfect, there will be some endearing human variations in my individual products...
