Kids Can Press | September 1, 2010 | Picture Books

Spork is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
His mum is a spoon. His dad is a fork. And he''s a bit of both. He''s Spork! Spork sticks out in the regimented world of the cutlery drawer. The spoons think he''s too pointy, while the forks find him too round. He never gets chosen to be at the table at mealtimes until one day a very messy ? thing arrives in the kitchen who has never heard of cutlery customs. Will Spork finally find his place at the table? This "multi-cutlery" tale is a humorous and lively commentary on individuality and tolerance. Its high-spirited illustrations capture the experience and emotions of anyone who has ever wondered about their place in the world.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable book, great lesson. I wish so badly that this book had been around while I was growing up! As the product of a mixed-race couple, I found there were few stories that spoke to me, let alone reassured me that there was a place for me in the "kitchen". It's hard to find good material that teaches children about accepting everyone in spite of their differences. I loved the everything about the book; the illustrations, the story, the message.
