about

When you''re a little bit spoon and little bit fork, where do you go when the table is set? A funny "multi-cutlery" tale for everyone who has ever wondered about their place in the world.Spork is neither spoon nor fork but, rather, a bit of both. His (spoon) mother and (fork) father think he''s perfect just the way he is. Only, Spork stands out. All the other cutlery belongs with those like themselves, and they all have a specific purpose. Spork tries fitting in with the spoons, and then with the forks, but he isn''t quite enough like either. Instead, he watches from the drawer at dinnertime as the others get to play with the food and then enjoy a nice warm bath in the sink. But one morning, a "messy thing" arrives. A thing that has obviously never heard of cutlery customs or table manners. Will Spork finally find his place at the table?In this unconventional celebration of individuality, Kyo Maclear has created a humorous "multi-cutlery" tale for everyone who has ever wondered about their place in the world. The mixed-media artwork by award-winning illustrator Isabelle Arsenault is high-spirited and quirky, providing just the right level of mixed-up-ness to the scenes. Children will appreciate the fun take on the inner lives of cutlery. This picture book is perfect for discussions of individuality and acceptance. But most important, it offers a hopeful and positive message that all of us belong and have a purpose.
