Spoon has always been a happy little utensil, but lately he feels like life is just not cutting it. For, Knife, and Chopsticks all have it so much better than Spoon. But do they?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Spoon is a spoon who is feeling down because his life is not as exciting as those of his friends Knife, Fork, and Chopsticks. He covets their thrilling jobs and unique styles ( And Chopsticks! They are so lucky! Everyone thinks they're really cool and exotic. ). As it turns out, the other culinary implements think Spoon is the one who has it made who else gets to bang on pots, dive into a bowl of ice cream, or relax in hot cup of tea? Invigorated by these reassurances, Spoon can't sleep and so hops into bed with his parents and, you guessed it, spoons. The details included in Magoon's artwork are laugh-out-loud funny: in the Spoon family photo, black-sheep Spork can be seen looking woeful off to the side; there is a cute gag about a dish who ran away with a spoon; and the depiction of the Chopsticks as a couple of deadly serious ballroom dancers prancing around a plate of sushi is indelible. Rosenthal's creation is adorable and funny and will be embraced by both children and parents.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2008 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Young Spoon lives a fairly happy life with a large extended family (including a ladle and a very fancy Aunt Silver), but he can't help being a bit jealous of some of his friends. Knife, for example, "is so lucky! He gets to cut, he gets to spread." Not to mention Chopsticks: "Everyone thinks they're really cool and exotic! No one thinks I'm cool or exotic." Spoon's mother doesn't try to change his mind, but reacts neutrally. Outside conversations let readers know that Spoon is being envied right back: "Spoon is so lucky!" sigh the Chopsticks. "We could never function apart." At bedtime, Spoon's mom offers encouragement ("Your friends will never know the joy of diving headfirst into a bowl of ice cream") then invites him into the big bed-to spoon, of course. The talented Magoon (Mystery Ride!) gives the utensils plenty of personality, with wide eyes and expressive antlike appendages, and Rosenthal's (Little Pea) skillful storytelling moves along briskly. The humorous but earnest message about valuing one's own talents comes through loud and clear. Ages 2-6. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
