Poor Spoon. Though he has such a large, loving family and seemingly a happy and carefree existence, lately he’s been feeling, well, despondent. All his friends seem to have much more fun than him. Knife, for instance, gets to cut and spread. The Chopstick twins are so cool and exotic, and Fork, well she gets to do practically everything.
Little does Spoon realise that just as he envies his friends, they too envy him. After all, only Spoon gets to dive head first into a bowl of ice cream, is trusted to measure stuff, and at the end of the day gets to relax in a hot cup of tea! This is a lovely little story
about how though we are all unique, we are just as special and important as everyone else. With charmingly hip illustrations, and featuring a particularly cosy ending, Spoon has the just the right amounts of warmth and sweetness to become a family favourite. If everyone else seems to be having all the fun, this book will remind you just how good it is to be you.
