Ever wonder what your kitchen does in the early hours of the morning?

"I am very very busy, and that is how I like it."

That's what your kitchen would tell you if you listened. While the fridge stays cool as a cucumber, the pot holder is longing for a cool drink. The cookie jar feels sad when its belly is empty. Does the freezer get goose bumps? And do you know what the silverware does in the early hours of the morning?

The next time you're in the kitchen, listen very closely and you'll hear . . .

Petra Mathers, best known for her beloved Lottie's World series, lends her distinctive, quirky style to this humorous collection of poems.
