Description

Izzy is thrilled to finally help set the table, learning all the proper places for her friends Fork, Spoon, Dish, Napkin, Cup, and Knife. But once they get into a nightly groove, Izzy and her friends grow tired of their same old spots. Shaking things up doesn't go over so well with Mom and Dad, so Spoon and Dish run off for an adventure of their own. Lonely without her favorite tablemates, Izzy will need to find a way to convince Spoon and Dish to come back to the table.
Perfect for any kid who has ever resisted a daily task, this clever, pun-filled story is gentle reminder that every dish has its place, and that injecting some creativity into daily tasks can make even the dullest ones lots of fun.



About the Author

BEN CLANTON loves a good adventure (especially those that happen in books). However, no matter where he goes (next door, Italy, or the Moon) Ben likes coming home best (hopefully to some macaroni and cheese). He is the author and illustrator of Vote for Me, and currently calls home Boston, Massachusetts, where he cooks up stories like this one. www.benclanton.com
