“Our favorite cast of cutlery - including Spoon, Spork, and Knife - is back, but Chopsticks are the stars of this tale. Children will love the familiar characters, the crisp, bright illustrations, and the funny adventures Chopsticks get into together -- and apart. This is a wonderful way to show why there are some things that are best done with a friend, and other things on our own.”
— Jessilynn Norcross, McLean & Eakin Booksellers, Petoskey, MI
