Spoon has always been a happy little utensil. But lately he feels like life is just not cutting it. Fork, Knife and Chopsticks all have it so much better than Spoon. But do they? This book celebrates what makes each of us special.

"Spoon--who is an actual spoon--is worried that the other utensils--Fork, Knife, and Chopsticks--lead much more exciting lives than he does. While author Amy Krouse Rosenthal reads with a measured pace and convincing kid voices, her narration doesn't quite match the cheeky cleverness of her text and Scott Magoon's illustrations. (Spoon sleeps on sugar packet pillows in a compartment in the cutlery drawer, natch.) The silly song at the end of the recording ("Oh Spoon, we'll have a picnic in June, ice cream in the afternoon, thanks to Uncle Scoop-oop-ee-do"), performed by Jack Sundrud and Rusty Young, is much more in keeping with the playful mood of this charming bedtime story.
