This is adorable, but I think my favorite line is the one on the cover: "Not exactly a sequel to Spoon. More like a change in place setting." ( )

The book is about two friends who did everything together until one of them got broken. So the other one had to be on his own and found out that he could many things on his own that he could never imagined he would be able to do. ( )

Impossible not to enjoy. Full of kid friendly puns (I liked them too) and a great story about friendship and independence. ( )

Author Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrator Scott Magoon return to the world of utensils in this follow-up to their marvelous Spoon - as it says on the cover, "Not exactly a sequel to Spoon. More like a change in place setting" - detailing the adventures of a pair of chopsticks. Inseparable until an accident puts one of them temporarily out of commission, the two chopsticks are accustomed to doing everything together. When one of them must suddenly fend for himself, he discovers a new world of friends and activities - friends and activities that he is able to share with his partner, once he is back on his feet.

As with its predecessor, I really enjoyed Chopsticks, with its whimsical artwork, amusing story, and clever interplay between the two. I appreciated the message of the book - that it is important to stand on your own feet (or foot, in the case of each chopstick), but equally important to stick with your friends - but never felt overwhelmed by it, probably because the story itself, and its cast of characters, was such fun. Magoon's artwork is drolly amusing, managing to be quiet simple, graphically speaking, but also very expressive, while Rosenthal's text is entertaining. I'm just waiting for these two to come up with biographies of Fork, or Knife - maybe Whisk? ( )
