Take silly seriously! A fall-off-your-high-chair funny picture book starring a spoon, a fork, and the baby they both want to feed, perfect for fans of The Bad Seed.
“Time to feed the baby!” yells clock. Tiny Spoon is ready for the job! But who’s this pointy guy? “I’m Little Fork. I feed the baby, too!” Wait. What? This isn’t going to get ugly, is it? (Nah!) Who’s known baby longer? (Spoon) Who’s good at stabbing and poking? (Fork) Who comes from the best family? (Both families are rather impressive.) Who does baby like better? (Neither. Turns out Baby likes throwing both utensils across the kitchen, and that’s EXACTLY what baby does.)
Now it's going to take cooperation—not competition—to make their way back to baby. And when they do get back they'll still have to feed the baby. Anyone who has ever tried to feed a baby knows it ain't easy—but does it have to be this hard?
