Publisher Comments:

From best-selling author Amy Krouse Rosenthal and rising artistic talent Scott Magoon comes Chopsticks, a companion book to their beloved Spoon. This charming picture book tells the story of two chopsticks who have been best friends for as long as they can remember. But then one day while perfecting a trick, Chopstick gets hurt. But Chopstick doesn't want his best friend to be stuck nursing him back to health, so he sends him off for an adventure. Witty and inventive, Chopsticks celebrates both independence and the unbreakable bonds of friendship.

Review:

"The chopsticks from Rosenthal and Magoon's Spoon (2009) take center stage in this clever companion book, which is as charming and whimsical as its predecessor. Best friends, the chopsticks are all but inseparable. 'They go everywhere together. They do everything together. They're practically attached at the hip.' But while trying a fancy new culinary trick, one of the chopsticks snaps and is whisked away (literally, by a whisk) to the medicine cabinet, where a grave bottle of glue pronounces, 'It was a clean break. He just needs to stay off it while it sets.' The marriage of text, digital art, and design provide plentiful puns and laugh-out-loud humor, as the injured chopstick encourages his friend to explore the world without him ('Go! Chop, chop!'). He eventually picks up a whole new set of skills, helping Spoon pole vault, testing cupcakes for doneness, and even conducting a motley kitchen-utensil orchestra. Rosenthal spells out the story's message — 'Unexpectedly, being apart had made each of them even stronger' — but it's leavened with plenty of droll comedy, reminding readers that solo practice can make for even better duets. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

One of our favorite books! The tale of two best friends who are inseparable, but after a mishap leaves one injured, they find themselves separated.
