His mum is a spoon. His dad is a fork. And he's a bit of both. He's Spork!

Spork sticks out in the regimented world of the cutlery drawer. The spoons think he's too pointy, while the forks find him too round. He never gets chosen to be at the table at mealtimes until one day a very messy ... thing arrives in the kitchen who has never heard of cutlery customs. Will Spork finally find his place at the table?

This ?multi-cutlery? tale is a humorous and lively commentary on individuality and tolerance. Its high-spirited illustrations capture the experience and emotions of anyone who has ever wondered about their place in the world.

Beautifully illustrated and ever more relevant today, Maclear tackles identity and belonging head-on in a heartwarming story about (what else?) Spork.

This is a very pretty picture book with a cute story--might make a good read aloud since the word Spork is so fun to say, and older kids would enjoy it.
