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?

This was not just hilarious but so adorable. I loved the cartoons, I am seriously a fan of this type of illustration.
I loved how dramatic both the characters, I guess that's what I'd call them lol, were.
It really put a smile on my face, maybe I am really enjoying childrens fiction these days. Its a nice repreive from the stressful days of adulthood. What attracts me most to these books is the innocence of the plot and characters.
I also like to think that spoon and fork helping each other out in the end was a message and a lesson for the little kids who read this book. Or maybe I just like to read too much into things haha. Anyway I loved this fun little book and as always I highly recommend this book for toddlers and children. Will make great reading and bonding time with your little ones.

It's morning time which means it's time to feed the baby breakfast. Tiny Spoon and Little Fork each emerge from their respective drawers eagerly awaiting to perform the job of feeding the baby, but each wonders why the other utensil is there. Tiny Spoon and Little Fork each present evidence (including a delightful funny photo album of their related cutlery) as to why they should be feeding the baby. In the end, the baby comes and chooses both utensils to throw on the floor (because that's what babies do), They have to work together to get back to the baby. Once they make it back to the baby, the baby chooses to use both utensils to eat breakfast, Ultimately, Tiny Spoon and Little Fork see that they are equally awesome and go to the dishwasher together.
This was such a cute story that could be used in many different ways. The story is funny, so children should enjoy reading this story aloud. It can also be used to talk about differences, friendship, babies, and even table manners. I loved it!

It's breakfast time and clock announces its arrival.

"Time to feed the baby!" yells clock. Bringg! Bringg! Bringg!

The drawers of the kitchen cupboard roll open and up pops a yawning tiny spoon and a little pointy fork all ready to do the job. But wait? That's always been spoon's job right? Baby loves to sip, savor and slurp her food off of spoon. Little fork explains to spoon that baby wants to move on to biting, chomping and munching and he's the perfect utensil to get the job done.

Both fork and spoon deliver their resumes as to why they believe they deserve the honour of feeding baby. Baby toddles into the kitchen and proves she has a mind of her own. The moment of truth arrives. Which one will baby choose to feed her breakfast? Can you guess?

Little Spoon and Little Fork learn a very valuable lesson. Baby's surprise decision forces the two to work together and not against each other to finally satisfy baby's tummy.

The illustrations are fantastic, full of detail, humour and fun. The book is written in comic/graphic novel style and the storyline is simple and very entertaining. This book can be used to discuss differences, acceptance, friendship, babies and table etiquette. I love it and highly recommend it.

This adorable picture book written in the comic/graphic novel style tells the story of two little pieces of cutlery who fight for the right to feed the baby! Young readers will love the detailed and entertaining illustrations and the simple but inviting fonts and speech bubbles. The storyline is simple and fairly easy to follow, while still being very entertaining and appealing to young readers. As a grade 3 teacher I could definitely see this book in my classroom library and would recommend it to parents and teachers of children in the age 4-9 range. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book!

This was such a fun comic style book. Little Spoon and Tiny fork is a brightly colored and amusing read that will entertain both children and parents. I enjoyed the mention of the tuning fork, for whatever reason this entertained me greatly
