Spork, Kyo Maclear

2010/10/04

In this clever picture book about a kitchen utensil that just doesn’t seem to fit with the other traditional forks, spoons, and knives, young Spork finds himself lonely and a little confused about who he is supposed to be. As the child of a fork and spoon, other utensils make fun of him for being too pointy or too round; Spork finds himself being asked over and over, “What are you, anyway?” and attempts to be more forklike or more spoonlike, but to no avail. Then one day, something happens which calls for Spork’s special attributes!

This is a charming little book written by a multicultural author, Kyo Maclear, who is half British and half Japanese. It is an adorable way to express the common confusions of many multicultural children, and will probably be gifted to many of them by well-meaning relatives.
