Review:

Fans of the fractured fairy tale genre will be very interested to learn the behind-the-scenes, never-before-told back story of the romance between the dish and the spoon of "Hey Diddle Diddle" fame. We all know that the dish ran away with the spoon after the cow jumped over the moon, but who could have envisioned the life they went on to lead? Winding up in New York City, the pair quickly finds fame and fortune in a vaudeville act. Unfortunately, like so many before them, the glory goes to their head and the money drains out of their pockets. Turning to a life of crime, the Dish and the Spoon learn the hard way that crime doesn't pay.

Mini Grey (The Very Smart Pea and the Princess-to-Be) pens a hilarious and romantic tale, accompanied by zany illustrations set in early 20th century Manhattan. The happily-ever-after ending will bring a smile to every face, human and utensil alike. --Emilie Coulter
