CHOPSTICKS, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, ill. by Scott Magoon (Hyperion, January 24, 2012)(ages 4-8). The Chopsticks are inseparable, working together like a well (olive) oiled machine.  Until, one day, Chopstick A breaks a leg and Chopstick B has to make his way on his own.  But how will Chopstick B get along without his partner?

CHOPSTICKS is fun and funny and colorful, and a great exploration of standing on one's own.  In sum, CHOPSTICKS is perhaps the finest coming-of-age story involving kitchen utensils yet written.
