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.
