The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon

NEW Paperback Picture Book with CD Set : The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon by Mini Grey
Kate Greenaway Medal
This book contains an audio CD of the story.
This continuation of a classic nursery rhyme answers the question, "What happened after the dish ran away with the spoon?" It follows these two unlikely companions on a somewhat dark adventure to the big city, where they get their start in show business. Unfortunately for the pair, their rise to the top and their heavy spending lead to their downfall, after which they are replaced by another act. After they accumulate a tremendous amount of debt, the two borrow money from some shady characters: two knives and a wide eyed fork. When the dish and the spoon fail to fulfill their obligations to these shady characters, the dish is kidnapped in an attempt to scare the spoon into settling up. The spoon is forced to hatch a plan, and he and the dish rob a bank and decide to run from the law. Their running catches up with them; the dish ends up broken, and the spoon ends up in jail. After twenty-five years of imprisonment, the spoon is released and is reunited with the dish in a junk shop, where he chooses to reside. 
This book will serve as a valuable educational tool. It teaches children to be careful with their money, as well as the importance of staying away from shady characters. It also teaches the lessons of hope and not giving up.
