The knife and the fork were taken from the drawer and put together on the placemat for their important moment at each mealtime when they could shine and glimmer and do their work helping the boy to eat his meal…but then, in a voice only a little boy or girl could hear, the spoon told the knife and the fork she was tired of listening to their arguments.
’The Knife And The Fork Go Dancing’ is a delightful story in which the main characters of the dinner table discover a way to end all squabbles. A young boy is let into their secret world when they find, quite by accident, that helping each other can change not only their working lives, but dinner time for him too. A clue is the spoon’s gleam that helps them to make-up and get along.
