Product description

Review

... her message of acceptance will resonate, particularly with parents.―Booklist

While some picture-book tales have difficulty promoting the 'different can be good' message without slipping into deep didactism, Maclear's text feels nearly effortless. The inanimate-object identification also pairs brilliantly with Arsenault's melding of mixed media and digital art.―Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

It's a story that could wilt under the weight of moral high-mindedness, but the graceful voice of Maclear, making her children's book debut, keeps it light and entertaining.―Publishers Weekly

Arsenault's expressive drawings of an un-happy spork are instantly winning.―The New York Times

... the lighthearted storytelling and whimsical mixed-media illustrations will draw readers in, and adults will find the book to be a useful conversation starter for the topics of race, difference, and acceptance.―School Library Journal
