Rate this:
Every night the rhyme gets read. Every night Dish and Spoon run away. And every night they return--until tonight!
Where can Dish and Spoon be? The rhyme can't go on without them, so Cat, Cow, and Dog set out to search for their missing friends. But where to start? Should they go north? East? Northeast? They'll just have to read Fork's map, ask directions, and try not to get lost in Little Boy Blue's haystack or under Miss Muffet's tuffet or in Big Bad Wolf's kitchen--"FEE, FI, FO . . ." Oh no. Could that be the giant?

A delightful picture book that uses a popular nursery rhyme to craft this enchanting story. Dish and Spoon ran away but this time they didn't come back! The Cat, the Cow and the Dog set off to find their friends, and on the way they meet characters from other nursery rhymes who help them in their quest. This book is full of clever puns and lots of fun!

My 6 year old son and I each really enjoyed this book but for entirely different reasons. The rhyming was fun to read aloud for me, but there is a large map in the middle of the story that had my son quite intrigued. For him, it was the beginning of understanding the relationship between map distance and distance on the ground. Quite unexpected!
