What did you like about the book? Brief informative text and bright cartoon illustrations trace the invention of the fork, as it was modified over the centuries. I like that there is humor among the information, through facial expressions and thought balloons. “Memory Game” at end.

Anything you didn’t like about it? There is no one of color represented in the entire series.

Who should buy this book? Elementary school and public libraries
