This is not only a fantastic story, but full of hilarious puns as well. (My favorite is when the injured chopstick is “whisked” away.) Chopsticks are always together, but when one chopstick has an accident and breaks her tip, the other must face life alone while her partner recuperates. At first this is difficult, but in the end they find that their time a part strengthens their partnership. A great story for all, but especially for children who are clinging a little too hard to their friends. A must read for fans of Spoon. Highly recommended for grades K-3.
