The So Book of Spoons is a collection of
uniform-length short stories and other material intended primarily for
children ages 6-9, although, due to the fact that it parodies typical
material written for children of this age, older children and adults may
well enjoy it too. Each story contains a reference to a spoon, which younger
children seem to enjoy looking out for, but which everyone else
tends to view with the same, doomed inevitability that they feel when awaiting
the appearance of Alfred Hitchcock in an Alfred Hitchcock movie. Be warned!
