Never Use a Knife and Fork
PUBLICATION JULY 2016
Hide spaghetti in your hair, Keep crisps in your underwear. Never Use a Knife and Fork is an outrageous, tongue-in-cheek exploration of mealtime chaos that will have children in stitches. Full of mischief and mess, it shows exactly what you SHOULDN'T do with food -- squish it, slosh it, squirt it, squeeze it! Rollicking rhymes combine perfectly with Nick Sharratt's trademark witty illustrations for a laugh-out-loud look at table manners.
A hilarious rhyming story about TERRIBLE table manners!
A gravy-stained extravaganza Observer
