The Adventures Of The Dish And The Spoon



Mini Grey's witty text and exquisite illustrations combine to make this a must-have gem.

Hey Diddle Diddle
The Cat and the Fiddle
The Cow jumped over the Moon.
The Little Dog laughed
To see such fun
And the Dish ran away with the Spoon

That's the bit we know - but have you ever wondered what happened next? Mini Grey, the creator of such favourites as Biscuit Bear and The Pea and the Princess, has this brilliantly funny and wonderfully inventive suggestion, narrated by one of the principal players - the Spoon himself.

Part love story, part crime caper, The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon is the rags-to-riches and back again tale of the most dazzling crockery-cutlery duo of all time.
