GREAT message for a childrens' book
Reviewed in the United States on January 14, 2014
The basic premise of the book is that you shouldn't wish you were somebody else because they have different skills or abilities, and shoudl instead focus on your own skills and abilities that makes you different. In short, love yourself for who you are rather than wish you were someone else. I can't imagine a better message for a child.
So the wackos who think this book is somehow innapropriate for children because of the last line of the book that reads..."Come here, Spoon.".....please go back to the 2nd grade and learn a thing or two about grammar. That little period with the pointy thing coming out of it between 'here' and 'Spoon' in that sentance is called a comma. In this use, (Look I used one too!!) the comma separates Spoon from the rest of the sentence, desigating the word as a nous, not a verb. The capital 'S' is a good tip off of that as well.
So get a life, people. (That sentence is structured the same way. A command, telling you to get a life, then a comma, then the noun indicating who the command is directed toward. In this case, overly sensitive people who failed 2nd grade grammar.) It is not saying "Come here and spoon" like it's some kind of dirty silverware sex act. It's a play on words. If you can't get that, this child's book may be too advanced for your reading skills.
