Let's Stick Together
Chopsticks for me was a blast to illustrate. I loved returning to the utensil characters we grew to love in Spoon—but I also liked drawing the simple but striking shapes of chopsticks on a page. This story is a classic-coming-of age tale about working together but also learning how to stand on your own. Written by the brilliant Amy Krouse Rosenthal (Plant a Kiss, Little Pea, Duck Rabbit).
Chopsticks is published by Disney Hyperion.
“This companion to the well-loved Spoon (2009) is equally charming.” —Kirkus Reviews
