    A step back in time with an updated children's rhyme and tune...from a Reviewer

    'Hey diddle, diddle, The cat and the fiddle, The cow jumped over the moon¿ and the dish ran away with the spoon¿' Have you ever wondered what happened to the 'Dish and the Spoon' in that long ago tune? Well¿ in a modern update by English author Mini Grey readers get reacquainted with 'Dish and Spoon'. In an oversize book, the story picks up with a record spinning a particular tune¿ i.e., recognizable by Dish and Spoon as they 'whirled around on the moonlit ocean'. The duo became famous as they performed in a vaudeville show¿ What follows is only natural with fame -- money, a car, jewelry, furs¿ in New York City shopping at Bloomingdale's, Tiffany's¿ Alas, they soon overspend, and borrow from 'A gang of sharp and shady characters¿' (literally, sharp utensils!). And what happens after that¿ as Dish and Spoon are unable to pay back the loan, and tragedy occurs. Oh No! Dish is broken¿ the tale jumps to twenty-five years later, after Dish had done his time in jail. The jacket and inside illustrations are stupendously large, colorful, and wonderful, displaying the Statue of Liberty, the Cows jumping over a Liberty-head coin, a limousine, and the shady, sharp characters, no less. Brrrr! Mini Grey has authored award-winning children's books, including her entrance into the writing field with 'Traction Man Is Here', and 'The Very Smart Pea And The Princess To Be'.
