And the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon by Janet Stevens, Susan Stevens Crummel

Every night the rhyme gets read. Every night Dish and Spoon run away. And every night they return—until tonight!
Where can Dish and Spoon be? The rhyme can't go on without them, so Cat, Cow, and Dog set out to search for their missing friends. But where to start? Should they go north? East? Northeast? They'll just have to read Fork's map, ask directions, and try not to get lost in Little Boy Blue's haystack or under Miss Muffet's tuffet or in Big Bad Wolf's kitchen—"FEE, FI, FO . . ." Oh no. Could that be the giant?

This children's book, And The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon, adds a new and creative dimension to the old "Hey Diddle Diddle, the Cat and the Fiddle" nursery rhyme. The authors have flushed out the main characters and have given them a depth that most nursery rhyme characters may never enjoy. The word play in the book is very clever so that it keeps an adult's attention, adds an element of surprise and humor, and can also help build a child's vocabulary. It is fun to read not only because the authors have created new rhyming poems in the book, but it also invites you to read them by turning the book in a circle to follow the text. If you have ever wondered what life may be like in the land of make-believe, this book provides the map and takes you on a tour of many of our favorite nursery rhyme characters' abodes. If you're tired of reading short nursery rhymes with very little interest or depth, this is the book for you. It will certainly be one that you and your child will enjoy reading over and over again.

I thought this book was a great spin on an old classic. The pictures are fun to look at as well.

My 5 year old son picked this book out at the library, and we both enjoyed it. Every time I read it, I find something new to laugh at, as does my son. When the cat, dog, and cow come to a fork in the road, their is an actual fork in the road who later says, 'let me take a stab at it.' LOL!

Everybody knows the old familiar nursery rhyme...Hey diddle diddle, The cat and the fiddle, The cow jumped over the moon, The little dog laughed, To see such sport, And the dish ran away with the spoon...Only this time they didn't come back. The cat, dog and cow are beside themselves. What are we going to do without the dish and spoon? Could this be the end of the rhyme? So taking matters into their own hands they set off on an adventure to find their errant tableware. This is a great twist on an old classic nursery rhyme. Children of all ages will love this book! The illustrations were colorful and creative. Elementary teachers, this is a must for your classroom!

My daughter (7) and I enjoyed reading this story together. There are some funny parts that need to be explained to younger readers. Great book for adult humor. I loved it.

This book was really a fun read, but younger children who you might think it is intended for might not get the puns and imagery. Fun for older children and adults who are familiar with nursery rhymes.
