A rich man is asked to be the godparent to the son of a couple. When he agrees, the couple invites him over for dinner--but only after they have saved their money to buy a third spoon in order to entertain their guest. The man is amused that these people are so poor that they didn't even have three spoons, but his amusement turns to envy when his hosts tell him that they have a friend who uses a different new spoon for every bite he eats. This books teaches a life lesson and represents cultural backgrounds with excellent colors and graphics.
