A delightful, quirky compendium of dinner table tricks for those of us who realize you're never too old to play with your food…or fold your napkin into a pet rat… "break" your nose on the table (great for impressing small children) … or explain solar eclipses using simple items at hand. Starting with the assumption that many of us are too busy to have a real sit-down dinner very often, the author shows how to turn any meal into an opportunity for fun, family togetherness, and maybe even a little education. Fully illustrated (you wouldn't want to try the Terrifying Knife and Chinette Plate Trick without visual guidance, would you?) with charming, folksy line art, this book is like dining with the mischievous aunt we all wish we'd had.
