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?
