A companion to Spoon and Chopsticks, this warm and wise story–packed with the clever puns synonymous with this popular series–celebrates the joys of slowing down.
- "Rosenthal's quirky, offbeat humor is sure to entice readers with its silly and clever references, featuring a straw willing to bend toward a new way of life.... Kids should readily identify with the appeal of straw-slurping races, and adults will appreciate the abiding message that taking things slow has great merit."—School Library Journal
- "Readers will appreciate the clever, punny text as well as Magoon's colorful, delightfully detailed illustrations.... A simple story, it nonetheless imparts great wisdom in the suggestion that life should be about enjoying the moments and making the good things last."—Booklist
- "A cautionary tale about making experiences last. The riotous utensil community Rosenthal and Magoon introduced in Spoon (2009) and continued in Chopsticks (2012) returns for a series conclusion starring a blue-and-white-striped bendable straw who 'has a great thirst for being first.'"—Kirkus Reviews
