Reviews

"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
