“Spork was neither spoon nor fork… but a bit of both.” Both his mum and dad think he is perfect just the way he is. But Spork feels he stands out and doesn’t fit in with the other cutlery. He is the only piece of cutlery never chosen… until a “messy thing” arrives on the scene. Spork is perfect for the baby’s needs. This boosts his self-esteem, and he learns to love himself for who he is.
