Rosenthal, A. (2012).  Chopsticks.  New York:  Disney-Hyperion Books.

This is the sweetest book about two best friends - chopsticks.  They are always together...inseparable!  Until one day, one of them broke at the tip, kind of like a broken ankle.  Now, they have to learn to be apart.  The story is very witty.  When the break occurred, the chopstick was "whisked" a whisk, of course (p. 11).  I literally giggled my way through this book.  I will definitely have to search out Spoon, the companion book.
