The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon by Mini Grey
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Hey Diddle Diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon, the little dog laughed, to see such fun, and the Dish ran away with the spoon. That's the bit we know - but have you ever wondered what happened next? Mini Grey, the creator of such favourites as Biscuit Bear and The Pea and the Princess, has this brilliantly funny and wonderfully inventive suggestion, narrated by one of the principal players - the Spoon himself. Part love story, part crime caper, "The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon" is the rags-to-riches and back again tale of the most dazzling crockery-cutlery duo of all time.


Winner of Kate Greenaway Medal 2007.

Author Biography

Mini Grey was given her name after being born in a Mini in a car park in Newport, Wales. After studying English at university, Mini worked as a theatre designer for several years before training as a primary school teacher. This led to six years teaching in South London. She then moved to Oxford and started an MA in Sequential Illustration at Brighton University. During her time there she completed a project on Gulliver's Travels, turning it into a pop-up book and animation. The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon is Mini's fifth book for children.
