The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon is a picture book, written and illustrated by Mini Grey. The book won the 2006 Nestlé Children's Book Prize Bronze Award, and the 2007 Kate Greenway Medal.[1]

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 has this funny and inventive suggestion, narrated by one of the principal players – the Spoon himself!

Reader's Reviews


I think that the dish and the spoon were very bad at stealing the money in the bank! I really loved the pictures. This book is very interesting and very well written. I think that if anybody else who sees it in the library should read it! It's excellent! (Sapphire, age 8)
