My rating:5 of 5 stars
This cute book is about a little monkey who learns how to eat with a fork and knife. It's a super cute story that teaches readers that learning can be important but it should be integrated into your life. It shouldn't take over your life. This story is a great story that early readers will love!

Bholu, a monkey, comes to the city looking for adventure. In a short time he learns city ways and when he returns to the forest, he continues with them.
Knife and Fork is Bholu's story and how he learns three important lessons:
"Monkey ways are right for monkeys just as human ways are right for human beings."
"Food and fun are meant to be shared with friends."
"Losing friends is easy, winning them back is not."
Knife and Fork is written in the tradition of fables of yore. The character of the monkey is bound to attract most children. The story itself can be used to start discussions with children about cultural differences, about friendship, and about accepting oneself.
Like the other books in the Chapter Book Series, Knife and Fork has short, easy-to- read chapters. making it suitable for all young readers, including Beginner and Reluctant Readers.
