There are plenty of stories about being yourself, but usually they feature one creature trying to be another creature. In this book, a dog tries to be a fork, which is just wacky enough to tickle some giggles from a child. In order not to be rejected again, he tries to be other things, anything to be needed, and kept, and loved. The message comes through loud and clear, and the illustrations are totally fun!

A story about a dog, Sterling, who just wants a home and takes a circuitous route through a fork factory. Now that he has that home, having been delivered in a fork box, he'll do whatever it takes to keep it. The family takes in the dog and watches, bewildered, as Sterling behaves like a fork (because isn't that what they ordered?) Through the sweet, soft illustrations Cassie shows the hilarious attempts of the dog trying his best to be a fork and the family's wonder at why the dog doesn't behave like a dog. The randomness of the whole concept is delightful. The relationship between Sterling and the girl is heartwarming. The overall theme of "it is best to be yourself" rings sincere and true.
